The new year is already upon us as Greg, Mike, and the Bottom Feeder Motorsports gang made the trip down to Manchester, New Hampshire’s Verizon Wireless Arena for their first Monster Jam of 2015. The refreshed Crushstation was ready to do what it does best and make some mayhem in Manchester. Before the events Greg got to meet many awesome fans at the Party in the Pits where some of the fans showed up with their own Monstah Lobstah signs and creations. Friday night would be the first event of the weekend and Greg got his first win out of the way early as he planted the Crushstation’s tail into the cars with a spectacular wheelie in the wheelie contest. Round 1 of racing saw Crushstation fall to Monster Mutt Dalmatian but they would return in the semi-finals as the fast loser. Greg took advantage of the reprieve and was able to defeat Storm Damage. Greg would meet the Northern Nightmare in the final round, but come up just short of taking the victory.
On Saturday Afternoon the success in the wheelie contest continued as Greg put up another tail plant from Crushstation and stood the truck straight up and down on it’s way to victory. In racing Greg defeated Monster Mutt Dalmatian in round one before falling to Scooby Doo in the semi-finals. The donut contest saw a wicked set of cyclones laid down as the Crushstation smoked the floor with a ferocious donut. The judges would score the performance with a score of 23 which was good enough for third place. Freestyle saw some big moves with some good leaps over the cars and the van stack before Greg mixed things up with a jump in reverse over the vans! The run set the tone for the rest of the field and only Grave Digger and Northern Nightmare able to top the Crushstations score of 21 for a third place.
Electrical issues Saturday night started early during the event when crew chief Mike Thompson discovered the culprit, the magneto. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough time for repairs and the Crushstation would be sidelined for the rest of the night. The team has headed back to Maine to prep the truck and get ready for a trip west to Michigan as the Crushstation returns to Ford Field!
