The road to the Monster Jam World Finals rolled into the sold out Carrier Dome here in Syracuse NY. Monster Jam fans had 16 of the top Monster Jam drivers battling it out in Monster Jam racing and fox sports 1 freestyle competition's. With 10 of the 16 competitors World final competitors and 4 young gun competitors in the field the sold out Carrier Dome saw over the top "As Big As It Gets" Monster Jam action all night long. The action kicked off with the Monster Jam racing rounds with races coming do an to the line as every driver wanted the win. Monster Jam fans cheered for their favorite drivers and trucks with every round of racing and in the Championship round it would be a father vs son battle between Grave Digger and Son-uva Digger. When the lights went green both drivers would launch off the starting line and over the crush car stacks dead even into the first turn. Coming out of turn one Grave Digger would spin out and not have enough time to correct as Son-uva Digger would catch and pass him for the Monster Jam racing win.
Monster Jam fans were ready for more action and it was delivered to the sold out crowd in the Monster Jam fox sports 1 freestyle competition. Every Monster Jam driver that hit the track had the fans on their feet with jaw dropping wheelies, huge airs over the car stacks, and even bigger airs off the 14 foot tall dirt launches. Every Monster Jam driver would better the run and score of the previous driver before them and the fans saw Son-uva Digger put a score of 28 on the board after his blistering freestyle run. Max-D was the final driver to hit the track and he let people know why he's an 11 time world champion by laying down a freestyle so hard that he blew his front right tire right off the truck. In true Max-D form he continued his run with only 3 tires and the fans were going crazy as time ran out and with Max-D taking the fox sports 1 freestyle championship.
A big high five to the staff of the Carrier Dome and to all the Monster Jam fans, we'll see you guys in two weeks at the Monster Jam World Finals presented by NGK Spark Plugs at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
