O'Donnell Joins World Finals Field
Authored by Admin on March 5, 2018
The defending World Freestyle Champion Lee O’Donnell (VP Mad Scientist™) has secured his bid to return for the Monster Jam World Finals XIX on March 23-24 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. O’Donnell earned the right by claiming the top spot in the Stadium Championship Series 4.
O’Donnell took the point lead when the series left Toronto on the first weekend of competition and was never passed. In 2018, O’Donnell dominated Two-Wheel Skills, claiming seven victories, which gave him the bulk of his points. O’Donnell used consistent performances, finishing second in Freestyle five times and making the Racing finals on three occasions.
The bid marks O’Donnell’s ninth consecutive appearance and second in the VP Racing Fuels Mad Scientist. His 2017 effort that earned his only World Championship was punctuated by the first front flip recorded in a Monster Jam competition.
O’Donnell becomes the third Stadium Championship Series winner to secure a bid in 2018, joining Neil Elliott and Charlie Pauken. Four more championships will be decided this weekend in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Providence and Fresno.
