Speed TV interviewed both Jim and Chris during the pit party.

The track in Jacksonville was pretty cool, with big obstacles and a lot of different options!

Brutus and Avenger did pretty good in qualifying, but did not win in their first round of racing. Destroyer defeated Avenger, and Mopar Magic defeated Brutus.

Brutus had a really good freestyle. (Look at the bottom of the page for the video of its freestyle)

After getting big air on the dirt hill, a hard landing projected the truck on its side, and it rolled over.

"Dan Evans in Destroyer and Chris Bergeron in Brutus were tied for the top score until Steve Simms ripped up the Jax floor in Stone Crusher to grab the hot seat[...]" - Scott Douglas, Monster Jam Online

Avenger had a really strong start in freestyle, but an early crash ended Jim's run. (Look at the bottom of the page for the video)

He wanted to keep going, but the officials would not let him restart the truck

Jim still had a crazy interview after his crash!
