Crash rolled a stock auto 4 times and performed his Captain Explosion Dynamite Car. The concussion from the blast was felt in the sound box high above the track vibrating the windows. As hot as he was the volunteer firemen on hand was very surprised that Crash did not cinged any hair.
June 21 Lebanon Valley Speedway West Lebanon, New York with 2 BIG STUNTS . Crash and Wildman Al will perform 2 spectacular stunts for this performance. Undecided just what they will be but at present they will be flying an old hurst and demolishing a junk school bus.
With excellant weather for the nights performance the Thrillmasters atempted 3 stunts during the night. The first stunt was a wild areial domino crash performed by Wildman Al. Landing upside down he was a little shakin up. The second stunt of the night was performed by Crash Moreau who drove an old school bus underneath a second bus that was standing on it's rear end. Crash drove completely under the bus and kept on driving all around the track. The most spectacular stunt of the night. The last stunt of the night was Wildman Al leap of a hurst who only could jump at best 40 feet off a 6 foot high dirt pile. A big let down on what should have been a spectacular stunt, as he cleared 77 feet of the same size ramp a year ago in a garbage truck.
July 2 Lake Erie Speedway Northeast, PA with 5 BIG STUNTS. Crash Moreau and Wildman Al will be performing at least 5 spectacular stunts for this performance.
The weather was warm and ended a little cool on July 2 but the stunts were hot. First up, Wildman Al attempted to roll a car wheel to wheel but after 4 tries he only could put it on the roof but the crowd enjoyed the crash. Up next was Crash Moreau that did a spectacular Steel Wall Crash while driving a convertible. After intermission the Thrillmasters came back with wildman performing the CAPTAIN EXPLOSION Dynamite Car with burn. Loud explosions and a ball of fire. The next act was a 3-HIGH TORPEDO CRASH done by Crash with a firery explosion as he went thru the stack os 4 cars. Final act of the night was performed by Wildman Al as he flew a stock auto thru the side of a camper trailor as Crash exploded pyro in and around the trailor. Other stunts that was performed but not by the THRILLMASTERS was a car burn by Mike West with his jet owered JEEP and a 3 car flaming roller skate jump by the only man ever to jump cars on skates (not roller blades) Tricky Travelstead. The stunt ended on a bad note as Tricky was hospitalized with a broken wrist and a broken lower vertibre that needed surgery. Hoping he has a speedy recovery.
