Recap

 

The competition was hot Saturday night in Miami as 14 driver athletes took the track at Marlins Park.  The Black Pearl and Cole Venard won his second consecutive Monster Jam Racing competition after beating out Whiplash by two tenths of a second.  Overkill Evolution had an exceptional showing in the Great Clips 2 Wheel Skills Challenge with a Front Popper that he walked back and forth across the track, which allowed him to take his first career win in the 2 Wheel Skills Challenge.  El Toro Loco and Becky McDonough landed the first backflip of the night early in the Freestyle line up and held onto the lead until the end to capture her second Freestyle win of 2019.  At the end of the night, it was Grave Digger and Charlie Pauken who gained the most points to take home the Overall Event Championship.  The 35 points he gained from this victory allowed him to jump to second in the Series Points just 5 points behind Monster Energy and Todd LeDuc.
