The year coming to an end that only meant one thing, the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, Nevada was upon us. With last years Best Whip winner Tom Parsons on the injured list and asked to judge, we knew this year was going to be one for the books. Kris Foster, Vicki Golden, and new recruit Derek Beckering all mixed into a lineup of heavy hitters.
This year the format was a little different. Qualifying was outside on the pavement and semis along with finals were inside under the stadium lights. Qualifying went off as everyone went absolutely huge. Kris qualifying 3rd, Derek in 6th, and Vicki just below the qualifying spot. As the sun was dropping, stadium lights clicking on, and racing taking place. It was time for the semi-qualifiers to take place. Kris and Derek both went off throwing huge seat bounce whips and turn downs. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough, both barely missed making it into top three and into the finals. This event seems to be getting better and better each year. Can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year. Click photos to go big!
