For the first time, our four trucks were performing in Montreal!
Like always, the pit party was packed.
Check out more pics of the pit party on our Pit Party Photos
Rich and Steve, as well as the other drivers, were interviewed during the pit party
by Doug De Nance for the Monster Spectacular DVD
Our trucks were pretty fast during racing, but it was not enough to be able to move to the next round.
The track was actually really tacky. Chris rolled over, causing major body damage, but nothing else broke, so the truck was ready for freestyle!
Other point of view of Chris' crash
Spike was the first truck to come out for Team Scream! Rich did awesome, and the truck finished the run in one piece! It was a solid run for Spike, and the crowd was excited, especially with the wheelies!
Following Rich was Steve, with Wrecking Crew. It was the first time that Wrecking Crew was performing in Canada. Steve did a really good job, and had a cool save after hitting one of the van stacks.
In Montreal, Steve was trying for the first time his new
neck brace. Wanting to put it to the test, he pushed the truck to its limits.
Chris came out strong, hitting the van stack. He also did a crazy donut, but unfortunatly, at the end of his donut, the truck had steering problems, and could not keep going. It was a short run for Chris, but the fans were impressed with what they've seen!
Right after Brutus, Avenger was up! Jim did an amazing freestyle. He was all over the place and got big air. Avenger's donut was also one of the best of the night!
Avenger ended the freestyle with a broken sway bar. Overall, it was a great show for Team Scream. Awesome freestyle run, and no major damage! The crew was happy to be able to get the trucks in the trailers without any problems!
Other trucks at the show were: Shock Therapy, Screamin' Demon & Iron Warrior
Iron Outlaw, AfterShock & Excaliber (Kristy Edge)
As well as Bounty Hunter and Black Stallion, who performed a "double" freestyle!
At the end of the show, the drivers waved to the crowd
