With one more stop left to go in the Damn Am series this year, the standouts are starting to take shape. It's more and more obvious who the contenders for Damn Am of the Year will be, and one of them just happened to place first at Woodward West this weekend. Maurio McCoy laid down an incredible run and wowed the judges with his buttery style, delivering him the win. Congrats Maurio and everyone else who killed it out here!
