Friday night here in Bridgeport saw a mixed bag of results. In wheelies we would have a win from Matt Cody in Black Stallion after edging out Mike Vaters in Monster Mutt Rottweiler.

Donuts saw multiple 30 plus scores, but in the end it was Grave Digger with the win.
Freestyle rounded out the action on the night and it would not disappoint. Grave Digger would sneak past Mike Vaters Jr. for the win in Overkill Evolution.

Saturday afternoon all finished and we saw Rod Schmidt getting Re-acclimated in Grave Digger. First off it was wheelies and Monster Mutt Rottweiler would get the bone with tough competition from Mike Thompson in Crushstation.
Monster Jam Obstacle Course Challenge saw lightening fast times registering from many of the trucks. Jim Tracy in Higher Education as well as Mike Vaters Jr. in Overkill Evolution had fast times only to see them vanish when Rod Schmidt in Grave Digger would take the crown!
Donuts had some drama as well when Overkill Evolution set a score that seemed untouchable. This would last only as long as it took Grave Digger to come full circle and knock out the 2014 Young Guns Shootout champion!
Grave Digger and Rod Schmidt would once again get the freestyle win winning the last three events in a row! Matt Cody in Black Stallion also showed strong all day long but just could not reach that last ring to get the win!

Saturday 7pm

Another Saturday Night in the books and wheelies came so close to seeing Mike Thompson in Crushstation getting his first tour win. It would hold up til Mike Vaters in Overkill Evolution would top him by a single point.
The Obstacle Course Challenge saw Rod Schmidt being to overtake the field and begin his sweep of the evening!
Donuts had Jim Tracy in Higher Education had hold of the pole position only to lose it to Grave Digger in the last round.
Freestyle saw 5 of the 6 Monster Jam Truck compete Overkill Evolution would have his run one upped by the legendary Grave Digger for the win. It is safe to say Rod Schmidt is as comfortable as ever in his old ride. A true professional, gets the job done with humility and grace. But never mistake kindness for weakness, he is a baller!
