Friday 7:30pm.

Tonight was a great start to three Monster Jam® shows scheduled here in beautiful Sun Rise Florida. This is also the final Florida stop of the 2015 season for Monster Jam.

The action started off quick as Grave Digger scored a 35 in wheelies to take home the first trophy of the night. He might have taken the win but it was costly as the left rear tire sheered off on his second wheelie attempt which would put him out of the Obstacle and Hole Shot competitions. From there it was all Zombie as he was the fastest in the Obstacle Corse challenge and Hole Shot Racing. Sean Duhon was six tenths faster than Monster Energy in the obstacle course and defeated El Toro Loco in the Championship Round race.

Three competitions down and two more to go El Toro Loco spun his way to a Donut trophy with a high score of 37 over Grave Digger by one Point. It would be Grave Digger doing the same to Madusa in the freestyle competition by defeating her by one point with a high score of 31 here are tonight's results.

Saturday 7:30pm

The road to the Monster Jam World Finals® XVII continued tonight at the BB&T center to a full house of excited Monster Jam® Fans. The night started off with some awesome wheelies that led to Grave Digger taking home his third wheelie trophy for the weekend. Pablo scored a 36 beating second place finisher Monster Energy by four points. From there we went right into the Obstacle Course Challenge and Grave Digger® left of were he started this afternoon. He would win with a fast time of 15.105 seconds giving Monster Energy a second place finish with a time of 15.677.

The next contest was side by side racing as Monster Energy takes the Championship round race by beating Monster Mutt® Dalmatian but at a cost. When the green light came on Monster Energy was hard on the throttle and in mid air the engine blew up as a ball of fire erupted but was enough to take the win but was also out for the rest of the night.

The last two contest went to Grave Digger as he scored a high 36 in Donuts and a 34 in freestyle almost making it a sweep. The fans were on their feet for the Black and Green Wrecking as Pablo promised to be back for next years Monster Jam.

Saturday 2:00 pm

Very muggy and hot here in South Florida but inside the BB&T Center it was nice and cool for the near capacity crowd of screaming Monster Jam® Fans. The day started off with the Party in the pits where the fans packed the arena floor to get close to their favorite Monster Jam Trucks. After the Pity Party, emptied the stands filled up in anticipation of today's event.

As we kicked off the afternoon show again with five competitions that highlighted two roll overs in wheelies just to start the action and only got bigger and better from there. Grave Digger® would take a blistering time in the Obstacle Course by 4 seconds over second place finisher Zombie which is unheard of and Monster Mutt Dalmatian® comes back as fast looser in racing to defeat Grave Digger in the finals by inches. With Donuts and Freestyle still to come it was Grave Digger who wowed the crowd with both victories adding to his trophy collection.
