The Forward/Backward Race was won by none other than Marshfield’s Fran Esser.
Larry Draeger of Marathon and Mark Fletcher of Wausau were the winning Relay Race team.
The Trailer Race was won by Ben Becker of Stratford.
“Hot Rod” Rodney’s first stunt for the evening was to show the crowd how an air bag goes off on impact. He drove his Saturn into another stationary car. The first attempt did not set off the air bag. So, Rodney tried again, a little faster. The air bag did deploy. But he wasn’t done he continued to smash this small red car until it was super compacted.
“Hot Rod’s” other stunt for the night was to smash through a camper and into the car pulling it. Once again, he did just that. His stunt car drove through the camper and slammed into the back window of the Blues Brothers car that was towing the camper. His crew then removed the stunt car and the Blues Brothers car and “Hot Rod” then smashed through the camper until there was nothing left. But he still wasn’t done. Rodney brought out his Ford Ranger that he won the Tire Race with and rolled it over for the crowd.
The finale for the evening was an awesome fireworks show put on by Specialty Fireworks.
The winner of the Wal-Mart bicycle was Daniel Sternweis of Marshfield.
