Stadium Championship Series Yellow

Camden Murphy (Bakugan Dragonoid™) ran his Racing win streak to 15 consecutive round wins as he swept through the two days in El Paso without a defeat. Murphy needed the fastest time of the night on Saturday to beat Coty Saucier (Monster Energy®) by .065 seconds. On Sunday, Murphy dispatched Charlie Pauken (Grave Digger®) in the last round to complete the sweep. While Murphy was winning the battles, Pauken was winning the war as Grave Digger has moved into the series points lead, but it’s close. The margin is only a single point and that will remain until the next event April 4 in Seattle. Murphy and Tom Meents (Max-D™ Fire) won Skills Competitions. Meents and Pauken were Freestyle winners with Event Championships going to Pauken and Murphy.

Points leader Tyler Menninga (Grave Digger) seized the opportunity to clinch the Event Championship on Saturday night, which gave him his fourth consecutive season championship. Menninga added the Sunday Event Championship and his 22nd Racing title on Sunday for good measure. Kayla Blood (Soldier Fortune™) swept the Donut competition. Blake Granger (Max-D) was unbeaten in 2 Wheel Skills and Freestyle.
