Friday Night

The evening started off in Pittsburgh with an exclusive Boy Scouts Party in the Pits that added to the flavor of the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam and provided an added element of electricity.

Rap Attack set the bar high early in the Monster Jam Wheelie competition but was bested by the efforts of Gary Porter in Grave Digger. Porter would use the momentum from the win to pilot the black and green beast to the UTI Championship round of racing. There he would face a bad fast Frank Krmel in Advance Auto Parts Grinder. Both trucks had been in photo finishes during the night but none as close as the UTI Championship round. After several photo finishes, it was determined that Advance Auto Parts Grinder edged out Grave Digger to take the win.

Racing had fans stoked to see just what kind of excitement would come during Service is our Best Part Freestyle. Sean Duhon made a spectacular run in Zombie that held the lead for the better part of the contest with big air, sweet wheelies and non-stop action. His lead held until Krmel hit the floor in Grinder. Looking to score the Double Down Trophy, Krmel upped the ante scoring high marks with the judges for utilizing the whole course and wowing the fans with his signature big air. Grinder took the lead and only had one bullet to dodge, but that bullet was Black and Green. Porter showed the crowd that he meant business when he hit the floor for two big air hits then sent the truck into a whirling spectacle of a donut. Grave Digger immediately went from that move to more air domination before the clock expired. The fans were cheering on grave Digger, but it would be up to the judges to decide. Triple nines shined high for Grave Digger as he edged out Advance Auto Parts Grinder by a single point to take the freestyle win.

Saturday Afternoon

Three different winners were crowned this afternoon as the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam roared in the Consol Energy Center. Rap Attack, Advance Auto Parts Grinder and Grave Digger were all hailed as victors displaying their own unique talents as they wowed the fans.

Rap Attack wowed the fans during the Monster Jam Wheelie contest mid way through the competition with some awesome vertical air. When the truck landed the rear tires sank into the crush cars like they were pillows before finally rolling off the stack still staying vertical. The momentum would carry him through the first round before being ousted by Monster Mutt. Monster Mutt would then be edged out by Zombie by the margin of a snaggle tooth to put Zombie in the UTI Championship round to face Advance Auto Parts Grinder. Grinder, piloted by Frank Krmel, kick started the contest by edging out Grave Digger driven by Gary Porter in round one. Then, it was another tough match up with Eradicator before finally squaring off with Sean Duhon in Zombie. Grinder took the win with an amazing hole shot and crossed the Advance Auto Parts finish line ahead of Zombie by a quarter truck length to take home the second racing championship of the weekend.

While Monster Mutt held the lead in Service is our Best Part Freestyle for the longest time, Advance Auto Parts Grinder put up an amazing run to tie to for the score to beat as the second of last truck of the performance. But Porter sat in Grave Digger and watched all those runs with a little bit of a chip on his shoulder after finishing short in Wheelies and being taken out during the first round in racing. Porter wanted to make sure that the Grave Digger fans were satisfied with the black and green wrecking machine as he left it all out on the floor. Grave Digger soared high, launched vertically into some spectacular wheelies and then turned out a long amazing donut to end the run. It was clear that there would not have to be a tie breaker as the scores popped and the judges awarded Grave Digger singular perfect 10 and two nines to clearly wipe out the competition and take the freestyle win.

Saturday Night

Advance Auto Parts Grinder and Grave Digger continued their domination tonight by once again taking the trophies for racing and freestyle respectively. Both trucks were 110% and had the fans on their feet at the Consol Energy Center for the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam.

Andy Slifko in Eradicator wowed the crowd to kick off the show with a spectacular high flying exhibition during the Monster Jam Wheelie Competition to take the win. The winning effort from Slifko was probably the most impressive wheelie during the weekend’s competition. The Monster Jam Racing Competition grabbed the attention of the fans immediately as a super fast Advance Auto Parts Grinder edged out Grave Digger in the first round of racing. Grinder then took out Eradicator to enter the UTI Championship Round of racing. Matched up in the other race lane of the finals was Sean Duhon in Zombie who was racing in his second UTI Championship round of the weekend. Zombie easily made it into the finals for a rematch from the afternoon session. As the lights dropped both drivers got great hole shots and it was too close to call without numerous replays before Grinder was declared the winner.

Monster Mutt held the lead for the longest time in the Service is our Best Part Freestyle Competition with a sweet run utilizing the entire floor for his run. Krmel would knock him off that pedestal as the Grinder performed its signature high flying action with a combination of big air and wheelies. All the while Gary Porter sat in Grave Digger watching the action and plotting the approach for the course for the iconic truck. Grave Digger bookended the 60 second run with donuts and mixing in big air, wheelies and nonstop action. But the highlight of the run came at the end when Porter whirled Grave Digger into a tight donut and spun with excited intensity bringing the crowd to their feet and taking home the hardware.

Sunday Afternoon

The final Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam for the weekend brought an unparalleled level of electricity and excitement to at the Consol Energy Center here in Pittsburgh. Frank Krmel brought home the racing trophy in Advance Auto Parts Grinder and Gary Porter in Grave Digger snagged the freestyle trophy which made it a clean sweep of in their respective categories for the weekend.

But Grinder and Grave Digger weren’t the only winners. Andy Slifko had the perfect set up on his Eradicator truck for the Monster Jam Wheelie competition where he made his truck soar straight and high to take home the victory. While Eradicator clearly won the wheelie competition, there were no standout straightforward winners during the Monster Jam Racing Competition. Almost every race came down to an instant replay to determine the winner and those races not requiring replay were won by less than a tire length. The races were close but the UTI Championship round of racing seemed like déjà vu all over again as Sean Duhon in Zombie lined up against Krmel and Grinder for the third time this weekend. Zombie was winless and hungry but Grinder was looking for the clean sweep. After the trucks crossed the Advance Auto Parts Finish Line, the officials had to review the race from three different replay angles to determine that Advance Auto Parts Grinder was the winner. Krmel would make a clean sweep of the UTI Championship Round of racing for the weekend with 4 huge wins.

During the Service is Our Best Part Freestyle Competition, Jeremy Slifko laid down his best run of the weekend in Backdraft. His run consisted of quick hits, some big air off of the center obstacle and an amazing no hands cyclone to cap it all off. Backdraft would hold the lead until Krmel brought Grinder to the floor. Gunning for the Double Down trophy that had eluded him all weekend, Krmel pushed Grinder to the max getting some of the biggest air of the weekend while exhibiting great throttle control with some sweet wheelies even throwing in a little slap wheelie. Grinder edged out Backdraft by a single point with one competitor remaining. Grave Digger hit the floor with authority launching immediately into a wheelie and then hitting the center stack for big air that turned into a slap wheelie upon landing. Then Grave Digger whirled into a 4 revolution donut before attacking the obstacles on the course from a different angle each time. The fans were on their feet but the feather in the cap of the run was when Porter spin Grave Digger into an amazing cyclone as the clock expired. The judges were just as impressed as the fans since Grave Digger earned two perfect 10s and a 9 to take home the fourth Freestyle championship of the weekend!
