Monster Energy is excited to bring the inaugural 2017 Duels competition, a head-to-head truck racing event that brings together the best off-road and short course truck racers in the world. The Duels will take place on October 14 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas during the Monster Energy Cup, and will also feature the Dirt Shark Biggest Whip contest featuring the world’s best whip athletes on a dirt bike, as well as Monster Energy’s European Drift Champion Steve “Baggsy” Biagioni doing drift demos.
“I am super stoked to have the opportunity to head to Las Vegas to not only see and experience the Monster Energy Cup live, but to be putting on a smoke show in my #LSXR35 for all the fans,” said Biagioni. I can’t wait to show everyone the R35 in real life and hopefully get the crowds hyped up with its fire breathing Chevy V8 engine.
As for the #LSXR35, it is the world’s first – boosting 1200 horsepower and trophies from the British Drift Championship and the Kind of Kings European Championship.
Over the years the Monster Energy Cup has activated the pit party in the parking lot with smoke shows by the Unknowns and Monster Energy athletes such as Ken Block, Liam Doran, Casey Currie, BJ Baldwin, and Kyle LuDuc to name a few. Pit parties have also included Bellator MMA fights, BMX contests featuring the best BMX riders in the world, the FMX High Rollers contest debuting the first-ever quarterpipe competition last year, and concerts. For this year the evolution of thrilling events continues with the Duels hosted by Kenny Bell and off-road racer Cameron Steele.
