Friday Night

Double Down!! Cam McQueen and Northern Nightmare recorded their first ever double down at Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam in Fargo. Cam beat Jon Zimmer in Grave Digger in the racing final and then put together a 60 second freestyle run that would also put them in victory lane. Zimmer and Digger might have won, but they left 15 seconds on the clock when Jon rolled the black and green wrecking machine. The last 3 trucks in freestyle all rolled in virtually the same spot, coming into the pit area turn a little too hot and with the extremely tacky racing surface it didn't take much to hook and roll the Monster Jam trucks over on their lid.

Saturday 2 PM

Cam did it last night, Jon did it today. DOUBLE DOWN!! Jon Zimmer and Grave Digger won all 3 Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam competitions today and that included the highly coveted double down, winning racing and freestyle.
Jon did it in style as well. One of the best slap wheelie saves I have seen in recent years and then putting the truck upside down as the run time came to an end.

Saturday Night

Cam and Northern Nightmare doubled down on Friday Night, Jon and Grave Digger doubled down on Saturday afternoon, so the rubber match was Saturday night. Although they had both doubled down over the course of the weekend, Jon Zimmer and Grave Digger had the advantage over Cam and Nightmare, having won both Friday and Saturday afternoon's Monster Jam Wheelie Competition. Cam came out tonight set on evening the score, and started well with a one point victory over Digger in wheelies. Both drivers wowed the crowd on their second hit, with what looked like broken left rear drive axles, both trucks spun violently to the left, where as Digger settled right down, Cam and the Northern Nightmare had a little more exciting ride. The axles had not broken; it was just the way the crush car stacks had laid down. When Cam landed he was considerably more to the left than Digger and the officials used the RII and shut him down. When that happened, Northern Nightmare was balanced up on the left rear and slowly drifted down and rebounded off of the tires back over on all 4. Zimmer and Digger came right back and won the UIT Championship round of racing in a photo finish over Cam and Nightmare. It all came down to freestyle. Cam gad a run for the ages, saving a couple of rollovers, then in an instant replay of the previous save, Cam did the same maneuver, but this time the bounce didn't go his way and the truck ended up over on its lid. Zimmer and Digger came out knowing what they needed to do but came up 1 point short again to Cam. In the end, Digger had one more win than Nightmare, which just means the rivalry between teammates will continue on to the next Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam stop.
