Mike Hawkins’ Equalizer and Isaiah Morales in Hot Tamale made the trip to Bossier City with one goal in mind-Thrill the fans at the Centurytel Center! It was mission accomplished on that, even though the trucks were a little worse for wear afterwards. On Friday night, Mike Hawkins gave another great effort to try and make it two backflips in two weeks:

After this attempt, Equalizer was damaged enough to miss Saturday’s show, but Isaiah Morales stepped up to the plate in Hot Tamale and completed the backflip on Saturday with a rough landing, proving that what Hawkins called “the Mike and Ike show” is ready to roll in 2011:

“The ramp for the backflip wasn’t quite the way we wanted it, but we know what we need for the final Monster Nation stop in Beaumont, Texas,” said Hawkins. “Monster Nation puts on a great show, and we like doing that, too!”

The Equalizer/Hot Tamale team has a week off, then it’s on to the Roanoke Civic Center for the Roanoke Monster Jam. Stay tuned!
