The past few weeks have been quite exciting for the Black Stallion team. The high flying action started in Quebec City with Michael Vaters giving the fans one of the tours most intense freestyles.


The Monster Spectacular tour then traveled west to Cornwall Ontario for a Friday evening show that featured Michael Vaters setting a huge bar for the other drivers to live up to by pulling off one of his signature moves the “reverser” right off the bat during the wheelie contest !The team then packed up and quickly made its way back over to Moncton New Brunswick to take part in the Sunday afternoon show that has always sold out- and become a yearly ritual for Michael Vaters- being one of the longest running events for Michael Vaters to attend year after year. Michael Vaters has consistently tried to give back to his fans over the years- and as a new way of doing this, Michael Vaters now takes the flag off of the back of the truck at the end of the show- then runs into the crowd to sign it and give this special gift to a lucky young fan. Needless to say it makes for a show stopping moment with the entire arena going crazy over the chance to get the actual race flag off of the Black Stallion!

The team is splitting up next week with Michael Vaters and the pit crew heading back to Canada for more stops on the Monster Spectacular tour and Trey Myers will be flying across the Atlantic to take part in the Monster Jam tour in Europe.  He will be piloting the teams Psycho Jet 4-Wheeler in Poland, England, and Sweden.
