La Plata – Monster Jam® made its first appearance in Argentina, greeted by a sold out opening night and near capacity crowd for the finale. Charlie Pauken (Grave Digger®) managed to score the overall event titles, but not without a fight from a spirited group of Monster Jam drivers. Neil Elliott (Max-D™) brought the crowd to its feet with a Freestyle backflip. Coty Saucier (Monster Energy®) captured a Freestyle victory and Mark List (El Toro Loco®) took home a decisive Wheelie win.
Reno – A busy four-show weekend gave Monster Jam competitors plenty of opportunity to find their winning ways. Steven Sims (Mutant™) was a three-time winner in Freestyle, which helped get the newest Monster Jam truck to a pair of event championships. Becky McDonough (El Toro Loco) was the queen of Wheelie competition with three victories, adding a Donut title and a Freestyle win to the mix. Pablo Huffaker (Grave Digger) was strong in Racing and Donuts, picking up an overall event win as well. Darren Migues (Nitro Menace) opened the weekend with a Racing win.
Monster Jam has a rare off-weekend before heading to the next event in Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 27-28.
