Our four trucks were in Las Vegas for the World Finals. Brutus (Chris Bergeron) and Avenger (Jim Koehler) were competing, and Spike Unleashed (Jeff Anderson) and Wrecking Crew (Steve Koehler) were on display

Just after the official photoshoot, we decided to take couple of pics of our drivers!

Jim had a Blue driver suit..... it had to match the truck! Thank you to our sponsor RJS Racing Equipment

Some shots taken during the photoshoot

During the pit party, we also took pictures of the drivers!
Rich could not make it to Vegas this year, so Jeff filled in for him.

A lot of fans were there at the pit party.
We even had members of our fan club from Ontario and Alberta who came to see us! And also "Jim's swim Team"

(Chris & Brutus, Jim, Steve, Rich & Spike, & Stephanie)

Chris, Jim, and Steve made practice runs on the track on Thursday. Steve was not competing in the show but was excited to be able to feel the track!

Practice and Qualifying went pretty good for Chris and Jim. Before the show, Chris changed his tires, to enhance the traction, and Jim changed the gears, and the transmission.

With their Qualifying times, Avenger & Brutus ended up being up against each other in the first round! Brutus won!

Brutus also won against Pablo, in Turtle, and then lost in the 3rd round against Tom Meents in Max D. Chris was really happy to make it to the 3rd round! It was awesome!

Chris went 1st for Freestyle, and ended with a score of 29. At the end of the show, he was 3rd place, after Air Force Afterburner and Bounty Hunter. The new truck handled really good and Chris did a really good job.

Chris ended his freestyle with a donut, and the transmission was so hot that the truck was smoking.

Avenger started his freestyle really strong... and then a crooked landing projected the truck on his roof after only couple seconds on the track. It was really disappointing, but at least the fans were excited to see him all geared up and ready to jump in the water!

A lot of fans brought banners to show their support!

Other trucks at the show were: Air Force Afterburner, Bounty Hunter, Blue Thunder, Nitro Circus (Pastrana 199), Stone Crusher, Monster Mutt, Taz, Monster Mutt Dalmatian, King Krunch, Grave Digger, Batman, Donkey Kong, El Toro Loco, War Wizard, Maximum Destruction, Destroyer, Turtle, Madusa, Safe Auto Minimizer (no photo), Superman & An Escalade
