Stadium Championship Series 1

The series moved south to the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, Mississippi, bringing three competitors who have added Monster Jam World Finals XIX to their schedule. Each driver picked up Event Championships as Series Champion Neil Elliott (Max-D™), Adam Anderson (Grave Digger®) and Todd LeDuc (Mutant™) shared the spotlight. Anderson captured all three Freestyles while Bryce Kenny (Great Clips Mohawk Warrior™) was fastest in two Racing competitions. (Results) (Points)

The series journeyed to Canada to pay a visit to Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver, British Columbia. Tom Meents (Max-D) opened the weekend right by sweeping Monster Jam truck events. His efforts spurred Charlie Pauken (Grave Digger) who took over, winning the two remaining Event Championships. Candice Jolly (Monster Mutt® Dalmatian) was the best in Saturday Racing and picked up her first Event Championship on Saturday afternoon. (Results) (Points)

Stadium Championship Series 3

Fans in St. Louis flocked to The Dome at America’s Center to see two action-packed Monster Jam events. Morgan Kane (Grave Digger) padded his points lead by winning the Racing and Freestyle portion of Saturday night’s event, but was denied a sweep by Marc McDonald (FS1 Cleatus™), who was best in Two-Wheel Skills.  On Sunday, two second place finishes propelled Coty Saucier (Mutant) to an Event Championship. Becky McDonough (El Toro Loco®) stopped Saucier in Racing. Linsey Weenk (Lucas Oil Crusader™) picked up his first Stadium Freestyle win of the season. (Results) (Points)

Stadium Championship Series 4

The final two shows of the series would take the points race right down to the wire at UTEP Stadium in El Paso, Texas. A rough weekend of Racing could not derail point leader Lee O’Donnell (VP Mad Scientist™). O’Donnell lost twice to the hard-charging Ryan Anderson (Son-uva Digger®), but when points were tallied, O’Donnell won by 11. O’Donnell dominated Two-Wheel Skills, winning both days and adding a second in Freestyle to boot. (Results) (Points)

Triple Threat Series Central

Six big shows gave Monster Jam Triple Threat Series Central athletes the spotlight at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. Tyler Menninga (Grave Digger) opened with a dominant run on Friday, which saw the series point leader get 47 of a possible 48 points. On Saturday, Colton Eichelberger (Max-D) took over, winning both event championships. Menninga got back to his winning ways on Sunday afternoon, but the evening performance allowed Kayla Blood (El Toro Loco) to leave her mark on the field, boosted by Racing and Donut wins. (The final show is scheduled for 7 p local time Monday, March 5 – Results to come) (Results) (Points)

Triple Threat Series West

Tristan England (EarthShaker®) is playing a game of “catch me if you can” and Camden Murphy (Pirate’s Curse™) is doing a good job at playing along. Murphy dominated the Friday event and the hunter and the hunted engaged in close competition throughout the weekend. Murphy won Racing on Friday and Saturday, but was upset by Bernard Lyght (Alien Invasion™) in the final show to lose valuable points. Cynthia Gauthier (Monster Mutt Dalmatian) captured the final Event Championship of the weekend. (Results) (Points)

Arena Championship Series

The difference is one point as the series wrapped up business in Tupelo, Mississippi on the Road to Monster Jam World Finals XIX. Pablo Huffaker (Grave Digger) holds that slight advantage on Cam McQueen (Northern Nightmare®). Grave Digger was held out of Event Championships as Northern Nightmare took two and Linsey Read (Scooby-Doo) started the weekend with a decisive win. Grave Digger dominated Donuts to keep the points tight with two weeks of competition remaining. (Results) (Points)
