Rain and dangerous thunder storms moving through the area cancelled Friday night’s event, but the system passed through and the Saturday event held a full house of Monster Truck fans.

The evening started out with the Wheelie contest. Each driver put big air under the trucks but Michael Vaters in the Ford powered K&N Black Stallion took the wheelie win.

The track was wet from all the rain but the track crew did its best to keep it in shape. Round one racing paired the Ford powered K&N Iron Warrior, driven by Trey Myers against Killer Bee. Myers moved on to the next round. Brutus beat Screamin’ Demon and the Ford powered K&N Black Stallion beat Avenger. In the end it was Black Stallion paired against team mate Trey Myers in Iron Warrior. The wet track worked out well for Myers in the Iron Warrior. His gears allowed the truck’s tires to dig into the dirt and he beat Black Stallion in the finals.

In the freestyle competition Monster Trucks skated across the track and went high in the air. The 700 pound tires slid the trucks in circles for the cyclone donuts. Michael Vaters won the freestyle event in the Ford powered K&N Black Stallion.

Vaters uses K&N products. “We use K&N air and oil filters,” he said. “We’re hard on motors at every race and K&N protects our engines. K&N can handle the Monster Truck scene.”

On Sunday, the wheelie contest was the first event of the day. Each truck launched off the cars and went high into the air. Freestyle action was high and tight as the drivers maneuvered the huge trucks and demonstrated their driving skills. The Avenger flipped over his truck toward the end of his exhibition and Vaters took the second freestyle win of the weekend.

The Black Stallion Team next heads out to the West End Fair in Gilbert, Pennsylvania.
