Monster Jam Roars into Summer Action
Authored by Admin on July 13, 2017
The summer months provide a prime opportunity for Monster Jam to make stops at several race tracks in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The July schedule includes three visits that have been bringing Monster Jam fans out for exciting action for many years.
Lebanon Valley Speedway, affectionately known to the locals as “West Leb”, has a long-standing tradition of providing action during the week. This year’s schedule starts on Sunday, July 16 and runs through Wednesday, July 19. Adam Anderson (Grave Digger®) and Neil Elliott (Max-DTM) kept everyone else out of Victory Lane in 2016 and will return in 2017. Anderson won three Racing titles and a pair of Freestyle championships. Elliott claimed two Freestyles and the Tuesday racing program. The 2016 marked the second straight year for the Grave Digger/Max-D domination, sweeping all 2015 events. Linsey Weenk (Lucas Oil CrusaderTM) won two Racing titles in 2014 and heads the list of competitors trying to end the domination.
Monster Jam heads to Connecticut’s Stafford Motor Speedway for three shows, July 22-23. The 2017 lineup includes the return of Gary Porter (Carolina Crusher®), who claimed a Racing win last year. He’ll be joined by 2015 Stafford Racing champion Pablo Huffaker (Grave Digger). Several drivers, including Kayla Blood (El Toro Loco®) and Steven Sims (MutantTM) will make their Stafford debut, adding to the experience for longtime Stafford fans.
The tour turns south to Hagerstown Speedway in Maryland for a three-show weekend with action running July 28-30. Huffaker found victory with two Racing and two Freestyle wins in 2015 at Hagerstown. The 2017 includes Scott Buetow (Team Hot WheelsTM), who recorded a Freestyle win at Hagerstown in 2014, his first outdoor Freestyle championship in the truck. Porter visited Hagerstown in 2016 and earned a spot in two Racing finals.
