This......IS........a review of an event that I went to last night that I'm pretty sure nobody will care about but I like to do cuz I only go to MJ twice a year!
Soooo, Newark was an interesting one this year in just about every competition, so here's my review of the 7PM show last night:
Racing - Right off the bat we got somethin from this. Preston couldn't get off the line at first when he raced Krysten, and they had to restart the race. Krysten ended up winning it. Other than that, just about every other race was pretty tight, with a lot of close finishes. Finals went down to Mark and Colton, in which Mark would get the crazy bull the Racing win.
ATV Racing - Well, both of the first two heats saw an easy winner, them being Sipes and Colton. Krysten cut a corner in her heat, and I think she got penalized for it. In the final heat, however, that's when things got real. When the black flags began, Krysten and Preston got into a tussle on the final turn, and both were black-flagged. Final race was between the winners of the first two heats, in which Colton would come out on top.
Two Wheel Skills - Just about everyone was able to pull off somethin here. Krysten went first and over-rotated a sky wheelie, landing hard on the rear end and going right wheels up. Once again this competition would be very close between Colton and Sipes, but this time around it would be Sipes who took the win.....Colton should've won tbh
Donuts - Oooooh boy, this one. I found myself covering my eyes with my arm with each competitior that did their donut in front of me after Krysten caused a tiny piece of dirt to hit my right leg (I was in the front row). SIpes was unfortunately out due to mechanical problems following his TWS run. Colton wasn't able to get a cyclone in, which didn't do him any good in terms of scoring. After a lackluster first half, however, Krysten would make the comeback she needed, as she would be the winner.
Speedster Racing - This was my dad's favorite, mainly because of one thing that happened. On top of each race being very tight, there was one in which a crash landing almost occurred. Mark almost landed his speedster right on top of Colton's in an attempt to make a comeback. Ultimately, he clipped it, and got karma for it by rolling in the third turn. Since that was the final round, Colton would take his second win of the night in this competition.
Freestyle - As to be expected, this was easily the most interesting competition of the night. Hicks got things started with an okay run, but then came Sipes, who pulled off the only backflip of the night, as well as some huge air. Mark ended his run with a very interesting move; going reverse between the miniflip ramp and the ramp next to it, resulting in him getting massive air. Brittany got some attention from the crowd after she knocked the hood off her truck, leaving the bottom half of the mouth of Zombie sitting by itself. Krysten had a pretty good save in her run, and almost crashed into Blue Thunder, but she prevented that with a nice stoppie. Lastly, Colton would have a decent run, and knocked his hood off as well. Ultimately, the shark would take another bite out of the competition, as Sipes would take his second and last win of the night.
Overall Event Champion - Colton - 41 points
Final Rating - 8.863 - Definitely one of the better MJ shows I've attended, and easily the best Newark show I've attended. Now, I wait for MetLife, which will be on........idk
