Joey Gargaro and his R/C Monster truck racing team made the 13 hour drive from Portsmouth, Virginia to participate in the race. This was the second event for Joey’s crew their first experience with R/C Monster Motorsports was at Dennis Anderson’s Digger’s Bash back in May of this year in Poplar Branch, North Carolina. Joey said that they all had a great time and was well worth the trip! Joey hinted that they may make another road trip back for The Man’s Expo event scheduled for November 25-26, 2006 in Melbourne, Florida.

The Chase for the Championship #5 event well attended and the competition was again top notch. Steve Tash set a new track record in Carpet Drags driving his Byron’s Revolocity with a time of 1.310 seconds. Supercharged driven by Gregg Lafferty would be the only driver to defeat Steve and Revolocity as Steve out powered the track with a wheel stand in the finals. Monster Mutt would win Big Block Carpet drags with a time of 1.398 seconds over Stuart Shaw, Jr. driving NAS-T-Maxx.

Drivers navigated around a modified St. Louis style racing course for the Side-by-Side racing event. The course was designed by Track Director Bari Musawwir. Speaking of Bari, he once again drove Monster Mutt to the winners circle in the Big Block class further extending his points lead over his competitors. In Tough Truck and Pro R/C Monster Truck classes Zeek Heard placed team trucks in the finals. In Tough Truck Zeek won with Grave Digger 20 defeating his son Justin driving Bounty Hunter. In the Pro R/C Monster Truck class Zeek again won with Grave Digger 20 defeating Batman.
