After having been in Johnstown, PA for the Monster Truck Winter Nationals the day/night before, I found myself checking into a hotel in downtown Salisbury at 4:30am. The next morning (Saturday, of course) my mom and I worked our way over to the Wicomico Civic Center where the track was being groomed for the 2:00 afternoon race, and began to scope out the action from the night before in Salisbury. Friday night it was Shane Blaire in Bigfoot sweeping both the Racing and Freestyle portions of the event, with the Maryland based Black Jack truck taking the runner-up spot in Racing, and Play'n For Keeps placing second in Freestyle. The stage would be set once again as six awesome Monster Trucks would duke it out twice on Saturday; once at 2:00pm and once at 7:30pm. The Monster Trucks in attendance were:
