Stadium food is something everyone looks forward to at events like such. This is a build your own hot dog with chicken, mac & cheese, guacamole, and sour cream. YUM

The first part of the event was the racing portions. The crowd was kept on their toes as to who the winner would be throughout all three rounds of racing. The overall racing winner was Neil Elliot in Max-D. Pictured here is Max-D and El Toro Loco fighting through the final turn.

Of course not everything went fine and dandy, and as you can see, there were some tossed truck and lost “shoes.” Pictured here is Monster Energy with a lost tire and El Toro Loco Flipped over.

After the races, the trucks were set loose one by one to show of their skills in the freestyle portion of the event. The freestyle winner was Eric Swanson in Obsessed, who landed his first ever backflip. Pictured here is The Ice Cream Man catching major air.

Anything that has to do with the word, “freestyle,” can definitely come with repercussions. This is FS1 Cleatus getting towed out of the stadium to undergo repairs after his engine would not start.
