Runte and Christensen Repeat Performance

Del Rio, TX – The Monsters of Destruction National Monster Truck Series filled the Val Verde Fairgrounds to capacity for the second straight night and again displayed the best monster truck racing in monster trucks to date. Dan Runte in his #88 Summit Bigfoot dominated Straight Line Drags and repeated his Round 3 performance and took home first place again in Round 4. He was magic on the light tree averaging a .088 reaction time in all Straight Line Drag races. He would face the #01 Dragon Slayer in the finals and run the fastest time all weekend with a 2.360 second pass.

Christensen and his #01 Dragon Slayer would continue to dominate the Chicago Style races. Christensen would face Kelvin Ramer in the #18 Natural High after Runte in the #88 Bigfoot cut a tire in the heat races and could not compete in the semi-finals which gave Ramer a bye run into the finals.

“It’s unfortunate that we cut a tire here tonight” explained Dan Runte, driver of the #88 Summit Bigfoot. “We were on a roll and wanted to double up tonight and take home both trophies but it just didn’t work out.”

Christensen would run a 15.467 second pass and Ramer would post a 18.121 second pass in the finals of Chicago Style Racing.

“Chicago Style is one of my favorite types of courses to race”, said Christensen. “It takes a lot of throttle timing and braking to post a fast time and we did it consistently all weekend.”

Christensen stands atop both Straight Line Drags and Obstacle Course Racing once again.

“I really wasn’t paying attention to the points being so early in the season”, said Christensen. “I was just trying to do what I do every time I go out there and that is to beat the other guy on the line.”

Rounds 5 & 6 are set for Willard Speedway in Willard, Kentucky April 14th and 15th. Trucks scheduled to appear are #88 Bigfoot, #01 Dragon Slayer, #50 Samson, #02 Spider-Man, #18 Natural High and Virginia Giant. Don’t miss your chance to see MOD action live!
