Another wild month of action is in the books for the Extreme Team. The story has been wins and wrecks as we’ve certainly had our share of both to start out 2012. Hattiesburg, Mississippi and West Monroe, Louisiana would be the next 2 stops on the Monster X Tour for Mac and Ballistic. After an incredibly tough week of repairs following the vicious wreck in Gonzales, the truck was back together and ready for action.
Mac staged some epic duels with Derick Anson in Heavy Hitter and Robert Parker in War Wizard over the next 2 weeks, taking a couple of wins in Ballistic and thrilling the great crowds with some awesome wheelies and crazy cyclones. Oh yeah, and rollovers…
We also want to give a call to our buddy Tommy Garst who got the chance to drive the Monster X truck in Monroe. He did a great job in his first time behind the wheel of a race truck!
Following our four weeks on the Monster X Tour, Mac had amassed 10 wins and sits third in the point standings as the tour moves on. Our next chance to put some points on the board will be in Augusta, Georgia at the end of April – we’ll look forward to it, big thanks to Danny Torgerson and the whole group for having us this year!
From there it was on to one of our favorite yearly events, the Darryl Starbird Battle of the Monster Trucks at his big auto show in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Every year, the fans turn out in droves to ride the Extreme Team ride truck and we always have a great time putting smiles on their faces.
The racing is always great in Tulsa and this year Mac and Ballistic would once again walk away with a big win as he took down 7 great trucks to get the victory on Saturday night.
While we weren’t part of the competing trucks, we did return to the Monster X Tour this past weekend with the Extreme Team ride truck as they came to Asheville, North Carolina. Mac has put on some great performances there in Ballistic over the years and a lot of the fans remembered us. They had a great time getting a ride in the Extreme Team machine, hopefully next year we can give them more rides and thrill them with the race truck too.
Now the team will take a couple weeks off to re-group and get Ballistic back in top shape before heading to Fort Wayne, Indiana for AMP Live Events. Stay tuned for more updates and always be watching the Schedule to see where the Extreme Team is headed next!
