Yours truly had the chance to get back out on the road last weekend and host the Monster Jam live events at the XL Center in Hartford. It was my first time out of the broadcast booth since I filled in last year in Hamilton, Ontario, and while I had to knock the rust off early, there was one driver who had zero rust and looked dominant, and his name is Blake Granger.

 

If you aren’t familiar with Blake’s career, he was an accomplished ATV racer, which ultimately led to him winning the 2019 Monster Jam World Finals ATV Racing Championship. He excelled on the Triple Threat Series and last year shined on the International Series, with 11 Skills wins and 7 Overall Event Championships.

 

The Lafayette, Louisiana native checks in at number nine on the latest Monster Jam Power Rankings, rising four sports after winning four out of his last six events in Costa Rica and Connecticut. Traveling between continents seems to have little effect on the Max-D driver as he continues to excel in each competition. While in Hartford, Granger was the only driver to win all four competitions throughout the weekend and finished one point shy of a perfect event on Sunday.

 

Next up for the former World Finals Champion is a trip across the pond to conquer the “Monstergon” as Monster Jam – Ramped Up makes its highly anticipated debut in Birmingham, England. In the UK, Blake will drive El Toro Loco but, whether it’s Max-D or “The Crazy Bull,” rest assure Blake Granger will continue to win on every level and on every continent.

 

You can keep up with Blake and the other talented superstars competing overseas on the International Series at MonsterJam.com.

 

*Writers Note* – Hartford was an absolute blast and my FLEX CAM intro had zero rust whatsoever. I hope to be back out on the road soon!
