EVENT NOTES

The kickoff of Stadium Tour 1 was everything our fans knew it would be: EPIC! And it started with Round 1 of Racing when Grave Digger edged out Mutant. The Monster Jam athletes pushed their trucks to the extreme with a few rollovers and some wild rides! In the Semi-Finals of Racing, the Great Clips Mohawk Warrior was destroyed after edging out Grave Digger. Then, Max-D broke after beating Megalodon who didn’t finish the race!  So, in our Final round of Racing it was the legend Grave Digger with Adam Anderson at the wheel against the fastest loser from Round 2, which was the all-new Whiplash piloted by Brianna Mahon that debuted earlier in the night! In the end, it was Grave Digger and Adam Anderson who came out with the Racing win!

Then, in the Two-Wheel Skills Challenge, Adam Anderson did an awesome backwards wheelie that led him to another competition win!

On to the Freestyle competition, the moment of the night came from Jim Koehler in Avenger. He blew out a BKT tire, and just when it looked like he was going to bust out some cyclones, he hit the Mutant backflip ramp and did a twist in the air! Angel Stadium went NUTS!

While Jim Koehler went on to win the Freestyle competition, Adam Anderson had two competition wins and a 2nd place finish in Freestyle in the bag, enough for him to be the first Event Champion of Anaheim this season!

This night in Anaheim was an epic one indeed, with the debuts of both Whiplash and Grave Digger XXXV as well as a return to the 1957 Bel Air body for Avenger!
