World Finals Field Grows
Authored by Admin on February 28, 2018
Three former World Champions have been added to the field for Monster Jam World Finals® XIX.
Adam Anderson (Grave Digger®), Jim Koehler (Avenger) and Todd LeDuc (Mutant™) will be seeking to add another title when the competition is held March 23-24 at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas.
Anderson finished as runner-up of Stadium Championship Series 1 in 2018. He has a 27-5 Racing record on the year, already capturing seven Racing championships. He has also won three Freestyle championships in 2018. Anderson is a four-time World Champion, capturing Racing titles in 2013 and 2014 to go along with Freestyle championships in 2008 and 2016. This will mark his 13th straight Monster Jam World Finals appearance.
Two-time champion Jim Koehler will continue his streak as the only driver to compete in all Monster Jam World Finals competitions. Koehler, winner of the 2003 and 2011 Freestyle Championships, recorded three Freestyle wins this season (Anaheim twice, Atlanta). In last year’s Monster Jam World Finals, Koehler raced his way into the Semi-Finals and backed it up with a third-place finish in Freestyle.
Todd LeDuc will bring Mutant to Monster Jam World Finals for the first time. The 2014 Freestyle and 2015 Racing champion, LeDuc has finished in the top five in his last 12 Stadium regular season Freestyle events. He won three Racing championships in 2018 and compiled a 15-8 record for the season. This will be his sixth consecutive appearance at Monster Jam World Finals.
More competitors are anxiously awaiting the news of future bids with several more to come soon.
