2000: With Jim’s help, Chris completed Brutus and started competing along side Jim all over the country. Brutus was an orange S-10 with a Greek warrior on the hood.
2004: Chris was ready for a change. Fans would always tell him “I have a dog named Brutus” so he had an artist (Jason Becker) do some sketches and mold a cab of his S-10 pick up into a 3-D dog head. The fans response was incredible.
2005: Brutus would qualify for World Finals. He also participated in 2006 and 2007 and 2009. Chris and Brutus did an amazing job in 2009 and Brutus ended up 3rd in Freestyle (out of 24 trucks).
2008: New chassis for Brutus
2010: Chris drove his chassis with the Wrecking Crew body on at the World Finals during the encore, and did an amazing donut!
2011: Brutus was once again invited to the World Finals. Chris had an awesome freestyle run, but the trucks crashed hard while attempting a backflip…
