Wednesday, trucks and drivers were ready for the Monster Jam World Finals group photo. Avenger was proud to show off its new Vegas color, The Auto Air Colors
Fluorescent Hot Green.
Friday was the Double Down Pit Party. Jim signed autographs and took a ton of pictures. For that occasion, Wrecking Crew was also on display and Steve was there for the fans.
Friday night was the qualifying, where all the bodies are off the trucks, to make sure that if a crash occurs, the body won't be ruined for the Saturday show.
Both Wrecking Crew and Avenger were spick-and-span for the pit party saturday
Jim and Steve signed a lot of autographs.
"Jim Koehler for President"
Before the show, nothing like a little nap...
Avenger won the first round of racing against Pastrana 199, but was defeated by Captains Curse in the round 2
After defeating Taz and Air Force, Batman won the races championship against Captains Curse and became, for the second year in a row, the Monster Jam World Finals Racing Champion
During freestyle, Jim started wild with big air
Unfortunatly, early in its freestyle, Avenger lost a wheel. However, he kept going ripping off a wicked donut again and again, for the crowd's pleasure. He had the truck spinning so fast it finally stopped its donut when the truck was up side down
Once Jim got out of Avenger, he put a mask and snorkle on, that a fan gave him durring the pit party. The crowd was getting louder and louder as he was getting close to the water fall. They went crazy when he jumped in.
Thanks for all the fans who came to support us!
The truck was pretty damaged after the show
After a really nice freestyle, Taz, driven by Adam Anderson, became the Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Champion
