RECAP: The first event of the Triple Threat Series Central season blasted off in Nashville at the Bridgestone Arena. Blue Thunder’s Matt Cody proved why he is a Monster Jam World Finals Champion when he opened the season with an immediate Racing win. After winning two Overall Event Championships in Brazil, Mark List in El Toro Loco came out strong winning ATV Racing. Grave Digger’s Krysten Anderson was the only athlete to find traction in the tacky Nashville soil, taking home a great Donut win. In the Speedster Obstacle Course finals, Max-D’s Colton Eichelberger won when going head to head against two-time series champion, Justin Sipes in Megalodon. This loss did not deter Megalodon, as he walked away with two competition wins in 2 Wheel Skills and Freestyle. In the end, the competition was so fierce that the athletes found themselves with a three-way tie between Megalodon, El Toro Loco, and Blue Thunder! Since Megalodon received the highest score in Freestyle, that ultimately gave him the first Overall Event Championship win of the season!
