Metal Mulisha laid down the night’s fastest time in the first qualifying run, and Captain’s Curse®, driven by Pablo Huffaker, matched the Metal Mulisha time in its second run. The eventual pole position went to Metal Mulisha by way of tie-breaker and leads the field into tomorrow night’s 13th-annual Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Finals. Monster Energy, driven by Damon Bradshaw, takes third position into Saturday.

“The Metal Mulisha truck is so fast,” said LeDuc. “I was hitting all of my marks out there tonight, and I am excited for tomorrow night. I would like to thank Brian Deegan for this opportunity.”
