Saturday Night

What an exciting night for Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam at Angel Stadium! The highlight moments of the night had to be Lee O'Donnell in Iron Man slamming into one of the freestyle pads in racing with the right front at speed, launching 80' with the driver’s side tilted toward the ground, landing on the side walls. Lee saved it, then got the truck settled to make the turn and continue racing, simply amazing!! Highlight 2 was Donald Epidendio in Titan taking the UTI Championship Round of Racing win, which he had also done just 2 weeks ago. Donald also had a high speed impact with the same freestyle stack that jumped out on Iron Man, but not nearly as severe. Donald settled the truck quickly and then out horse powered Grave Digger to the finish to advance to the final. The final highlight of the night was getting to watch Adam Anderson run his Grave Digger The Legend in freestyle. Everyone of the Anderson's, whether it is Dennis, Adam or Ryan, give the fans 100% when they strap into the truck. Adam's pace was unmatched in Anaheim tonight; the sheer reckless abandon that Adam attacks the obstacles with is edge of your seat entertainment. The incredible heights and blazing speed make every moment of an Anderson run a highlight!!
