Miami and Rosemont-Challenges Accepted

Rosemont, Illinois-Sudden Impact Racing’s Amsoil and Amsoil Excaliber went into a grueling five-show weekend in Illinois looking to continue their success from Tampa. The trip from the sunshine state to one of the coldest cities in America ended with more proof that Amsoil Shock Therapy and Amsoil Excaliber can stand up to any test given them.

The tests on this weekend were indeed plentiful, as after an action-packed first show, Amsoil Shock Therapy encountered major difficulties after the wheelie contest Saturday.

We ended up breaking an inner axle, and then saw problems with the pinion gear as well, and there was just nothing we could do but work our tails off to have the truck ready for the next show in the evening,” said a disappointed Jon Zimmer. “We had an axle stuck in the truck so badly we had to pull it out with a bulldozer. I felt like we recovered the best we could given the circumstances.”

Amsoil Shock Therapy also hooked an edge and rolled over during one of the racing shows, doing a bit of damage to the fiberglass body but otherwise none the worse for wear. Running a monster truck to its limits to please Amsoil and the fans is always on Sudden Impact Racing’s minds, and this week was no different. Amsoil Excaliber was able to make a final-round appearance and both trucks put in solid freestyle efforts, making every pass their best.

After a lot of hard work in the shop, both trucks will be ready for their next event in Cleveland, Ohio, and the team will look to reverse their bad luck there in a spot that did Amsoil Shock Therapy quite well last year. We will keep you posted on all the great action from there!

Miami, FL-Sudden Impact Racing’s Redcat Racing Ground Pounder and Michigan Ice Monster went into another high profile event in Miami looking to bring home great performances for the team, going hard all weekend in the sunshine state.

Redcat Racing Ground Pounder performs well in all conditions, and the sandy track suited driver Chris Ryan just fine after a tough racing pass. In freestyle, Redcat Racing Ground Pounder smashed its way through a boat and kept right on going!

I always like to put on a show for Redcat and all the Ground Pounder fans,” said Ryan. “Redcat Racing Ground Pounder is all about being aggressive!”

Also making a statement was Michigan Ice Monster, but unfortunately after a round two appearance in racing, a planetary locked up during a high-speed donut for an early end to a promising run.

I was disappointed I didn’t get to do more for the fans,” said driver Chris Lagana. “I felt like my run in Houston had me on the right path, but we just had a bit of bad luck. I’m looking forward to Salt Lake City next week to get a better score!”

We will keep you posted on all the happenings from Salt Lake City from both Redcat Racing Ground Pounder and Michigan Ice Monster as the team looks for redemption in Utah!
