Todd LeDuc's epic first jump

Monster Jam World Finals 15 was held on March 20th, 2014 at Sam Boyd Stadium. This was the first World Finals with 32 trucks, the first World Finals split into two days, and the first World Finals where the points could be given in .5 decimals.

Track Layout

For freestyle the track was a main dirt section which was a series of dirt hill jumps

Then a line which served as two backflip ramps and a laced car pad in the center

On the near end was a shipping container backflip ramp

  • The fastest qualifier was Grave Digger (Dennis Anderson)
  • Although part of the original 32 truck lineup, Titan did not compete in World Finals 15 on it's original chassis due to a major crash during qualifying that would call for a temporary new chassis, being BJ Johnson's Mohawk Warrior.
  • Man of Steel rolled after the finish in it's round one race. Randy Brown turn the truck hard while heading out the stadium and ended up rolling.
  • This would be the only World Finals with The Patriot as a competitor in the main event
  • Even though this was the first event to have 32 competitors, and individual competition days, the idea for such an event was announced by Monster Jam as early as 2004, with the plan for the event to first take place in 2007, 7 years earlier than it actually debuted.
