Lake Erie Speedway was packed tonight!! Our Erie Monster Jam fans rocked the house. With a world class lineup of Monster Jam Trucks and drivers it would be a Friday night to remember. The drive for each Monster Jam driver to win tonight was clearly matched with our Monster Jam fans hunger for a great show. The temperature was cool and the rain went away midday, setting the stage for a killer night of Monster Jam action beside the lake!! Gary Porter, celebrating the 30th anniversary of Carolina Crusher, had a great night taking three of the five trophies and his good friend Randy Brown in Grave Digger snagged the remaining two trophies.

The two time World Champion and reigning Monster Jam Freestyle World Champion was in the house. Mike Vaters II, as you will recall, also was the won the 2014 Young Guns Shoot out Championship.

Wheelies got us going tonight. 6 of the 7 Monsters reported. Monster Mutt had an issue firing and was likely electrical. The good news is Monster Mutt was repaired and back in action for the rest of the night!
