Motorsports has its ups and downs, and Monster Truck Racing is no exception. Every one has to pay the price from time to time for being a racer, and even 3 time World Champion Fred Shafer knows that. Anything from electrical, mechanical, physical or weather related problems can affect the trucks. Sometimes its a drivers error, like red lighting, shifting incorrectly or choosing the wrong set of gears. Other times a bad bounce, or a slippery muddy track sends you out of bounds quicker than you can correct the truck. Then there are always those unforseen part failures and rollovers that seem to come at the worst times. Regardless of what the problem was, Fred Shafer learned from his mistakes, made his parts better and stronger so he would be more competitive in the future.
