Saturday Night

It was a capacity crowd that included Kenny Rogers as the Monster Jam FOX Sports 1 Championship Series hit week two at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Lucas Oil Crusader and Linsey Weenk proved that he wants to be at the Monster Jam World Finals℠ XVI in Las Vegas by doubling down and jumping into the series lead.

Damon Bradshaw and Monster Energy was the fastest qualifier of the night earning 1 point. Bari Mussawir and Zombie clocked the fastest time in the obstacle course earning 1 point. And in the racing final, Lucas Oil Crusader shut down Max-D, giving Lucas Oil Crusader 2 points.

The Monster Jam Freestyle competition had massive air, crazy cyclones, and the save of the night by Lucas Oil Crusader. When the dust finally settled and all 16 Monster Jam trucks had run, it was Weenk and Lucas Oil Crusader emerging victorious, earning the double down, and the lead of the Monster Jam FOX Sports 1 Championship Series.

“Week one in Houston wasn’t the best, so I had to turn it around and turn it up for these Atlanta fans” said Lucas Oil Crusader Driver, Linsey Weenk. “I want a Monster Jam World Finals Championship, and I want to see all of you there!”

On the line for the 16 Monster Jam trucks at the end of the 9-city Monster Jam FOX Sports 1 Championship Series are four automatic bids to Monster Jam World Finals XVI at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on March 26-28, and the first ever series championship.
