Fans in Vancouver were treated to not just Racing, 2-Wheel Skills and Freestyle runs, but the Sky Wheelie Challenge too, which saw Menninga, Castro, Ashley Sanford (Megalodon) and Linsey Read (Scooby-Doo!) pick up competition wins. Saturday night, it was announced on “Inside Monster Jam” on MavTV that Read will be behind the wheel of Lucas Stabilizer next year while Cynthia Gauthier will be on maternity leave.


Melbourne: It was Monster Jam vs. Marvel in Australia as the four Marvel Monster Jam trucks lined up to take on the likes of Grave Digger, Max-D, El Toro Loco and Megalodon during two events Saturday at the AAMI Park. While Charlie Pauken (Megalodon) took the overall event win at both events, it wasn’t without a fight.
