MONSTERS ON A MISSION
EXTREME ETERNITY SHOW
AUGUST 21ST, 2005 - LAKE CITY FAIRGROUNDS
It was a HOT August day in Lake City, Florida. The humidity was high but the Monsters were in town for a good cause. Joey and Melissa Stathas of Citra, Florida brought out their two monster trucks for the first ever Extreme Eternity Show. The whole event would be FREE!! You heard it right, FREE!! The event would feature freestyle 4 wheelers and Monster Trucks. So enough with my intro lets meet the monsters!
THE TRUCK LINEUP
ROCK SOLID - Melissa Stathas
GOLD DIGGER - Nick Dejulio
EXTREME ETERNITY SHOW
The event started off with freestyle 4 wheelers. Nick Dejulio came out and took a MOON jump over the slap-wheelie hill and then ripped one of his world famous 1-wheeled wheelie's!! He wheelied around a few more times and then it was time for the monsters!!
Nick Dejulio would then bring out the Gold Digger Monster Truck for the first of two freestyle runs. He started out by making a nice hit over the car-van-car setup. He then got lined up for the slap-wheelie hill and pulled off a nice slap-wheelie!! Back for another hit of the car-van-car and that would wrap-up his run.
Melissa Stathas came out
next in Rock Solid and went right for the car-van-car set. She got a
nice iron wall off it and turned around to hit it again. An
identical jump and now time for some donuts. She whipped the truck
around for a good 30 seconds or more, shooting dust everywhere. That
would wrap-up her first run off the day.
Intermission came after Melissa's freestyle run and would go on for about thirty minutes in during which the Awesome ride truck gave rides for FREE. That's right Free!!
Next, it was time for round two of the show!!! A dude named Curtis, didn't get his last name, brought out his truck to try and climb over a huge log pile. It took him a couple of tries but he finally accomplished it. These pictures are from his attempts, so everybody enjoy!!
The Monster Trucks came back out for Round #2 and kicking it off this time would be Melissa Stathas in Rock Solid. She started off with an awesome side-ways climb over the car-van-car set. Then it was back around for a nice hit over the stack!! Once more, another hit, and then she wrapped up her run.
Nick Dejulio's turn came next and he started with a hit over the car-van-car set and then moved to the slap-wheelie hill. He got another great slap-wheelie to finish off his run, and wrap up the event!!
Well that's pretty much a wrap from all the pre-race activities, and it was on to Introductions and time to kick off the evening with the Timed Runs competition!!
The show was awesome and
Joey Stathas told the crowd that if they did not enjoy the show to see him
afterwards for their money back, lol. Well I guess everyone did
indeed leave happy because there wasn't even one complaint!!
