Description: Dan Runte in the E3 Spark Plugs Bigfoot #18 won the King of the Beach title last week in his return to Virginia Beach, but the weekend ended on a sour note as he rolled the truck going over the bus stack Sunday afternoon.

Bigfoot #18 Claims King of the Beach, Stone Crusher Dominates Freestyle

(Virginia Beach, Virginia – MTX Event Production PR) – BIGFOOT and Dan Runte returned to Virginia Beach 13 years after his appearance at the inaugural event in 2000 and narrowly claimed the King of the Beach title and the new George Carpenter Cup over hometown favorite Steve Sims in Stone Crusher.

Runte appeared in all four final rounds of racing, winning 3 and giving up Sunday’s win to Doug Noelke in Tailgator. Those victories and solid performances in wheelies and freestyle throughout the weekend put him in a strong position to take the overall win. Sims, the Virginia Beach native and clear hometown hero, had been blasting the course all weekend and completely swept wheelies and freestyle competitions. Three vicious freestyle runs took their toll on the Stone Crusher however and electrical problems caused him to miss the racing segment of Sunday’s show, virtually handing the win to Bigfoot. Young gun Jeremy Slifko and his Backdraft machine landed in 3rd overall with impressive freestyles each day.

Dan Runte continues to have a great 2012 season, capturing the 2012 King of the Beach crown.

With all 4 performances at near capacity or sold out, fans also were treated to the debut of two brand new monster trucks. Maxie Broaddus of Tappahannock, VA showed off ‘Walking Tall’ on Friday night with an unscored freestyle exhibition. Steven Sims Jr. and the Monster Trucks Unlimited crew unveiled their brand new truck “Hooked” on Saturday afternoon with another unscored bonus freestyle. It competed on Saturday night and Sunday in place of Monster Magic who lost an engine due to a broken cam shaft.

Final Monsters on the Beach Standings:

1. E3 Spark Plugs Bigfoot #18, Dan Runte – 290 pts
2. Stone Crusher, Steve Sims – 281 pts
3. Backdraft, Jeremy Slifko – 247 pts
4. Gunslinger, Scott Hartsock – 228 pts
5. Tailgator, Doug Noelke – 225 pts
6. War Wizard, Randy Moore – 211 pts
7. Eradicator, Andy Slifko – 210 pts

Scoring: 90pts available each performance (30/wheelies, 30/racing and 30/freestyle). 360 total possible.
