Wheelie competitions are where drivers do their best to stand their trucks completely vertical and perform the best wheelie possible. Donut competitions feature drivers putting their big motors to the test as they try to get their trucks to spin around into a donut and see just how far they can push it. Finally there’s freestyle where drivers get to free reign of the track to pull off the wildest stunts possible with big air, donuts, wheelies and more!
