EVENT NOTES

The brooms were out in Cincinnati as Brandon Vinson and Grave Digger was able to complete the three-event sweep on Sunday afternoon. Although he was only able to win two competitions — Monster Jam Racing and the 2-Wheel Skills Challenge — he was able to remain consistent enough to stockpile 39 total points and his third Overall Event Championship of the weekend. With one weekend remaining in the points battle, Grave Digger is 104 points ahead of second place and can clinch the Series win as early as next Saturday in Columbus.

EVENT NOTES

Saturday evening unfolded similarly to Saturday afternoon, but the roles were reversed. This time it was Mark List and El Toro Loco that went on a mid-event run of competition wins. He took ATV Racing, the 2-Wheel Skills Challenge and Donuts before giving way to Grave Digger’s Brandon Vinson who captured the Speedster Obstacle Course and Freestyle victories. The difference was, Brandon managed to finish in second place in most of the competitions he didn’t win, which allowed Grave Digger to total 41 points and earn his second Overall Event Championship of the day.

EVENT NOTES

Saturday afternoon in Cincinnati was an action-packed event from start to finish. Out of the gate, Coty Saucier and Monster Energy took the Timed Racing win. Up next Grave Digger came from behind to take the ATV Racing competition. It would be Brandon Vinson’s first of three wins in a row, as he went on to capture both the 2-Wheels Skills Challenge and Donuts. Although Mark List of El Toro Loco was able to win the final two competitions, it was too little, too late as Grave Digger had built enough of a lead to earn the Overall Event Championship.
