Ballistic / Extreme Team Ride Monsters Ready for 2011

Published on December 15, 2010

The Extreme Team has finished an impressive 2010 race season and have been hard at work at the shop over the last few weeks. Both the Ballistic race truck and the Extreme Team Ride Truck have undergone routine maintenance and testing in preparation for the winter 2011 season.

Mac and Liz also recently attended the annual Monster Truck Racing Association Meeting & Banquet. The team gave away an awesome HPI E Savage R/C Truck as part of the fund raising raffle following the banquet and the big prize went to one lucky young man. Thanks to our friends at HPI for donating the truck to help raise money for the MTRA!

The team begins their season in Daytona, Florida with their friends on the Monster X Tour at the Ocean Center. From there, the Extreme Team travels across the Southern portion of the U.S. to compete in the full TBO Entertainment tour with great friend Tom Bogus and his staff and finishes up the month of February in Tulsa, Oklahoma for the Darryl Starbird Battle of the Monster Trucks and bookends the tour with the Monster X Tour events in Asheville, North Carolina.

Stay tuned for updates all through first quarter as Mac and Ballistic take on the competition!

Extreme Team Wrapping Up Great 2010

Published on October 31, 2010

The Extreme Team made the journey from Georgia to Searcy, Arkansas for the inaugural Monster Truck Jamboree at the White County Fair. Facing the up and coming driver Chris Lagana in Razin’ Kane and good friend and brother-in-law Bruce Haney in the Bad News Travels Fast, Mac knew he would have to step it up to win. In the wheelie portion, Mac stood the Ballistic truck and walked across the set of cars much to the approval of the crowd. In racing, It came down to Mac in Ballistic racing Bruce in Bad News Travels Fast in a best of 3 Chicago Style racing final. After handily winning race 1, Mac looked to be en route to the night’s racing competition win, but was judged edged in races 2 and 3 for a strong second place. Check out video from the entire event courtesy of TheMonsterBlog.com’s Kaedon Berry below!

Freestyle started off with a bang as Mac vaulted the Ballistic truck skyward over the van stack then planted the truck vertical on the car set. To cap off the run, Mac ended with a salute to the roaring approval of the Searcy fans. Mac and Liz would like to thank Greg Price and AMMP Motorsports for the opportunity to compete and for a successful show.

The team’s next venture was a little closer to home as they piloted the Extreme Team Ride Truck at the Wings N Wheels event at the Warner-Robbins Air Force Base in Warner-Robbins, Georgia. During the course of the day, the team gave rides to hundreds of satisfied customers and were able to take in the sights and sounds of the air show.

The Extreme Team will attend their final event of 2010 at The Rock Ranch in Rock, Georgia on November 6 for The Rock Fundraiser.
