January has turned into February and the Extreme Team is continuing their hot streak! The team left Jackson and headed to their next show with their friends at TBO: Monroe, LA. Unfortunately, mechanical gremlins overcame the Ballistic truck on Friday, but it was business as usual on Saturday as Mac earned 2nd in racing and dominated the freestyle competition. The final show of the weekend saw Mac back at 100% as Ballistic would go on to win both the wheelie and freestyle competitions to close the weekend and, on top of it all, the truck was in one piece!
The next two weeks took the Extreme Team to Baton Rouge, Louisiana and Tupelo, Mississippi with six shows in two weekends. Mac piloted Ballistic to a very impressive showing, earning a clean sweep of wheelie and freestyle in all 6 competitions and boasting a 70% win percentage in all competitions between both shows! At the end of January, Mac is #1 in total freestyle wins in all of monster trucks with 9 wins and is currently tied with Bigfoot #14 and Grave Digger The Legend for third in overall wheelie wins in the monster truck industry.
The team has arrived in Tupelo, Mississippi for their final TBO Entertainment show of 2011. From there, the team heads to one of their favorite shows yearly in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Darryl Starbird Car Show and Battle of the Monster Trucks. Stay tuned to the website in the next few weeks for updates on the team!
