In the same vein as the Monster Million trifecta, if a racer nabbed all three holeshots, he would be awarded a new Toyota Tundra. After claiming the first holey of the night, JG33 was in line to claim the new pick-up, but poor second moto start killed the chances. With no one claiming the truck or million dollar bonus, Toyota and Monster made out like bandits.
Josh and Ashley Grant’s son, Wyatt, was all over his dad’s bike before the night show.
Ryan Dungey bending over and suicide shifting his bike was one of the most impressive things we’ve seen. Dungey clipped a TuffBlock in the first main and was forced to ride the entire main in second gear. The woes continued into the next race, as he worked the shifter with his left hand down the flat straights and over the bigger jumps. Immediately after the second race, KTM quickly ushered the bike back to the pits and in the third race, all appeared to be good. The debate on if Dungey managed to bend the lever again or if an internal issue was to blame was thrown, but no word was issued.
We did manage to steal this shot after the first moto. Crazy.
