EVENT NOTES

Sunday afternoon’s competition heated up as our athletes not only for event champion, but for series points.  Max-D had plenty of support this weekend, as his young son was watching his dad perform for the first time ever!  Even though EarthShaker took the first win in Racing, Max-D fired back and took wins in ATV Racing and 2 Wheel Skills!  Alien Invasion took his first win in Donuts and performed consistently, putting himself among the top competitors of the event!  Max-D then took his first Speedster win and it all came down to Freestyle as to who would win the Overall Event Championship.  With a fire in his eye and his foot on the gas, Max-D put on a show-stopping performance in Freestyle that cinched his place as Overall Event Champion.  This is his first Overall Event Championship not only for this season but in the Triple Threat Series.  The race is on towards World Finals 20 in Orlando!

EVENT NOTES

On Saturday evening at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, crowds immediately fell in love with Earth Shaker’s Tristan England, as there was a special pre-event gender reveal of his soon to be born son!   Earth Shaker carried that emotional momentum throughout the event, taking wins in Racing, 2-Wheel Skills, Donuts, and Freestyle!  Determined as ever, Max-D stayed close in event points to Earth Shaker throughout the event, and took a win in ATV Racing.  Grave Digger’s Krysten Anderson left her mark on the track Saturday night with her first win in Speedsters for the season.  However, it was Earth Shaker’s power house performance throughout the evening that carried him to Overall Event Champion, putting him as the current season point leader.

EVENT NOTES

The first event of Triple Threat Series East started with a bang on Saturday Afternoon!  A very exciting racing competition kicked off the night with a rare occurence in Monster Jam, with the two simultaneous roll overs of Megalodon and Max-D in the final bracket of round 1!  The racing concluded with Grave Digger victorious.  ATV racing kept fans on the edge of their seats as Max-D rocketed to claim the victory!  In 2-Wheel Skills, Earth Shaker brought the crowd to it’s feet with his showstopping performance, garnering himself the win in the challenge!  Monster Mutt Dalmatian strutted her stuff in the Donut Competition and chased her tail to victory.  Alien Invasion’s Bernard Lyght finally garnered his first victory of the day after competing in a rough and tumble Speedster Obstacle Course.  Finally, it was Grave Digger’s Krysten Anderson who conquered Freestyle, and narrowly secured her Overall Event Championship for the first show of the Triple Threat Series.  This group of athletes proves to be a formidable threat on the way to World Finals 20 in Orlando, Florida!
