Neil Elliott and Max D Make History Winning the First Ever Monster Jam FOX Sports 1 Championship Series

Syracuse, NY (March 7, 2015) – The Monster Jam Fox Sports 1 Championship Series came to a close at the Carrier Dome with insane action and made history crowning the first ever Monster Jam Fox Sports 1 Series Champion Max D. Monster Energy, Monster Mutt, and Grave Digger were also given births into the Monster Jam World Finals XVI in Las Vegas.

Charlie Pauken was on fire in Grave Digger, starting the night off being fast qualifier. Max D got the point needed to take the series lead by running the fastest time in the Monster Jam Obstacle Course. The surprise of the night came from Bari Musawwir and Zombie, who has won 5 obstacle course races, defeating Lucas Oil Crusader in the final round of Monster Jam Racing.

In one of the most exciting freestyle competitions, it was Grave Digger who blew off the roof at the Carrier Dome, winning freestyle, clinching forth in the series and the final invite to the Monster Jam World Finals.

“It’s been a wild ride, but it feels great to be the first ever Monster Jam Fox Sports 1 Series Champion,” said Neil Elliott. “It was a rough start to the series, but my crew kept fine tuning the truck, and in the end we came out on top. I can’t wait to compete in the Monster Jam World Finals XVI!”

The Titan ATV was also crowned the first ever Monster Jam Fox Sports 1 Series ATV Champion after winning the main.

Now that the Monster Jam FOX Sports 1 Championship Series is over, we move on to Monster Jam World FinalsSM XVI at Las Vegas’ Sam Boyd Stadium on March 26-28.
