Rude Awakening

Rude Awakening entered the 2018 Tournament of Destruction mid-season at Round 3, replacing Iron Brigade. The revamped driver line-up was worthy of the team name’s storied past and delivered several wild and heavy-hitting performances. The major players of Rude Awakening now reside on Mean Green Machine for the 2019 season.
