Monster Jam World Finals 11 was held on March 26-27, 2010 at Sam Boyd Stadium. This World Finals was controversial with mainly the drivers who actively expressed their disdain for how large the track was, with many trucks breaking or rolling over. Another thing talked about was the number of racing crashes, 5, compared to the normal 0-2, which left multiple trucks out, or damaged for freestyle. On the plus side however, this was the first World Finals where the championship race was between Tom Meents and Dennis Anderson.

  • This is the only World Finals, so far where multiple trucks (in this instance, three: Batman, Taz, and Amsoil Shock Therapy) were given a freestyle score of 4, the lowest possible score, ending them up in The Doghouse. It is likely due to the controversially difficult freestyle track that caused this, as they all either broke or crashed early in their runs.
  • George Balhan's new Mohawk Warrior truck's debut performance was actually on the Obsession chassis. Wrecking Crew was performed on Brutus' chassis as well, while being driven by Chris Bergeron, Brutus', at the time, regular driver.
  • The Blue and Silver throwback Grave Digger truck would later turn into a full competition truck, known as Grave Digger the Legend driven by Adam Anderson, who also drove it during the encore. Grave Digger The Legend would go on to receive its own chassis for full time competition; for the encore, it was used on a green Grave Digger chassis. The truck was put on hold in 2015, but is planned to make a return in the future.
  • Excluding El Toro Loco and King Krunch as they didn't compete in freestyle, the average freestyle score was only 18.59 for this World Finals event.
  • The Special Susan B. Colman Breast Cancer Madusa truck was run on El Matador's chassis.
  • This World Finals featured the debuts, returns and final appearances of many trucks in the event. Iron Man, Advance Auto Parts Grinder and Amsoil Shock Therapy made their debuts at this World Finals. In addition it was Gun Slinger's first World Finals since 2005 and Spider-Man's first since 2003. Taz, An Escalade, King Krunch and the original Blue Thunder all made their final appearances at the World Finals here as well.
