Charlotte Friday recap

JR McNeil got his first ever Monster Jam win tonight in Charlotte!! JR beat the brand new truck, Xtermigator, around the race track, besting those in front of him and putting tremendous pressure on the teams behind him. In the end the rest of the best were unable to usurp JR's run. It was the huge air and fast pace of the Xtermigator that lead to the win.
Young Gun Steve Thompson, in Hurricane Force, had a tremendous evening, tying for 3rd in Wheelies, going to the Championship Round of Racing, and then was 3rd overall in Freestyle. Just more fuel for the fire on my prediction that Steve could be the Monster Jam Rookie Of The Year!!! Joey Parnell had a chance at the double down, winning racing, but still came away with 2 trips to victory lane winning racing and the wheelie contest.

Saturday 2PM

It was a soggy day in Charlotte at the Time Warner Cable Arena. This did not stop the Monster Jam Fans from poring into the venue to attend the afternoon show. Things started out with the Monster Jam Wheelie contest. The first monster Jam Truck to the line was Prowler. He started the day off with a score of 16. The next Truck was Ice Cream Man. He was able to take over the number one spot by one point scoring a 17. Hurricane Force was a force to be reckoned with. He put the truck in the air going vertical and launching across the entire stack of crush cars. Putting up a score of 22 he was not able to be taken down and went home the wheelie champion.

Fox Sports 1 Freestyle was the highlight of the days event. Only able to put up a 11 for the Ice Cream Man, it was not to difficult for the next Monster Jam Truck Prowler to set the bar. Scoring a 20 he was able to stay on top of the leader board until it was time for Xtermigator. Scoring a 23 it seemed like he was the man to beat. But there were two trucks left. The Man of Steel got some major air and was able to squeak by with a 24. That left the Mean green wrecking machine to do some damage. After whipping out some donuts and catching major air on several jumps, Grave digger came out victorious.
