Authored by Larry Jewett on September 11, 2023


Parity prevailed as Monster Jam returned to Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia as three different competitors were able to score event championships on the weekend.


Zack Garner (Wild Side) opened the action with his sixth overall event championship coming in the Saturday afternoon action. Tony Ochs (ThunderROARus) added his fifth of 2023 in the Saturday evening competition and Krysten Anderson (Grave Digger) captured the Sunday matinee.



Ochs was unbeaten in the Skills competition over the weekend, but no one else was able to pull off a sweep. Garner picked up two Racing wins as Monster Jam rookie Manuel Solorio won racing in just his third career event on Sunday. Three different competitors brought home wins in the Donut competition with Anderson, Nick Pagliarulo (Kraken) and Jamie Sullivan (Monster Mutt Dalmatian) taking wins. Ochs notched a pair of Freestyles with Anderson capturing the other.
