Friday 7pm

Friday night is in the books in Chattanooga, TN and it was a great night to be an Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam fan!

Wheelies would have several good efforts but it would boil down to Black Stallion and Mohawk Warrior. Both Monster Jam Trucks had great wheelies but Black Stallion and Mike Vaters was just a little better getting the win.

Monster Jam Truck racing would see the field narrowed down to four, and those four were Black Stallion, Grave Digger, Mohawk Warrior, and Monster Mutt Dalmatian. Tayrn Laskey in Dalmatian would actually roll her way into the semis with a great run winning by mere inches and landing her on the side of her big Monster Mutt Dalmatian. In The End it would be a win for the Mohawk nation as George Balhan would get the win!

Monster Jam Freestyle was a great way to cap off a fantastic Friday night! All of the Monster Jam trucks would make the call and lay down some fun freestyles! Once the night was called Grave Digger and John Zimmer would be crowned the Champion...

Saturday 7pm

Saturday night is history but the crowd in the McKenzie Arena here in Chattanooga had the time of their lives! The night started with the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam Truck Wheelies and all trucks would come out and rock the Monster Jam Crush Cars with big air. Mohawk Warrior and George Balhan would come out first and set the bar just out of reach of each of the other Monster Jam trucks with a score of 26 for the win.

Monster Jam Truck Racing was nonstop and the field of trucks was whittled down to just two trucks. They would be Northern Nightmare and Grave Digger. The table was set for a finish that would have to be looked over several times to determine a winner. In the end it was Northern Nightmare driven by Cam McQueen as the UTI Championship Race winner!

Donuts were a great time here in Chattanooga for the sold out arena! All monster Jam Trucks had a go, but the winner was an easy choice as John Zimmer and Grave Digger had cyclone donuts going that brought the crowd to its feet!

Advance Auto Parts Freestyle would be less one truck, Monster Mutt Dalmatian was unable to perform as a steering issue would sideline Taryn Laskey in her puppy. The remaining trucks would come out and lay down one solid run after another. Once the dust settled the trophy would be going home to Kill Devil Hills and Grave Digger.
