Okay so I just got back from Newark, which means it's time for my good ol' fashioned long awaited highly anticipated annual review:
btw i got front row seats this year....I felt like a VIP person after first arriving at my seat.
Racing: Nothing really special here, most matches were expected victories and the finals went down to Brandon and Coty, with the winner being Coty.
ATVs: Pretty much the same as Racing.....until something terrifying happened. In the Black Flag race, all was going well at first, until someone's ATV clipped the rear left wheel of Ami's ATV, sending both her and her ATV tumbling. The ATV rolled on and over her, then she crawled to the side of the track. The race was immediately halted, and officials and other drivers rushed over to her. After a few minutes, a stretcher was brought out, and Ami was strolled off the track. Ultimately the winner was Mark, but this was sadly the end of the night for Ami.
Two Wheel Skills Challenge: This was actually pretty interesting. Cory pulled off the rare incident of his truck being stuck on the rear end, which surprisingly scored him well. Mark did his typical "snort the bull while doing a popper" move, and almost won with it. The winner would be Brandon who did three poppers, one in which putting his truck on one wheel for a brief moment, then bringing it back down.
INTERMISSION CAUSE WHY NOT: Got me some dippin' dots, and....yep. They were good tho
Donuts: Eh....nothing too special outta here, either. Mark and Brandon looked like they were about to straight up slam their trucks onto their lids for a moment, but other than that, it was alright. Brandon made it two straight wins here.
Speedsters: A few upsets here, such as Coty losing to Matt, whose luck bit him in his next match as he rolled in the second turn. Brandon made it yet another win after taking out Justin in the finals.
Freestyle: Kinda interesting as well. Brandon had two nice saves, but was severely underscored. Kayla got some good air and a save as well. Matt wrapped up the night with a meh run. Kayla took the win in the end, and Brandon took the Overall Win.
Overall: 7.5/10 - Many interesting moments throughout the night; pretty good show overall, just about as good as it was last year, and certainly a LOT better than MetLife last year, as well. Speaking of MetLife, the long wait and hope for a better show than last year begins.....
Also, at the end when all of the drivers were walking around the track, I was doing the bull horns as Mark was passing by. He spotted me doing it and did 'em right back at me. Pretty cool moment.
