Default Stadium Truck MX Start

Today at the Cactus Classic the Bmain stadium truck guys gave the crowd a treat and decided to start MX style.

Here is the carnage as it unfolded, it was awesome.

Had a blast watching some great racing at the Cactus classic. Cant wait for next year (already saving up for the entry fee).

I even learned a valuable lesson... If I make a mistake, cut across the lane, and wash out in front of another driver at the end of the straight, causing him to hit me, all i have to do is throw a hissy fit on the stand and I can ruin that drivers chance at a win by having him called back even though it wasnt his fault.

A couple of questionable calls from the announcer. Whether or not you agree with some of the calls depends on whose team you were on. The call was made, cant change it now. As far as hissy fits, talk to the guys on the driver stand.

That was AWESOME!!!! The best part was EVERYONE went full noodle at the tone. I guess the best part was everyone on the drivers stand was laughing and having a great time, the drivers proved you can have fun racing toy cars.

THAT was awesome too!!! the crazy thing is, he was really smooth on a few laps.


You really have to give HUGE props to ALL of the drivers, it almost seems like they put the "fun factor" before anything else. There sure was a lot of LOLing coming from the drivers stand all day. AWESOME!!

I agree, pretty much ruined the race for 3rd in 13.5 SC A main. I thought Humpty would have let Watts by since he was so much faster. Just about half a second per lap. Maybe thats why he DQ'ed his next race. Karma.

Thats the breaks sometimes in racing. Doesnt even bother me that Humpty initiated the event. Its the fact that some over paid race director made a decision on something he didnt see. I guess some people just have more pull at that track.

Why would anyone ever let anyone by in a main event at a national race.. (unless being lapped of course)

Its dosent matter how fast you are .. You still have to pass the cars ahead of ya. Without wrecking them. Its called racin..

As for my car being DQed. Guess what I was the race official and Dqed my own car because it was 4 grams light. At post race inspection. But i am sure you could do a better job than me.. By the way where did you finish???
