This one’s for Shawn “Barney” Barron.
Barney was on the first ever Drive-Thru and was an interesting individual. He invented his own maneuvers. And wore custom wetsuits designed to look like superhero outfits. And gifted his friends paintings he’d done depicting them in jail — that kind of fascinating.
He tragically passed away in 2015. This episode of the Drive Thru is in memory of Barney, as we watch the crew do all things Santa Cruz in his honor.
Donavon experiences firsthand why the leash was invented in that very town, Griffin wins the heat, Benji does a gainer off the cliff at Steamer Lane and gives everyone a dinnertime surprise, Anthony Ruffo shares intimate tales of Barney, they (temporarily) run out of beer, and Dane has a flashback to every heat he’s ever lost at Steamer Lane.
“I can’t believe we got Dane Reynolds to do a Drive-Thru,” says Benji at some point.
