Indy and Roanoke-Keeping the Streak Alive

Indianapolis, IN-Sudden Impact Racing’s Redcat Racing Ground Pounder and Michigan Ice Monster enjoyed success at one of the biggest shows of the year—Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis was host to some great racing and freestyle action, and in front of a packed house of 70,000 fans, Redcat Racing Ground Pounder and Michigan Ice Monster delivered great performances.

The night began with racing action, where Redcat Racing Ground Pounder made its presence felt, qualifying in the top half of the star-studded field and looking fast around the course in taking a first round victory before falling in a narrow race in round two.

Freestyle was where it was at for both trucks on the weekend, with Michigan Ice Monster turning in a solid effort just a week after major breakage in Toronto. It was a confidence-boosting run for driver Chris Lagana. “I felt good about my run and feel like I’m more used to the truck every time I strap in,” he said. “I’m excited for the rest of the season and my showing here on a big stage like this.”


Redcat Racing Ground Pounder is earning plenty of new fans each week thanks to its great performances on the track and great looks off it. The truck took all the abuse that driver Chris Ryan gave it. “This truck and the RC version are both very tough,” he said. “I’m looking to step it up at each show I do, and Redcat Racing Ground Pounder is going to be in that winner’s circle before long. I’m never happy with how I do until it is!”


Sudden Impact Racing looks to take a few more victories in Houston, Texas on another of Monster Jam’s biggest stages. We’ll keep you posted!

Roanoke, VA-Sudden Impact Racing’s Amsoil Shock Therapy and Amsoil Excaliber kept right on rolling into Roanoke with more success wrapping up a fantastic January for the team.

During a three-show weekend, it is a test of endurance for the trucks, and Amsoil Shock Therapy as well as Amsoil Excaliber passed that test with flying colors, making every event better than the last. The biggest highlight of the weekend for Amsoil Excaliber was upsetting Grave Digger from the racing bracket to add to his three impressive freestyles in the tight confines of the arena.

“I had a great time this weekend,” said Amsoil Excaliber’s David Brown. “It’s tough to lead off freestyle, but I felt good about my runs and I gave the fans what they want—excitement!”

That excitement was shared by Amsoil Shock Therapy, who mowed through the racing brackets and was able to defeat all challengers for a racing victory on Saturday, adding to a weekend resume that included two other final-round appearances.

“My freestyles were good all weekend,” said Zimmer. “But there’s nothing like taking a racing win home for Amsoil and all the great fans. It grows wherever we go, and it’s a nice little streak to be going on heading into February.”

Indeed, the first month of the season is already over, and Sudden Impact Racing heads next into Tampa, Florida for a huge televised Monster Jam event. We will keep you posted on all the great action from there!
