Kansas City Backdraft Report

• February 18, 2013

Kansas City, MO-After rocking the sold-out St. Louis Monster Jam, Jeremy Slifko and the Backdraft team stayed in the same state and brought their unique brand of motorsports entertainment to Kansas City for a grueling four-show, three-day tour of duty. Backdraft was up to the challenge and got some great runs in with the new chassis.

"I've been adjusting to the chassis and so has our crew," said Jeremy. "We love performing for our fans, and to give them the best show possible, a weekend like Kansas City where we run a lot is just what we need."

What Jeremy refers to is the wear and tear on the trucks. Luckily an experienced driver in Jeremy coupled with a great crew leads to success on all fronts. Slifko was steady in all four shows in the top half of the wheelie and freestyle brackets, and made semi-final round racing appearances a regularity. That consistency is a sign of things to come.

"I enjoyed Kansas City and meeting all the great fans here, spreading the Backdraft name and taking care of our sponsors as well," said Slifko. "We cannot do what we do every weekend without them."

Pittsburgh is next on the schedule for Backdraft, and we will be sure to bring you all the updates! Stay tuned.
