I will post updates for day two.

The overall winner could earn a spot at WSM, so there is a lot on the line (Travis has already qualified based on his placing last year).

Thanks for the update. I can't imagine all that out side in the heat. Strongman is crazy.

Yes, and an At Large Nutrition sponsored athlete.

Congrats Scott on the new record, I knew you can do it. Especially when I saw you axle press 400x3 like it was nothing.

Thank you everyone and especially Chris and AtLarge for all of the great products. It was a great comp with a lot of great fans. I hope some vids of the keg toss make it online. I know the axle vid is on youtube.

Tom, thanks for the update. I am hoping to make it to be a spectator in North Carolina next month. It would be great for an American to win it on home soil.

Good Luck Guys
