Monster Jam Rolled into Greenville tonight! The Bon Secours Wellness Arena was alive with incredible Monster Jam action!!
7 Monster Jam drivers and 7 Monster Jam trucks all had their sights set on victory. The stakes are high as every single competitor knows that every win improves their chances to make the field of 32 for Monster Jam World Finals 16 coming up March 26-28 at Sam Boyd in Las Vegas.

Wheelies were challenging for both Bounty Hunter and Iron Outlaw. Both broke something during the opening salvo this weekend. Iron Outlaw and Bounty Hunter both seemed to have similar issues……. suspension problems. Broken shocks and shock mounts. The new Hybrid track for Greenville certainly showed its toughness tonight. The track would win on a couple of occasions tonight.

Grave Digger would defeat Barbarian. But Devin Jones and Barbarian would return as the fast loser.

In the Semi’s:
Carolina Crusher stopped Barbarian
Grave Digger took out Prowler to advance to the finals.

Championship round racing would see Grave Digger and Randy Brown take the victory in a very close final.

What an awesome way to cap off the weekend here in Greenville, SC. Monster Jam was on fire tonight and our Monster Jam fans had the party of the century.

Every single Monster Jam truck was healthy going into tonight’s show. The only mechanical issue happened with Barbarian. Devin Jones and Barbarian had a rear drive train issue immediately following wheelies which took Barbarian out for the rest of the night.

Wheelies: The wheelie competition netted a three way tie with a score of 25 points. The double tie breaker couldn't break the tie so our Monster Jam tie breaker judge added one bonus point to give Trent Montgomery and Bounty Hunter the wheelie Victory tonight.
