Monster Energy Cup Las Vegas

This was the first year I was able to go to The Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas at the Sam Boyd Stadium. This is a very special race because there is a 1 Million dollar purse on the race! The only way to win the Million dollars is to win all 3 of the races that happen through out the night. Ryan Villopotto is the only person to every get the "Monster Million" and that was the first year the race was held. Going into the race this year was interesting because Villopotto wouldnt be racing. There was tons of energy in the stadium especially after Trey Canard won the first two races. In the last race Trey was in the second place just behind Davi Millsaps. It was looking good for Canard to win the Million but coming through one of the back sweepers into the stadium Canards rear tire snagged a Tuff Block and put him down on the ground. Sadly his race for the Million was over and Davi Millsaps took the over all win. Although he didn't get the "Monster Million", Davi still went home with a crisp Hundred Grand in his pocket for the overall win. Congrats Davi!
