It’s been a busy first quarter for the Bottom Freeder Motorsports gang as Crushstation and Lumberjack have been rocking arenas up and down the east coast. This past weekend though they got to stretch their legs, or claws in the Monstah Lobstah’s case when they visited Jacksonville, Florida’s EverBank Field for their first stadium event of the season. With a sell out crowd of 70,000+ Monster Jam fans in attendance it didn’t take much to get amped up for the show.
Greg Winchenbach and Mike Thompson had a great time flying the trucks around and whipping up some awesome donuts for the fans in Jacksonville. For Thompson and the Lumberjack, it would be one of their first ever stadium events and they got off to a great start with some big air, but a rough landing forced Thompson to bring the truck back to the pits earlier than he hoped. Luckily for them their will be many more opportunities for the Lumberjack to rock the house, but it was disappointing to be done early.
The Monstah Lobstah Crushstation was sporting a fresh new body for this weekend, but that didn’t mean Winchenbach was going to hold back in freestyle. They started off strong with a big jump right out of the pits to kick off their freestyle run. Winchenbach continued with the big air and even tried to work in a slap wheelie before a steering pump let go at the end of his regulation time. It would cut their efforts a little short but an otherwise strong freestyle run from the Crushstation team.
The next stop for Crushsation and Lumberjack will be in Biloxi, Mississippi for a three show weekend with Monster Jam at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. We hope to make many new fans in our visit to the Gulf Coast!
