Friday Night

Dairy Queen presented the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam brought to you by Casey’s General Store tonight at The Ford Center. With six amazing Monster Jam trucks, the house was ready to rock.

Get Er Done kicked off the night with a win in the Monster Jam Wheelie contest but that momentum wouldn’t carry over to Casey’s General Store Monster Jam Racing. Bad News Travels Fast took out Get Er Done in round one and also in the semi-finals after Get Er Done had the opportunity for a comeback as the fast loser. Samson had an issue in round one against Stomper where it was later discovered in the pits that the truck broke an outer axle. But much credit to Stomper as the truck beat Robo Machine in a photo finish to work into the UTI Racing Finals. In another photo finish, Bad News Travels Fast edged out Stomper to take the Casey’s General Store Monster Jam Racing Title.

Advance Auto Parts Service is our Best Part Freestyle was a frenzy of excitement with Robo Machine providing the most highlights and excitement for the fans. In true Monster Jam style, the truck wowed the fans by hitting obstacles from many different angles and getting big air.

Saturday Afternoon

The Party in the Pits kicked off the day here at the Ford Center in Evansville for as Dairy Queen presented the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam brought to you by Casey’s General Store.

Mechanical problems came to light for Bad News Travels Fast as the starter went out on the truck after the Party in the Pits. Get Er Done also had a starter problem during the Monster Jam Wheelie Competition and couldn’t make it out. Robo Machine took the early win in this competition and was ready to rock.

During the Casey’s General Store Racing Competition Samson marched easily through the bracket to the UTI Racing Finals to face Robo Machine. Samson took an easy win as Robo Machine lost the transmission as soon as the truck left the line. While Robo Machine was out for Advance Auto Parts Service is our Best Part Freestyle, the crowd was still wowed with amazing action. Stomper kicked off the competition with some great donuts and Bad News Travels Fast followed that up with big air and donuts. But Samson stole the show with lots of horsepower, big air and donuts. The veteran wowed the fans and had everyone on their feet to end the show!

Saturday Night

The Monster Jam trucks were ready to roar as the rain stopped and the skies cleared just in time as Dairy Queen presented the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam brought to you by Casey’s General Store.

Stomper blared out of the pits and took the win in the Monster Jam Wheelie Competition. But that’s where the winning streak would end for Stomper as Bad News Travels Fast easily took the win in Casey’s General Store Monster Jam Racing to move on the finals. Samson would also make it to the UTI Racing finals after taking out Quadzilla. The UTI Championship round of racing came down to a photo finish and after many replays it was determined that Bad News Travels Fast edged out Samson.

Brandon Derrow took the momentum from his racing win in Bad News Travels Fast to fuel his fire for Advance Auto Parts Service is our Best Part Freestyle. He came out on top as the clear winner with a run that included a couple of quick hits then an amazing donut. As Bad News Travels Fast came out of the donut, the truck launched up the big ramp on the floor and caught some amazing vertical air. Derrow came out the winner and picked up his first double down ever!
