MONSTER TRUCK THUNDER
Longhorn Arena Tuscumbia, AL
March 23, 2002
|Tom Bogus and Donny
Smith teamed up to bring the Monsters back to North Alabama March 22-24, 2002. Three
Monster Trucks made it for the show, along with some great extreme motocross riders, and
some crazy riding lawn mower demolition derby drivers.
|The show started out
with the monsters making solo qualification runs to set up the event brackets, and give
the fans their first look at the field. Greg Adams was the first driver to test the
course. Greg has a butt-kickin' new truck. He traded in the old Krimson
Krusher for a slick new Ford he calls Team Summit. Greg made the qual run in 3.75
seconds. Next out was home town hero Donny Smith in his Bad Influence Ford.
The Bad Boy's Toy laid down a 4.15 second qualifier. Kirk Dabney and his Extreme
Bear Foot Ford was the last to qualify, but had the fastest time at 3.65 seconds.
|All three of the trucks
in the show are good freestylers, so this promised to be the best part of the event.
The fans weren't disappointed. The same order used for qualifying was also
utilized for freestyle. Greg Adams put his new truck through the paces to show the
crowd what it can do. This truck is LOUD! Greg and Team Summit put on a great
performance to get the competition rockin'.
