Click here for the Monster Jam recap

Next stop on our West Coast Tour was San Diego! After spending another week at the Swanson's place, changing Avenger's motor, fixing fiberglass, washing trucks and tires, changing a driveshaft... we were ready for San Diego.

We got there at 1:30am, and tired up 3 of the 4 trucks. We were done at 3am, and it was time to go to bed since we had to wake up at 5am for media!

Trucks ready: 3am

There were 4 different TV crews, and we were doing interviews from 6 to 9. It was a long, but fun morning.

Spike, Wrecking Crew and Avenger all lost their first round, but Brutus had amazing racing passes and made it to the Semi Finals.

Wrecking Crew was first up for freestyle. He had a great freestyle run, and got some big air.
(Score: 15 + 1 Bonus = 16)

Steve's freestyle ended up with a rollover. Besides body damage, the truck was fine.

Spike was the second Team Scream truck up for freestyle. Rich was all over the track. He even did a donut on the table top! It was awesome. Unfortunately, Spike had some transmission problems, and the truck caught on fire.
(Score 17 + 1 Bonus = 18)

Brutus' freestyle started great! But unfortunately, he could not fill the clock due to steering problems.
(Score 11)

Avenger was on a mission as soon as it lefts the pits! Big Air, saves, and an intense crash at the end!
(Score 27 +4 Bonus = 31)
Avenger ended second in freestyle.
