Colton Eichelberger and Grave Digger® came into the weekend with one thing in mind... winning, and he did just that, sweeping all three overall events. This is the first time this has been achieved ever in #MoreMonsterJam.

Eichelberger's success continued into Saturday afternoon. An impressive performance won him overall event champion once again. Grave Digger won the wheelie competition, the Monster Jam obstacle course, and the donut competition. However, it was Max-D℠ who would take the freestyle win.
