During wheelie contest, Jim and Chris did really good

During the races, Chris made it to the final friday, but lost against Digger. Races were always really close

Avenger won the freestyle during the first show Saturday. Both trucks did a really good job. Avenger was the first to hit the huge dirt ramp from both sides.

Brutus had big air and some hard landings

After a nice sky wheelie, Avenger landed on the front wheels doing a crazy stoppie

At the end of the last show, Jim wanted to back up on to the big dirt hill to end his freestyle, but instead he drove up the side and rolled over.

Even if the Arena was not that big, there were a lot of crashes during the weekend. Grave Digger crashed during the first Wheelie contest and Safe Auto too. For his second Wheelie contest, Digger got stuck on the cars stack and the track crew had to push it to make it go back on his wheels

Captain's Curse and Digger crashed to during their freestyle

Safe Auto Minimizer and Grave Digger gave a great show all weekend

Superman and Captain's Curse did really good too

Cody Elkines, Trevor Vines and Jason Hamrie were there too for the freestyle motocross
