Event Recap

Philly! The cheese steaks, THE CHEESECAKE, and the phenomenal Monster Jam action! And of course, there was a twist at the end of Stadium Championship Series 2. In the city of brotherly love, Ryan Anderson stopped out to fill in for big brother Adam Anderson for his first time EVER in Grave Digger… and he didn’t disappoint. The final round saw Max-D and Grave Digger in Racing! And it was awesome. Grave Digger would inch out Max-D for the win. And Grave Digger would grow the points lead on the season by 5 at this point. But then Max-D rocked in the 2-Wheel Skills Challenge, taking his 22nd win of his career. Grave Digger had a great bicycle-to-moonwalk for his first hit, but didn’t connect on the second hit, which put Max-D in the lead for the Event Championship and brought Grave Digger’s lead to 3 points for the season. So, it came down to the final competition of the year… Freestyle. Max-D would go early in the night and suffered a transmission issue 40 seconds into his run and stopped the truck in its tracks. A dejected Neil Elliott thanked the fans for the support and mentioned he is looking forward to competing in the 2-Wheel Skills Challenge in Orlando.  Grave Digger would bring down the house during his freestyle and took the win. Grave Digger would take the event championship AND the Series!

Congratulations to Adam Anderson and team Grave Digger! He is now chasing his sixth Monster Jam World Finals Championship and is looking forward to defending his racing championship May 10th and 11th!
