Monster Truck Racing: Semi-Finals
Excaliber vs. Mopar Magic
The first heat of the Semi-Final Round would see two old names go at it. Mopar Magic was given a berth in the Semis after owner and driver Jack Brady was able to get the bugs out of the RII system, but would have to line up against Round 1 winner Sean Duhon and Excaliber. Sean Duhon took it a bit easy and was able to take Jack Brady and his purple Dodge out without a problem, taking the first spot in the Monster Truck Finals.

Hot Stuff vs. Bigfoot
After narrowly taking out his boss in Round 1, the California native Casey Ladelle would have his work cut out for him in the Semis as he would have to pull to the line against Dave Harkey and big blue Bigfoot Ford. Off the line it was easy to see who the winner would be, as Harkey charged hard off the Starting line and left Hot Stuff in his dust. With that, Harkey crossed the Finish line for an easy win and a spot in the Monster Truck Racing Finals.

Monster Truck Racing: 3rd/4th Place Race
Mopar Magic vs. Hot Stuff
The two leafers of this race would square up to see who would walk out with the 3rd place Racing finish. With Mopar Magic running fat, Casey was able to get off the line and to the ramp faster than Jack Brady was able to, finally getting the win to claim 3rd place in Racing, but not without a fight! It actually came down to a photo finish, with the photo showing Casey crossing the Finish line first. Jack Brady on the other hand had some post race issues as a header fire started up because of a broken line near the engine, which was quickly put out by the track crew.
