Recap: After taking the trophy on Saturday night, Brandon Vinson was able to double down on Overall Event Championships on Sunday in Portland. After losing in a replay-assisted photo finish to El Toro Loco in the semis of Monster Jam Racing, Grave Digger shocked Tony Ochs of Solider Fortune Black Ops with a last second pass to win ATV Racing. Brandon nailed one of his two attempts in 2 Wheel Skills, which was enough to give him a third place finish heading into intermission. After the break, he was just as successful, winning the Speedster Obstacle Course and finishing in second place in Freestyle.

Recap: After coming up short during the afternoon’s event, Brandon Vinson of Grave Digger more than made up for it in the nightcap. He managed to win ATV Racing, while finishing in second place in both 2 Wheel Skills and Freestyle. All of that was enough to give Grave Digger the Overall Event Championship and give Brandon a solid 55 point lead in the series standings.

Recap: Off the strength of two competition wins, Tristan England of EarthShaker continued the run he’s been on of late. After taking two Overall Event Championships last weekend in Spokane, he opened up this weekend with more of the same. He also earned his 19th 2 Wheel Skills win of the season, as he has his sights set on returning to Monster Jam World Finals in that discipline as well. We’ll see if he can continue to close the gap between himself and Grave Digger for the series points lead later tonight.
