Saturday night November 9th, inside the Casper Events Center in Casper, Wyoming was a fun night for all!
First we started out with some mud slinging with 4×4 trucks racing thru the Mud and it was a blast! First place in the modifieds was a run with over 56 feet by Conrad Nuyens of Cheyenne, Wyoming. What is amazing is usually the first driver out has a rough time of it, but Con was on the gas and used all his driving skills to win – second place was Bill Wells and third was Tyler Lounsberry.
The fastest run of the night was by a Super Modified with a time of 3.63 seconds thru the 100 foot of 4 foot deep mud pit. It was a Casper, Wyoming driver Scott Sierz that took the big money and Aaron Warborg was second with a time of 4.34 seconds with David Wolfe picking up third with a time of 5.96. Scott clicked a wheel at the finish
Also we featured was a small car demolition derby. Some of the region’s bravest souls will put their cars to the test and crunch some metal competed for a large cash payout that includes $600 and a 3 foot tall trophy for the winner. More prize money and trophies were distributed to the top 5 finishers. First place in the derby went to Joe Skaij as he put out second place Danee Mason. She almost was in the mud bog when we flagged her out. Two wheels over any boundary is the rules and she fought hard. Third place went to Michael Cook and fourth was Curtis Day and fifth was Travis Long.
The BAD BOYS of Professional Wrestling to this already huge event. WRESTLING has not been in Casper for over 10 years and the crowd seemed to really like the midget and girl wrestlers as well as some of the other matches!
This night provided plenty of thrills, possibly a few spills and definitely something to talk about for a long time. This was a great way to set the tone for the NO LIMITS Monster Truck Tour coming to Casper on Saturday night February 15th. Tickets are on sale now for that event. Good seats will go fast for sure.
Saturday night in Billings was truly one of the best Monster Truck shows we have ever seen.
The NO LIMITS MONSTER TRUCK TOUR blasted off Saturday Night November 2nd inside the Rimrock Auto Arena in Billings, Montana. An enthusiastic crowd showed up to see what this was all about and went home knowing they were all about opening up the rules and having all these other obstacles on the track for the trucks to blast off of. A huge school bus was sitting in the middle of the floor and on one side it was covered with a huge steep dirt ramp – the other side has cars and van stack so we gave the people what they wanted to see as these drivers blasted off the school bus without hesitation and got some HUGE air!!
Basically we know the new open rules policy below ….
MOTOR SIZE – NO LIMIT
BLOWER SIZE – NO LIMIT
WEIGHT OF TRUCK – NO MINIMUM
TIRE SIZE – MUST BE STANDARD 66 INCH TALL MONSTER TRUCK TIRES
HORSEPOWER – NO LIMIT
TYPE OF FUEL – METHANOL with any desired additive!
may not be the usual but we know we have the safety in place and the drivers want this as well as the spectators!
We have opened up so the fans can see bigger and better shows! NO LIMITS!!!
It worked! Next Monster Truck show is after the New Year but is a whole new beginning and every Monster Truck show we have we are going to strive to get a school bus!!
Saturday Nov 2nd, 2013 the finishes were almost exactly what had been projected.
GHOST RYDER wins Wheelie and Freestyle contest
Captain USA Tyler Groth took the racing win!
The 2013 WHITE BUFFALO BIKE FEST in Snyder, Texas is history and this year’s event was amazing! The Chamber has not all the numbers together but it was apparent their work paid off with huge crowds each day from many different states including Arizona!
Larry Quick his monster GHOST RYDER showed the Snyder spectators what a real monster truck looks like! He was getting huge air off every jump and every old car and van!
We drew a big crowd for the BAD BOYS OF WRESTLING. Each day just under a 1,000 people streamed in the coliseum to enjoy the men and the ladies that came to put on a great show! her top names in region.
Motorcycle jumping by Red Bull Gold medalist Clint Esposito did the jump over the locomotive train located at the Coliseum. He also completed a spinning back flip 35 feet up in the air while doing that jump!
Rob Carpenter on his Buell and 1200cc Harley Sportsters did all sorts of tail light rubbing wheelies and Smokey burnouts while broad sliding the motorcycle with one hand.
These two motorcycle riders have a tremendous amount of talent and they won the crowds over each show.
We are excited for the possibilities this Bike Fest might bring in 2014 when we get together with Mel and the rest of the Chamber.

We have just finished two nights at the Southern Oklahoma Speedway just 4 miles south of Ardmore!
It was a great 4th of July weeekend only 90 miles away from our office. Our crews are wore out and we are glad to be home but we had a monumental time and shows in Ardmore this past weekend. Not only did we have great monster truck shows but the stock car and modified racers were plain dirt track crazy. The place is a homey environment with neighbors become friends after they have attended the races there. People that had never been to the speedway came because of our show which has been inside the Hardy Murphy Coliseum since 1987. There they have grown to know Checkered Flag Productions and about our events as well as our company.
Now they have came to the Speedway and found a whole new group people that are involved in the track and they (John and Nicky Webb) have sunk they whole heart and soul into this track and brought many friends with them and have made many because of what they do there.
Our monster truck teams were amazing this weekend. Seeing Travis Rife who is the son of Dave Rife that used to have the Black Widow Monster Truck back a few years. He and his boss for the weekend are both second generation drivers as this past weekend he drove for Zach Adams which his father is Greg Adams who started with Krimson Krusher 20 plus years ago. That was awesome to see these two young guns on the road together.
Larry Quick was off the hook as usual with his GHOST RYDER’s yes that is right he brought two…………..one to race and one to back flip! His 2013 Winter Nationals Championship fresh in his mind he was nothing but wide open! His main competition was everywhere as Larry had his hands full with Hurricane Force, Storm Damage, Eliminator, and Defender as well as Darren Schnell in Bigfoot!
The winner in racing was Hurricane Force in racing for the weekend and Ghost Ryder in Freestyle and Larry Quick crashed both nights in the back flip truck but he was ok and the truck fired up and moved back to the pit area on it’s own power. It was a great show and we appreciate everyone that came and those who were in the show! Already we are talking about next year as the track is the promoter we just were hired to make sure they had the best show. Thanks SOS RACE TRACK we appreciate your faith in Checkered Flag Productions to make sure the crowd had a great and safe show!
On Wednesday when we arrived here in Billings the weather was terrible. It was barely 40 degrees and windy and raining. For several days everyone was wondering if we would be able to to our Red Neck Nationals event outside in front of the METRA grandstands as planned. Then Saturday came and the sun came out as the Lord shined his blessings on us the Red Necks turned out and we partied like crazy with MUD RACING, ROLL OVER CONTEST, DEMO DERBY, SHOW N SHINE, AND TUFF TRUCKS and the show was awesome!
The Montana and Northern Wyoming crowd was awesome with over 4,000 fans in the stands we all had a good time with plenty of crashing, mud flying, some awesome jumps by the tuff trucks, and just overall every part of the show was something special.
We would like to thank all the competitors, fans, the METRA crew, the Galloping Goose Motorcycle Club, Hacksaw and Lee, and the crew from the demo derby that kept things rolling. We also have two great sponsors the BOOT HILL INN and SUITES with Shelly and her crew are just awesome to us, and the bunch from City Towing, and Billings Collision Repair.
We are coming back indoors to the Rim Rock Auto Arena at the METRA on Saturday night November 2nd and we have something really special coming then. As always we try to keep things interesting by changing it around and this time in November it will be off the hook also!

LARRY QUICK – GHOST RYDER MONSTER TRUCK
After a 4 month struggle the 2013 Monster Truck Grand National Championship was decided in Pocatello last Saturday night April 6th inside the huge Holt Arena.
Larry Quick driving the GHOST RYDER monster truck from Illinios was on top of his game and although taking a controversial loss to Zach Adams in the racing final he fought back to gain the huge 6 foot tall trophy and the title.
As the two came off the line it was Zach Adams in his Ford Rislone DEFENDER that took the win after Larry thought something was the matter with the lights,” when we took off the light was green and then it went off and I thought maybe there was a problem or a restart so I let off the throttle. When I figured it out that nothing was wrong Zach had too much of a lead to catch up, but I will be back in freestyle to win the Championship!”
Zach Adams takes the 2013 Grand Nationals as the Race Champion but as Larry said there was Freestyle with equal points. Earlier Quick had won Wheelie Contest so it was just about a for sure that he would take the Championship. But when Zach ran his freestyle it was apparent he was not laying down! “We are off for two months so I am not worried about my truck getting tore up we are going for it!” Zach was hitting nearly everything and getting some huge air but there was one thing he did not hit and that was this “INSANE DOUBLE JUMP” where a huge steep 8 foot tall ramp was designed to shoot the trucks high in the air to either clear a set of cars or land on them. Zach got a great score of 24 with 3 sets of 8′s by the judges who had seemed to be tough all night.
Then it was Quick’s turn after Bigfoot driver Rick Long went out and did a great job in BIGFOOT #11. Larry was on the gas screaming the motor as he attacked one obstacle and jump after the other. He had no mercy on his little black mustang as he stood on the gas and landed cross ways and on the front end then on the back end he was all over the place and then he aligned himself up and went “INSANE!” Not once by twice he hit that jump with the first time he landed in the cars and nearly rolled. The second attempt he was going probably 60mph and flew with a perfect launch over the cars and the crowd came to their feet! Judges of course had no numbers other than 10′s to give him and he locked up the Championship!!
Congratulations to the “Hardest working man in Monster Trucks” many time fan favorite Larry Quick for being the MONSTER TRUCK GRAND NATIONAL CHAMPION for 2013!
Also for a hard fought battle to Zach Adams in his Rislone Defender for bringing in 2nd place in the Championship. Third place was also another Truck Wurks Team member Dallas Barr in the Bar’s Leak Eliminator.
