OPTIMA-sponsored Crushstation Wraps Up Spectacular Monster Jam Season
Greg Winchenbach and his OPTIMA-Crushstation were spectacular in only their second season of Monster Jam, proving the “Monstah Lobstah” is becoming one of the best, independent monster trucks on the circuit! The team embarked on a nine-week tour starting in January, competing in seven states and Ontario in front of sold-out crowds in arenas and stadiums. “Looking back on our season I couldn’t be happier with the progress we’ve made.” stated team owner and driver Greg Winchenbach. “My team wants to be the best in the industry and we’ll use this season as motivation to continue to rise to the top of our sport.”
Beginning in January, Crushstation competed in New Hampshire, Michigan, Ontario, and New York, earning a spectacular 7 of 7 wheelie contest wins and stellar debuts on the Monster Jam stadium circuit, finishing 5th of 16 trucks in Detroit and 5th of 12 trucks in Toronto. In addition, the Toronto Monster Jam was filmed for SPEED TV’s “Monster Jam” and Crushstation will make its T.V. debut on March 24, 2012 at 5p.m.eastern on SPEED TV.
February and March boasted more success for the Bottom Feeder Motor Sports team as they rocked New England. Crushstation racked up more wheelie contest wins and crushed the competition in racing and freestyle. To end the year, Greg and Crushstation competed in Bridgeport, CT. against the best competition in the world including Grave Digger, ultimately winning 4 out of 4 wheelie contests, 2 of 4 racing competitions, and 2 of 4 freestyle wins!
“To finish the year winning 8 of 12 events was awesome. In our industry, that’s very impressive as the level of competition has become very tough. To consistently earn wins against guys like Grave Digger and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles makes you proud.” stated Winchenbach. “This spring and summer we’ll continue to improve Crushstation and can’t wait at the opportunity to build on what we’ve accomplished this winter.”
