The Extreme Team has been on a roll since we’ve last caught up with you as Mac continues to dominate each show he competes in! We last left you in Corinth, Mississippi where Mac won a large portion of the events. The following week, the team went back to their roots and took the Extreme Team Ride Truck (affectionately deemed “Bubba”) to give rides to the fans at the Santa Rosa County Fair in Milton, Florida and then again at the Coastal Carolina Air Show in Wilmington, North Carolina. Mac and Liz love the opportunity to show fans what it’s like to ride in a real monster truck!
The team headed back to the shop to put the finishing adjustments on the Ballistic race truck, including a brand new locker and axles from Yukon Gear and Axle! The team made the short drive to Rainsville, Georgia to compete against some of the top independents in the monster truck world including Scott Hartsock’s Gunslinger and Steve Simm’s Stone Crusher and Mopar Magic. This show would prove to be a big test for the Extreme Team as none of the trucks in competition were willing to bow down. At the end of the weekend, Mac battle tested the new rear end parts and pogoed his way to two wheelie contest victories against the stellar lineup! “These Yukon parts really held up to the test! I purposely pogoed the truck vertical on the wheelie bar both nights to put a tremendous load on the parts and they held flawlessly! We can’t be happier and look forward to promote the strength of Yukon Gear and Axle’s parts in the monster truck world!” said Extreme Team’s Mac Plecker.
This past weekend, Mac and Liz were invited to compete with the monster truck world’s newest promoter: Old Skool Motorsports. “It was an honor to be contacted by Chandler and Rodney to compete at their shows.” said Plecker. “It was a cherry on top of the weekend to arrive and see both the 1988 chamion truck USA-1 with the legendary Everett Jasmer behind the wheel and our good friend Bob Chandler with Bigfoot 1 also in attendance! Old Skool Motorsports has a great vision to show the fans exactly where the sport of monster trucks started and how far it’s progressed. We look forward to running with these guys all summer long!” said Plecker. Names like Predator, Prowler, and Clydesdale would give Mac a run for his money all weekend, but it was Ballistic sweeping the entire weekend’s wheelie, racing, and freestyle competitions! These wins further solidify Mac’s tour of dominance in 2011! Be sure to check out TheMonsterBlog.com for coverage of the Augusta event on the latest episode of TMB TV’s ActionTracks.
The team will enjoy a short break to revamp the trucks and regroup before heading to their second Old Skool Motorsports show in Sevierville, TN on May 13-14. Stay tuned to the schedule page in the coming weeks for all of our summer dates. We encourage you to check out our sponsors located on the right side of the home page. Without companies like PTC Performance Torque Converters and Transmissions and Yukon Gear and Axle, the Extreme Team wouldn’t be operating and competing in the upper echelon of the monster truck world
