EVENT NOTES

While he didn’t win the Overall Event Championship, Saturday afternoon at the Schottenstein Center was all about Grave Digger and Brandon Vinson — who was able to cap off his excellent season by clinching the tour championship and the automatic bid to Monster Jam World Finals 20. It was well-deserved and we wish Brandon the best of luck in Orlando! Our Overall Event Championship went to Soldier Fortune’s Kayla Blood — who was able to take the win with her son in the building.
