Monster Jam 2011

This past weekend, malady Advance Auto Parts brought the Monster Jam truck rally to the Tacoma Dome. Prior to Saturday’s back-to-back shows, more about fans had the chance to participate in the Party in the Pits special, approved where fans could collect autographs and photos with the superstar trucks and their drivers. Twelve nationally-touring trucks made appearances, including the highly-acclaimed Grave Digger and Superman. Special appearances were also made by Captain USA, the only local Washington truck, and Mohawk Warrior, driven by George Balhan.

The Monster Jam show consisted of two main competitions: a speed-trial, won by the Lucas Oil Crusader, and a freestyle tournament, won by Grave Digger Legend.  Full results and a recap of the whole Tacoma event can be found on the Monster Jam website. Some of my event photos can be found below, and more can be found on my Flickr (Party in the Pits on Flickr; Monster Jam show on Flickr).
