Pro Armor/Wildcat Race Team Grab Podium at Moster Jam
Bruce and Tommy Scranton of the Pro Armor/Wildcat Race Team competed in Round 1 of Monster Jam in front of a 60,000 fans at QualComm Stadium in San Diego, Calif.
The Pro Armor-equipped Arctic Cat Wildcat is equipped with a Speedwerx clutch, Yoshimura exhaust, GBC tires and Douglas Sector wheels.
Tommy Scranton started in seventh in the first race. He passed most of the competition in the first two laps and on lap three he moved into first place which he held until the finish line! In the second race Scranton started on the front row and took the holeshot. He proceeded to check out in the second race with a dominating win in his Pro Armor prepped WildCat.
With the third race approaching it was shaping up to be a solid night for Scranton and all of the racers. The third race had the top runners from the previous races all on the front line; James Hill, Cody Rahders, and Tommy Scranton. Scranton again pulled the holeshot and led for a few laps before surrendering the lead to James Hill. It was a tight battled for first between Pro Armor’s Tommy Scranton and James Hill with IMG Motorsports. It was the Can-Am Maverick against the Arctic Cat WildCat.
Going into the final turn of the race with first place on the line, Scranton set up for the inside turn while it looked like Hill was going to take the outside but at the last minute both racers found themselves going for the same exact spot in the turn and collided. This put Hill on his lid and left Scranton dropping another spot to Will Rogers and Cody Rahders, who inherited first and second due to the mishap leaving Scranton with the final podium spot.
