Black Stallion and driver owner Michael Vaters returned to Monster Truck action at Tyler County Speedway in West Virginia. The Iron Warrior, piloted by Trey Myers started things off at the track with a wheelie demonstration.

Vaters in the K&N Ford Powered Black Stallion followed Myers and stood the big truck straight up and down over a pile of cars. At this event, the car stacks were also arranged for a grudge match race and the K&N Ford Powered Black Stallion edged out the Iron Warrior during one-on-one competition.

“The real thrill for the crowd came when it was time for Monster Freestyle,” said Vaters. “The organizers brought out a motor home and I made short work of it and destroyed the camper with Black Stallion.” Myers ended the freestyle section with lots of high flying action in Iron Warrior.
Jim Kohler and the Avenger, Chris Bergeron in Brutus, Jay Snyder in Screamin’ Demon and Tim Bee in the Killer Bee were Iron Warrior and Black Stallion’s competition in the next event at Motor Mile Speedway in Radford, Virginia.
The wheelie contest was close because all the trucks were vertical, but Brutus took the win. There was also lots of racing. “Long dirt ramps lead up to the cars so the Monster Trucks could really open up,” said Vaters. “Each round of racing went faster as the drivers got a better feel for the track.”
The racing portion came down to Black Stallion taking on Jay Snyder in the Screamin’ Demon for the final round. “It seemed as though Jay was going to take the win,” said Vaters. “He bobbled in the last turn and Black Stallion went to Victory Lane.”
Vaters also drove a Kamikaze Jet Powered 4-Wheeler and lit up the speedway with 25 foot long fames thrusting out the back of its engine. “I backed up to a junk car and had a little Car-b-que,” he said.
Vaters uses K&N
on his Monster Trucks. “Over my many years in this business I’ve used a lot of products, but K&N is the one that can handle the dirty and dusty environment during Monster Jam competitions,” said Vaters. “We are known nationwide for our wild and crazy driving and the ability to push our engines to the limit. We’re hard on our motors and K&N gives us the protection we need for competition.”
