Friday Night

The Monster Jam evening in Richmond VA at the Coliseum was full of fantastic performances, one driver grabbing three events and a first time winner! The wheelie competition got us started and Stone Crusher posted a 21, Hooked with a 20, El Toro Loco a 22, Monster Mutt's 23, but no one could touch Advance Auto Parts Grinder's wheelie with a 24 as Grave Digger couldn't fire.

Saturday 2 PM

The afternoon show at the Richmond VA Coliseum was packed with Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam fans ready for a Thunder Nationals showpiece. The pre-show entertainment with Drummer vs Emulator was absolutely futuristic and the crowd ate it up with all of their touch screen effects! The wheelie competition started us out with Stone Crusher's 20, Hooked at a 21 and then El Toro Loco threw down with sky wheelies and she garnered a 27! The next three scores 22, 20, and 21 from Monster Mutt, Advance Auto Parts Grinder and Grave Digger couldn't get it done.
