Monster Jam® featuring the AMSOIL Series in Salt Lake City was a weekend full of competition between the athletes. The battle for the coveted Monster Jam World Finals XVII spot is between Morgan Kane, Colton Eichelberger, and Young Guns Shootout Champion, Coty Saucier.. Between Friday and Saturday, 20 of the 24 possible points were snagged by Team Grave Digger®, Team Max-D™ and Team Monster Energy®.
On Friday night, Kane scored a total of 4.5 points, with wins in Monster Jam Racing, Wheelies, ATV heats, and Freestyle. Coming out of intermission, Team Grave Digger held the lead by only one point, but after earning two points in the second half from Freestyle, they ended up on top for the night.
On Saturday afternoon, Team Monster Energy could not be beat. Saucier snagged the points for Monster Jam Racing, Speedster Racing, and Wheelies. These wins accounted for 75% of the available points in the first half. In the second half, he didn’t score in Donuts, but earned two more points in Freestyle for a total of five points, clinching the title of overall event champion for the weekend. This is Coty’s first overall event win for the series.
During the last competition in Salt Lake City, Morgan Kane hit the track with a vengeance. Kane edged out Saucier by just one point, taking the win in both the Wheelies and Freestyle competition to end up on top. Team Monster Energy held the lead in the first half and accumulated two points, but not enough to beat Team Grave Digger.
