Monster Energy Races into the Lead
Authored by Admin on February 21, 2015
Arlington, TX (February 21, 2015) - After a week break, the Monster Jam® Fox Sports 1 Championship Series picked back up for week seven at AT&T Stadium. Monster Energy qualified fastest and won the Monster Jam Racing Championship, moving into the series lead.
Monster Energy already had two racing championship wins here in Arlington, and tonight made it a third by winning over Lucas Oil Crusader®. Monster Energy earned three points tonight with that win and by being the night's fastest qualifier. ZombieSM has found the groove in the Obstacle Course, winning for the 4th time on the series.
After the carnage came to an end, it was Monster Mutt® who edged out Monster Energy for the Monster Jam Freestyle Championship, grabbing two more points and moving into a tie for third with Lucas Oil Crusader.
"It felt good to get the monkey off my back by being fastest qualifier so many times and not winning racing too," said Damon Bradshaw. "My crew made it possible, and I want to put a Monster Jam World FinalsSM Racing Championship next to my Freestyle Championship!"
On the line for the 16 Monster Jam trucks at the end of the 9-city Monster Jam FOX Sports 1 Championship Series are four automatic bids to Monster Jam World Finals XVI at Las Vegas' Sam Boyd Stadium on March 26-28, and the first ever series championship.
