EVENT NOTES

History was made on Saturday night in Sioux Falls. David Olfert of Bounty Hunter captured his first career Overall Event Championship. David made it to the Semi-Finals of Monster Jam Racing before finishing in second place in the 2 Wheel Skills Challenge. He had the lead in Freestyle for most of the competition, until Grave Digger’s Randy Brown capped the night with a very impressive run in his own right. What better way to celebrate his first time driving Bounty Hunter than with his first ever championship, congrats David!
