There is always a first for everything in Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam and tonight was no exception. The great fans who have been coming to Speedway 95 for the past nine years finally got some dry weather. That's right NO RAIN and a dry track! It was also the first time Ryan Anderson drove his new Son Uva Digger truck in competition and win his first racing trophy. It was also the debut for the Bangor Natives Chris Ryan driving Excaliber and Greg Winchanbach driving the awesome looking Crushstation Monster Truck.

The night started off with the Wheelie contest were Grave Digger took the win with two huge sky wheelies. It was then time for racing as there was three styles of racing for the fans to enjoy. First was the street warriors competition tha had ten trucks battle for the fastest time on a long winding track. Larry Laney took home that trophy with a winning time of 23.97 seconds. Then it was time for Quad Wars as Team Maine won two out of three races to win that trophy. The last of the racing for the night was Monster Trucks and how fitting it was to see Son Uva Digger race against Grave Digger in the finals. The race was a photo finish as the young Ryan Anderson edge out the Black and Green Wrecking Machine by inches for his first ever win in his new truck.

Freestyle was last for the night and what a line up of some of the best Monster Jam drivers to compete in. Greg Winchanbach was the big winner edging out Grave Digger and Shock Therapy by one point. The scoring was close for all four trucks as John Zimmer was awesome as well as Ryan Anderson and Chris Ryan driving Excaliber. Here are tonight's results for all three events.

Greg Winchanbach also had a strong day in Crushstation by taking second in wheelies and making it to the semi finals in racing.

Racing was close in every race as Grave Digger had the bye run in round one and defeated Fast looser Excaliber in the semi finals. The finals was the same as last night pairing Grave Digger up against Son uva Digger. When the green light was lit both trucks leap from the starting line and this time Grave Digger won by inches. In other racing action Son uva Digger made it to the finals by beating Excaliber in round one and taking out Crushstation in the semi finals. Crushstation made it to the semi finals with a victory over Shock Therapy.

Freestyle was again thrilling as each truck performed more than there allotted time of 60 seconds giving everything back to the great fans in Bangor Maine. The track made all of the difference in the way the trucks performed giving the fans more high flying jumps, super fast cyclones and awesome slap wheelies. If the judges had to score the trucks on everything they did outside of the 60 seconds all five would have scored perfect thirty's. Here are all of todays scores.

So far this is a record for the most days with out rain when Monster Jam has been in town her in Bangor. Tonight's track was even throwing up dust and we had to water the track down to keep the dust from flying. That is a first in the fine years Ihave been doing this show. The great weather has added to the thrills and excitement for the fans with some great racing and awesome freestyles every time a monster truck hit the track.

The night started off with the wheelie contest and Crushstation took the win with two great wheelies that had the home town driver grinning from ear to ear. It didn't stop there for Greg Winchanbach as he would go on to win another freestyle trophy over Grave Digger and the rest of the star studded field of trucks. Grave Digger continued to dominate in racing but it did not come easy. His victory in the finals was again by inches over Son uva Digger as was his win in the semi finals over Crushstation.

Larry Laney again won in the street warrior racing with a time of 29.12 seconds. Laney beat out Jami Cail by .56 seconds as Dave Cianci took third while Skip Simpson was fourth. Team Maine squeak out a win in the main event of the Quad war challenge with a photo finish at the checker flag. Tomorrow will be the fourth and final show and it will be a first to hold one on a Sunday afternoon and I can't wait. Her are all of the scores from tonight.

Another sunny day and not a cloud in the sky as Monster Jam was set for the fourth and final show of in Bangor Maine. The stage was set for some awesome battles but mechanical failuar haunted every team. Crushstation won the wheelie contest but broke a spindle and lost oil preasure keeping him from returning to action. Son uva Digger won Racing but he broke 30 seconds into his freestyle denying him of a double down. That gave the win to Grave Digger who was the only truck not to have any problems.

In the street warrior division Lary Laney swept the weekend with his fourth consecutive. Team Maine continued to dominate as they won the Quad War main by two quad lengths. This was the first time in over eight years since there has been a Sunday Monster Jam at Speedway 95 and today was a good day to start. Here are the results.
