Authored by Larry Jewett on April 23, 2019
The field continues to grow as Monster Jam World Finals® XX at Camping World Stadium in Orlando is a little more than two weeks away. The two-day event, May 10-11, will offer seven chances for a World Championship. These competitors will be focusing their attention on Friday Racing and Saturday Freestyle.
Neil Elliott (Max-DTM) will be making his ninth appearance at Monster Jam World Finals in search of his first championship. Elliott narrowly missed winning the Stadium Championship SeriesTM 2 title, finishing second on the strength of nearly a dozen wins in the 2 Wheel Skills ChallengeTM. Elliott compiled a 31-10 Racing record this season, scoring four Racing Championships. He added four Event Championships and picked up one Freestyle. The Freestyle event came at Camping World Stadium and it was Elliott’s third career Freestyle victory at the stadium that is hosting Monster Jam World Finals. Elliott will also be a candidate for a championship in the Friday 2 Wheel Skills Challenge competition.
History will be made as BroDozer, the first diesel-powered Monster Jam truck, will be part of racing and Freestyle with Heavy D of Discovery Channel’s Diesel Brothers at the controls. Heavy started his year on the right foot with an Event Championship on the opening weekend in Tampa and backed up the effort with a Freestyle win in Anaheim.
Bryce Kenny (Great Clips Mohawk Warrior®) will be back for his third appearance in Monster Jam World Finals. Winner of two Freestyle events in 2019 (Oakland and Syracuse), Kenny compiled a 12-14 racing record in the ultra-tough Stadium Championship Series 2.
Former champion Jimmy Creten (Bounty Hunter) will be back for his 18th consecutive appearance. Creten, who won Racing at Camping World Stadium in 2018, captured a Racing win in Detroit this year and posted a 21-12 racing record. The 2005 World Freestyle Champion is ranked third on the all-time wins list for World Finals competition with a record of 28-18.
