For the second consecutive year, Cole Venard powered Grave Digger to a Series Championship. His 2017 season saw him take the series lead in Sacramento in the third week of competition. His strengths came in the Racing and Freestyle events and his steady performance allowed him to keep Jared Eichelberger and Max-DTM at bay.
