EVENT NOTES

 

On a warm and sunny afternoon in Albuquerque, the pendulum swung back in the favor of Camden Murphy and Pirate’s Curse. Camden was able to bookend the weekend with Overall Event Championships, after also winning on Friday evening. Camden Murphy’s racing background was on full display whether he was behind the wheel of the Pirate’s Curse Monster Jam Truck, Speedster or ATV. He took wins in those first two competitions, while finishing in third place in the latter, despite starting the ATV Racing Final in the sixth position. Pirate’s Curse also finished in second place in the Two-Wheel Skills Challenge, with a very impressive score of 9.165 — which on most other days, should be good enough to win. However, the show was capped by an exciting Freestyle performance at the hands of Cynthia Gauthier and Monster Mutt Dalmation. Highlighted by a show-stopping save, Monster Mutt Dalmation took the victory and totaled a whopping 9.704 points. It’s worth noting that this is the first time that someone other than EarthShaker, El Toro Loco or Grave Digger has won a Freestyle competition on the Triple Threat Series West.

EVENT NOTES

 

EarthShaker and Tristan England made it two-for-two on Saturday in Albuquerque. Tristan was able to take wins in the Two-Wheel Skills Challenge, ATV Racing competition and the Speedster Obstacle Course, in addition to a second place finish in Freestyle. This latest Overall Event Championship also vaulted EarthShaker into rarified air, as Tristan England became the first athlete on the Triple Threat Series West Tour to go over 800 points for the season.

EVENT NOTES

 

After a drought of two weeks, EarthShaker and Tristan England found themselves back on top on Saturday afternoon at the Tingley Coliseum. Tristan started off the day strong with back-to-back wins in Monster Jam Racing and the Two-Wheel Skills Challenge. However, the other athletes refused to go down without an fight, as ATV Racing, Monster Jam Donuts and the Speedster Obstacle Course were all won by different competitors. Which meant that once again, the Overall Event Championship would be decided by the Freestyle competition. Entering the last event of the day, EarthShaker was tied with El Toro Loco’s Armando Castro, each with 31 points. While El Toro Loco had a solid run, ultimately finishing in 4th place with 7.962, it was EarthShaker’s show-stopping run that earned him a 9.308, the Freestyle win and another Overall Event Championship.

EVENT NOTES

 

After a strong weekend in Denver, with three of four Overall Event Championships, Camden Murphy led Pirate’s Curse to the first win here in Albuquerque. Camden’s racing background proved to be beneficial, as he won yet another Monster Jam Racing competition to kick off the night. He followed that up with a bit of an upset victory in the Two-Wheel Skills Challenge. Pirate’s Curse had an impressive and deserving run, however that competition has belonged to EarthShaker and Tristan England essentially all season long. Camden also had a strong showing in the second half of the show, with second place finishes in Donuts and the Speedster Obstacle Course, followed by a third place finish in Freestyle. Speaking of Freestyle, Krysten Anderson had not one, but two exciting saves, and finished with a score of 9.373 to earn Grave Digger another win.
