Farmington, MO – August 3rd-4th Recap
The Monster Truck Throwdown 2017 season continued with another brand-new stop on tour at the St. Francois County Fair in Farmington, Missouri. We pulled out all the stops for this one, bringing three former series champion trucks to town, including Barbarian, Over Bored and Crushstation, along with the fan favorite Lumberjack. Maine’s “Monstah Lobstah” took the first win of the night, as Kurt Phillips pulled off one of the team’s patented “Lobster Tail” wheelies. Devin Jones was on a rail in racing, taking the #1 spot in qualifying and blowing by the competition to put Barbarian in victory lane. The other competitors are usually battling for second place in the Donut Competition these days, and that would be the case again tonight as Jamey Garner in Over Bored pulled off a crazy cyclone on his way to the win. Finally in freestyle, Kurt Phillips laid down a strong run in Crushstation, but Jamey Garner’s hard charging driving style would be enough to put Over Bored over the top to take the victory.

Friday

Beautiful weather and a packed grandstand are two ingredients for a great show, and that’s exactly what the Monster Truck Throwdown crew served up Friday night in Farmington. Kurt Phillips once again did his best Greg Winchenbach impression in the first competition of the night, burying the tail of the “Monstah Lobstah” in the cars to sweep wheelies at the St. Francois County Fair. Similarly, teammate Chris Sawicki channeled his inner Tom Durkee to defeat Devin Jones in Barbarian in the racing finals and claim his first ever series win behind the wheel of Lumberjack. With unfortunate breakage putting Jamey Garner and Over Bored out for the night, Kurt Phillips seized the opportunity to take home his second win of the night after putting Crushstation through the spin cycle. Freestyle started off with solid efforts from Lumberjack and Crushstation, but Devin Jones absolutely burnt it down in Barbarian to take the final victory in Farmington. A big thanks to everyone with the St. Francois County Fair board for having us, and to all the wonderful Farmington fans for coming out to see the show!
