As a special treat for the die hard Crushstation fans of the New England area Greg Winchenbach and the Bottom Feeder Motorsports team decided it was a fitting weekend to break out the blue lobster body for a three show weekend at the XL Center. Joining in the action of course was teammate Lumberjack as they were excited for an opportunity to run close to home.
Mike Thompson and the Lumberjack had a pretty good weekend with the truck as they continue to get better with every event. While they went winless on the weekend it certainly wasn’t for a lack of effort as they put together strong efforts in every competition. Thompson shined the most in freestyle where he started off the weekend with a fourth place finish Saturday afternoon, before closing out the weekend with a second place freestyle on Sunday.
For Winchenbach and the Crushstation they were all about rocking the house in Hartford. While wins are nice, it’s more about thrilling the fans and Winchenbach did just that. The weekend saw the Crushstation rack up a freestyle win, a wheelie contest win, and multiple second place finishes in other competitions. The big wow moment of the weekend that stole the headlines was a wild wreck in freestyle on Saturday. A bad bounce from a big air jump across the floor sent the Crushstation end over end and into the pits. It was an unfortunate situation as the Crushstation did hit Instigator before coming to a rest, but both trucks and drivers were okay. While neither driver cared much for the incident, you couldn’t deny that it was thrilling as the fans at the XL Center in Hartford were on their feet and cheering the Crushstation!
For now the team is busy at the shop in Maine getting ready for next week’s event in Trenton, New Jersey with Monster X Tour. Thanks to all our great fans and sponsors for your continued support!
