Authored by Samuel Reiman on May 22, 2023


The final championship points event of the 2023 Monster Jam season took place Saturday night at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, MO.


Despite a mechanical issue during the Racing competition that took him out in the first round, Tyler Menninga (Grave Digger) clinched the Stadium Championship Series Blue title, as Ryan Anderson (Son-Uva Digger) could not overcome the points deficit.



Things started promising for Anderson, as he won the Racing final over John Gordon (Bad Company).



However, the black-and-green wrecking machine got back on track with Menninga putting on a solid performance in the Great Clips Skills Challenge, which was enough to clinch the title. Bari Musawwir (Zombie) won the Skills competition.



Joe Foley (Axe) took home his first career Monster Jam Freestyle win with a superb run that netted him a score of 9.685.



At the end of the night, it was Cory Rummell (Megalodon) who took home the overall event championship with finishes of 3rd – 2nd – 3rd.


As a tour champion, Menninga becomes a Monster Jam World Finals main event qualifier. The full list of Monster Jam World Finals XXII competitors will be announced in the coming weeks, with World Finals taking place at Nissan Stadium in Nashville on Saturday, July 1.
