04/9/2007 - The Swamp Thing 4x4 monster truck team as been racing hard this year and was only 10 points behind the leader (Bigfoot) in to the last round of racing at the Norfolk Arena. 10 points is a very small gap as there is a maximum of 178 points per round, so the team had high hopes to winning the title this year.

After setting a good time in qualifying it was on to racing heats. The team looked at the heats line up an saw they would be in the 2nd heat V's Bigfoot, so we knew they had the win to make the final.
So we drove Swamp Thing 4x4 up to the start line and you could tell the crowds knew this would be a big race. Off the start line we make a good start and it was head to head at the turn round, but on the way up to the 6 car jump the truck was not pulling like it normally did and we finish 2nd. After the race we were parking the truck up in the pits and the gearbox lost all drive and this would rule us out for winning the title. But lucky the team had enough of a gap over third place they could not be caught and finished 2nd over all for the third year running.
