Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam rolled into Wheeling West Virginia's WesBanco Arena where Monster Jam fans were ready to cheer on their favorite drivers as they competed in Wheelie, UTI Racing, Donut, and "Service Is Our Best Part" Freestyle Competitions.

The drivers were pushing each other to the edge as they all wanted to score wins for their teams. In the Wheelie competition the drivers were getting all kinds of vertical as the fans cheered them on and wanted more action from their Monster Jam stars. The winner of the Wheelie competition would be Jocelyn Perrin and High Maintenance, the only female driver in the lineup of drivers.

In the UTI Racing competition the fans witnessed some close competition and races that would come down to the driver’s reaction times off the starting line and inches at the finish line. The winner in the UTI Racing main event would be Batman over Monster Mutt with the race coming right down to the finish line between the two drivers. In the donut competition it would be Jocelyn Perrin and High Maintenance taking the win with a near perfect score of 29 out of 30 as the Monster Jam fans let her know how much she earned that score.

With the "Service Is Our Best Part" Freestyle competition ready to hit the floor the fans had the WesBanco Arena rocking. The drivers had 60 seconds to link as many hits, airs, donuts, as possible to get the top score and the win. With all the drivers taking their shot at the course it would once again be Jocelyn Perrin and High Maintenance taking the win and making it 3 out of 4 wins tonight.

A big thanks goes out to all the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam fans we'll see you guys tomorrow at 2pm and 7:30pm. Check out www.MonsterJam.com for all your ticket info.
