Saturday Night

History. It's made everyday, and in Phoenix, Todd Leduc and Blue Thunder got his first ever Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam racing win, going into the history books as one of the few Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam rookies to take a win in the first year. Congrats to the newest young gun!! Todd tried his hardest to Double Down, but came up just short of really making a splash in Phoenix. History and tradition continued in Phoenix as well. Over the last several years, Jim Kohler has become known not only for his off the hook Freestyle runs, but also for jumping into the fountain at the World Finals. Jim treated the fans to a dip in the outfield pool at Chase Field on Saturday night after a typical and tremendous run from Kohler and Avenger. The rest of the Monster Jam drivers kept the tradition alive in Phoenix by going out and trashing the trucks. Before freestyle was even into the middle, the fans had already seen 3 trucks upside down and trashed, and a killer piece of driving by Jim Kohler and Avenger, saving a sure rollover at the finish line in round one of Monster Jam racing. Avenger and Madusa came together at the finish with Jim Kohler saving an acrobatic near crash. Simply AWESOME!!! And speaking of AWESOME, that would be the best descriptive word for Chad Tinglers freestyle run. Hammering the truck for the full 90 seconds of regulation, and then after fans thought he had dine all he could, he wicked it up even more for the 30 second bonus time. Dude is good, and the truck is a Legend!!!
