The track was pretty simple: Two car stacks for side by side racing, and a van stack in the middle for freestyle.

All the trucks were ready for the pit party Saturday afternoon.

Jim and Chris had fun at the pit party with the fans. Jim also gave a wild interview.

On Saturday, Brutus went head to head against Avenger during racing. Avenger won, but it was a really close race

Both trucks did good during freestyle. It was exciting and the fans were happy!

"That middle row of cars took a pounding during this awesome freestyle here in Cincy. Batman lead the way followed by Monster Mutt, Brutus, Donkey Kong, Avenger and Digger. It was incredible….. at one point Avenger was up on two…. but……saved it…WOW!!" - Monster Jam Online

Other trucks at the show were: Batman, Monster Mutt Dalmatian, Donkey Kong, & Grave Digger
