Backdraft Starts Off Strong in Manchester!

Backdraft •

Manchester, NH - Team Backdraft kicked off the 2013 tour of destruction with a bang, picking up a victory immediately and grabbing the immediate attention of fans and competitors alike. Jeremy Slifko picked up right where he left off in 2012, by charging hard towards the top.

“It was a solid first weekend,” said Slifko. “I love getting racing victories, especially against the field we had here in Manchester.”

Indeed, world championship trucks were in the field, but none of them could touch Backdraft in the Saturday racing show on the hard concrete surface. Even with the debut of a brand new Backdraft truck in San Antonio right around the corner, Jeremy pushed the big red fire truck hard, and nosed across the finish line just ahead of Maximum Destruction on the way to a huge racing victory.

“It gave me confidence heading into the debut of the new truck,” said Jeremy. “I couldn’t be more excited for our fans, friends, and sponsors to see the fresh piece in San Antonio, and I want to send the old truck out on a good note too. I felt like we were able to do that.”

San Antonio is a huge weekend in monster trucks and for Backdraft, with upwards of 100,000 people packing the Alamodome to see Slifko debut the brand new truck. Stay tuned for more updates!
