The Radioactive Mega Truck owned by Chris Foy won it's first Mega Truck Series race Saturday, June 13th at Twitty's Mud Bog in Ulmer, SC. The Team Slinger truck typically driven by Foy had a stand in driver when doctors orders prevented him from getting behind the wheel.
Foy broke his arm early this year, and it has not healed as planned. While Chris drove in the first two Mega Truck Series races, finishing 5th and 7th, he was unable to race at Twitty's.
Who better to sit in his seat, then the man who built his truck Michael Trotter, with Trucks X Trotter, known for building some of the baddest mega trucks around. Trotter strapped in and took the win after a couple seriously fast runs. Trotter who also drives Steamboat, opted to let his teamate Ken Brewer drive that day.
"When Trotter won in my truck it was awsome, I felt the same feeling as if was in the seat," said Foy. "I felt like it was an honor to have Trotter, not only the builder of my truck, but one of the best drivers in the sport fill in for me at Twittys. He is definitely someone I have looked up to since day one of getting into the sport."

Foy's arm appears to be healing and he should be back in the seat for finals at Dirty Turtle Offroad Park in Kentucky.
"I'm itching every day to get back in the seat, I never new I would miss something so much, it has become apart of my life," said Foy. "But for now, I have to sit back and wait until I'm fully healed. If all goes as planned I will be back behind the wheel August 1st at DIRTY TIRTLE for race #4."
