Authored by Larry Jewett on May 10, 2019
Colton Eichelberger (Max-DTM) sits on top of the Speedster Racing point standings after an opening round win. The Friday morning action saw a good crowd on hand to watch the historic debut of the competition, which is held as part of the Pit Party at Monster Jam World Finals XX at Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
Eichelberger was the top seed coming into the competition and dispatched Bernard Lyght (Alien Invasion) in his first round. The semi-final match-up put Eichelberger up against Armando Castro (El Toro Loco) and the finals was a match-up with Eichelberger and Tyler Menninga (Grave Digger).
The points earned by the competitors today will be added to the results of tomorrow’s 11:30 am round of action. The competitor with the highest point total will be the first Speedster Racing World Champion. In the event of a tie in total points, the highest Saturday finisher will be considered the tiebreaker.
