The first round of racing featured a very close race between Iron Warrior and Avenger. The two fought a very close race, and Iron Warrior had the victory in his sight. The Avenger came out of nowhere and flew past the Iron Warrior for the finish. The officials reviewed the replay several times and decided Avenger took the win by inches. The Black Stallion squared off with Bad News and Bad News took the win in the first round.

In the doughnut competition, the concrete floor was a challenge for the drivers. “You would not think that a slippery floor would be a problem when the goal is to slide a 10,000 lb. monster truck around in circles,” said Vaters. “The reality is the trucks slide to one side or the other instead of settling into tight doughnuts.” A few of the drivers made a revolution and then had to stop for safety reasons. No one wanted to go out of bounds or slide into the race lane cars.

During the freestyle portion of the show Michael Vaters and the K&N Ford Powered Black Stallion finished off his run with a high flying leap that landed ten feet away from the center van stack. Vaters was in reverse the entire time. Grave Digger took the Freestyle win by one point over Black Stallion.

During the last show of the weekend, Vaters stood the K&N Ford Powered Black Stallion Straight up and down on the track. The fans in Dayton were not disappointed.
