Digger wins Monster Jam MPLS

Jason D Searcy (

Dennis Anderson driving Grave Digger swept the trophys at the Metrodome on a snowy night in Minneapolis (MN) on Saturday Nov 13th.

Grave Digger sent home the crowd happy, ripping up his truck and scoring a 30 to win the "Free Style" competition.  Here is a you-tube link to his winning run

Lupe Soza in Grinder never slowed down, even after blowing both tires on the same side of his truck, he finished second with 27pts.  Here is a link to that run  Tom Meents in Maximum Destruction had an awesome run cut short with mechanical problems, he scored 26.  Jeremy Slifko in Backdraft was the second truck to hit the track, he scored a 25 and held the lead for much of the night.

The racing portion of the night saw Grave Digger as the fast qualifier (18.60), just edging Blue Thunder (18.72), Captains Curse (18.78) and Air Force Afterburner (18.84).

Grave Digger defeated Mohawk Warrior, Grinder and Air Force Afterburner to advance to the finals.  Maximum Destruction beat Brutus, Avenger and Blue Thunder on his way to the end of the bracket.

The "Greatest rivalry in Motorsports" saw Grave Digger edge Maximum Destruction in the racing finals.
