The weekend started by a display at the Advance Auto Parts. Jim was there during the afternoon to sign autographs and meet the fans.
All the trucks were ready for the pit party on Saturday
The announcers for the weekend, Mitch and Mike, did a really good job. Mitch also interviewed the drivers during the pit party.
A lot of fans were there to get pictures and autographs with the drivers.
Check out more pics of the pit party on our Pit Party Photos
Jim was really excited to win the Wheelie competition on Friday night. The winner of every competition had to use the shirts cannon to shoot shirts in the stands.
"Steve Koehler lit the track up, and got the fans on their feet with an amazing cyclone. He held the high score throughout the competition. [...] Brutus had no trouble, [...] as he launched into his Donut, spinning it right up onto the car stack. Chris shut his monster down knowing he already had the fans and the judges ready to put up the high score". - Mitch, Monster Jam Online
Steve did a really good donut during the donut competition. He got a score of 22. Chris won the competiton with a 23
The weekend went pretty good, and our four trucks put on an awesome show, along with Nitemare.
The crowd was really excited during the show. Trucks were getting big air, and the competition was really on the edge.
After defeating Avenger in the first round, and then Spike in the second, Steve & Wrecking Crew got their first Racing victory, against Nitemare!
"The Decker Wreckers Monster Donut competition would prove to be extremely tough on the monsters…[...]Spike lost his drive shaft, and sprayed drive parts all over the floor". - Mitch, Monster Jam Online
The track was really tacky, so it was really hard for the trucks to launch into a donut
Jim ended the last freestyle of the weekend with a crazy donut
"In the end Avenger came out and delivered the freestyle donut of the weekend… I was on the sidelines and it made me dizzy!! Wow….I’m guessing 20-25 revolutions……wooooo hoooooo!!" - Mitch, Monster Jam Online
A lot of fans were at the autograph session, at the end of the show
Nitemare, driven by Andy Hoffman, was also at the show
The Cannon Lady was there too to give an incredible show
