I saw on Outback Thunda's website that Paul Shafer Motorsports is going to be in Knoxville. Anyone got any info on rest of the lineup?
Collecting dust? I think not.Rampage, Carolina Crusher, Smoke are all sittin in his shop, probably never gona see daylight again....One of my friends went over there last tuesday and they are all still there but Cadaver...
yes the rest are being worked on and should make returns to Paul Shafer Motorsports shows. Since smoke and the old BV chassis have been sold, obviously he cannot redo them. Wild Thang 1 and Kirks MP are in Kirks possession so whatever he is doing with them is beyong my knowledge.So all chassis but smoke and the original Carolina crusher will eventually return?
No offense to Paul or Ed, but that one PENDA championship is more prestigious than the other championships combined - and then some.It would be neat to see Gary buy it back, but if he did there is the likelyhood FELD would purchase it from him if he did sell it back, which Paul does not want happening. And the value is up because the truck won 3 addition championships under Shafers ownership. 2 CFP(Harper) and 1 PSM(Tigue) Championship. Porter only on won the inaugural Penda Season Championship with it. It is more valuable than you may think just sitting there.
Paul ran his trucks with Monster Jam in both 2000 and 2001, so I don't think it was the contract thing.Their site says Knoxville, but really its in Sevierville, which is about 20 miles outside of Knoxville, in the city of Pigeon Forge (does that sound confusing?)
I remember from back in 99 or 2000 that Schafer signed a exclusive TV deal with Milestone Motorsports, even though they went bankrupt back in 2000, he couldn't run any of his trucks at any other televised events aka monster jam, for fear of being sued by milestone and that's why we haven't seen him for awhile, plus the fact that he is a very busy business man. Perhaps that contract has finally ended and we can see his trucks back on TV.
