Hello Fresno!! The weather could not be more perfect as the Path of Destruction rolls through Sunny California this weekend!!
The Monster Jam Trucks and Monster Jam Drivers were all ready for what would be a fun and spectacular night here in Fresno.
On hand for all the action this weekend:
Grave Digger® driven by Pablo Huffaker, El Toro Loco® driven by Aaron Basl, Lucas Oil Crusader® driven by Linsey Weenk, El Diablo℠ driven by JP and Tropical Thunder driven by Mike Pappas!!

The Fresno Fair Grounds are the perfect venue to let the Monsters romp. Big air… big wheelies and awesome Free styles.
Here is how it went down tonight:

Wheelies were a great way to start things off here in Fresno. All the trucks were poised to lay down the perfect wheelie. Pablo and Grave Digger took the win.

Lucas Oil Crusader 34.08 Fast Qualifier
Grave Digger 34.65

On to Monster Jam racing:
Lucas Oil Crusader got the bye run for qualifying fastest. El Diablo took out El Toro Loco and Tropical Thunder had a bit of a misfire at the starting line but would ultimately take Grave Digger out in the first round. Digger returned as the fast loser.

Semifinals racing:
Tropical Thunder moved on to the UTI Championship round by taking out El Diablo and Grave Digger redeemed the early loss but beating Lucas Oil Crusader.

UTI Championship Racing Final:
The Racing Victory would belong to Pablo Huffaker and Grave Digger after a VERY close race with Tropical Thunder.

The Freestyles tonight in Fresno were simply incredible. Lots of highlights in Freestyle…the real defining moment was when Linsey Wink got huge air then followed that with a slap wheelie that he drove literally right out of the arena. WOW!! Lucas Oil Crusader would go on for the freestyle victory.
