Team Soup!

For those wondering how we actually did at the event… we did ok, but nowhere near winning. These guys have a TON of experience with these trucks and style of racing. Matt and I have never raced a Clod in our lives.

I DQ’d my first qualifier by red lighting (took off too early), the 2nd qualifier (one per lane), I took my time making sure not to DQ. I ended up qualifying mid pack, 69th. In the first round bracket I DQ’d by overcompensating a steering mistake and crossed the center line. Rookie mistake. I wish we could have had some track time before the event started.. seeing we’ve never driven a clod on carpet, or a track.. ever.. but oh well.

Matt qualified an impressive 9th place out of 24 entries in the Retro class. This automatically placed him in the 2nd round of brackets. He then won his first round, moving on to round 3. He lost that round to Tim Powers, who ended up winning the whole class. Matt had a great run in the Tekin/Spektrum/Pro-Match/Savox powered Black Stallion Clod!

Overall, we had a very fun weekend. I met lots of online friends I’ve talked to for years. We both got to check out the Clodbuster racing scene. We got to meet Joe, our newest writer. I think the event was a great success. There is talk about doing another one next year. Seeing as how our Clods for this competition will be gone after the Benefit concludes, I’m not sure that we will be back.. but who knows.. there’s plenty of time to build another Monster Truck for this.

I want to thank everyone that helped us build these trucks for this event (and for the CMN Benefit). We could not have made it here without you.
