Adam Anderson in Grave Digger the Legend joined Tom Meents and John Seasock as the only drivers in Monster Jam history to successfully defend the Monster Jam World Finals Racing Championship by powering through the largest field ever to compete in a Monster Jam racing bracket and defeating Meents and Max-D in the final race of an incredible night of action at Monster Jam World Finals XV presented by NGK Spark Plugs at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.


The historic first ever 32-truck Monster Jam World Finals competition lived up to the incredible hype for the event and this first ever night of all Monster Jam racing was full of photo finishes, awesome intensity, major controversy, and crowd pleasing moments where the biggest superstars in the sport all rose to the occasion and had the capacity crowd on its feet throughout the event.


On a night full of the spectacular one of the races in the very first round provided both an intriguing story line and one of the many Wow moments: a first round match-up between the only two drivers who have competed in all 15 Monster Jam World Finals, Jim Koehler in Avenger and Meents in Max-D. As fate would have it following the qualifying on Double Down Thursday that set the racing bracket Max-D and Avenger would be paired in the 1st round, the first time they have have ever squared off head to head in that decade and a half of Monster Jam at Sam Boyd Stadium. Meents would win the race but the fans were buzzing about Avenger’s crazy roll over heading into the final turn. Another first round highlight was the battle between Mike Vaters II in Overkill Evolution, who earned the last available Monster Jam World Finals berth by winning the Young Guns Shootout on Thursday, facing off against veteran Pablo Huffaker and Wolverine. That race stayed tight start to finish with Wolverine squeezing out the narrow win.


As the bracket unfolded it was a night where the “chalk” delivered creating a final four of The Legend, Grave Digger and Dennis Anderson, Max-D, and Lee O’Donnell’s Iron Man. The first semifinal race was a family affair and one of the best races of the night with the son, Adam in the Legend, eliminating his father in Grave Digger. The second semi provided the controversy when Max-D faced Iron Man. Roaring through the chicane in Thunder Alley Max-D hit the k-rail and was inadvertently shut down by the remote ignition interrupter. Following up on the racing rules explained in the drivers meeting the fact that Max-D had been shut off through no fault of its own the race was re-run, and in a great battle Max-D edged Iron Man at the finish.


In the final Anderson ran a flawless race while Meents’ truck lost control half way through the run and soared high into the air but way off course as The Legend flew across the finish line for the second consecutive Monster Jam World Finals racing championship to be won in The Legend by Anderson and Crew Chief Cole Venard.

2014 Monster Jam World Finals Championship – Grave Digger The Legend def Max-D



Conquering both the largest field to ever compete for the Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Championship and the most challenging, extreme, radically designed course ever created Todd LeDuc turned in the performance of a lifetime and Metal Mulisha was a clear cut winner of the intense competition at Monster Jam World Finals XV, the first Monster Jam World Championship for LeDuc and Metal Mulisha.


As the capacity crowd entered the stadium fans marveled at the layout of the track with huge ramps and obstacles, a first of its kind course built without having to leave room for racing lanes. Overall the competition was as much between the track and the trucks and the track won most of the time, but several of the world’s most talented freestylers, led by the new World Champion, rose to the occasion and gave the fans a series of Wow moments and memorable freestyle runs.


Coming out third among the 32 Monster Jam trucks Nicole Johnson and Scooby Doo became the first to fill both the regulation and bonus clocks and landed the first back flip of the night to take the lead, then Young Guns champ Mike Vaters II followed suit in Overkill Evolution’s first ever Monster Jam World Finals performance and moved to the top of the leader board. Next out was veteran Chad Fortune in Captain America who had the crowd cheering one of his best freestyles ever than included an amazing moment where Captain America drove sideways up and across the end of the track containers and kept the run going. Captain America became the first truck to exceed 30 on the scoreboard, earning a total score of 30.5 under the special scoring system for the expanded Monster Jam World Finals XV freestyle that allowed judges to award points both with whole numbers and half numbers, once the high and the low scores from regulation were dropped Captain America had regulation scores of 7, 7, 7, and 7.5 plus 2 bonus points to take the advantage.


Fortune would remain in the leader’s Hot Seat for through the next 11 runs. Then out came Scott Buetow and Team Hot Wheels Firestorm. Buetow filled the clock with a huge air run that also included a successful back flip to take over the lead. A career making night for this rising star, Buetow and Tem Hot Wheels Firestorm would finish the night as the runner-up for the Monster Jam World Freestyle Championship, a crown that was claimed emphatically by Metal Mulisha.


LeDuc announced his presence like no one else in the contest roaring onto the track and blasting up a steep ramp to get breathtaking air, a leap that crossed the stadium track and posted a hang time of four seconds and Metal Mulisha continued to electrify the roaring crowd through the rest of regulation and bonus. The amazing run also included one back flip in regulation and another back flip for the bonus judge to score, a pair of huge saves, combos and cross threads that separated LeDuc’s performance from the pack as Metal Mulisha came out on top at the historic Monster Jam World Finals XV Freestyle.
