Monster Truck Throwdown’s “hometown throwdown” invaded the Ionia Free Fair in Ionia, Michigan for the 5th consecutive year! Record breaking crowds saw some incredible monster truck action! First it was West-Michigan native, Jeremy Hosman and Reckless Drivin taking his square body Chevy VERTICAL to kick off the wheelie contest. His call would be answered by Devin Jones as he stood the Barbarian up in a fantastic slap wheelie to edge out Hosman for the victory.

Racing saw Jamey Garner and Over Bored meet Devin Jones and Barbarian in the finals! In a photo-finish, Garner would come out on top, barely taking the win over the Barbarian machine. Donuts would be Garner’s time to shine again as he lit up some incredible donuts sending the 11,000lb truck into a ballistic set of cyclones.

Freestyle action would see Ionia, Michigan native, Elliott Miller take an early lead in Wild Side with a fantastic run but in the end it would be Jamey Garner and Over Bored taking the win with a run that had it all!

Thanks to all of our great fans that came out to support the Ionia Free Fair and Monster Truck Throwdown! See you in 2017!
