Monster Jam World Finals 4 was held on March 22, 2003 at Sam Boyd Stadium. This would be the first World Finals shown on SPEED, the first World Finals in which Tom Meents didn't get at least one championship, and the first World Finals in which Dennis Anderson did not compete, as he was recovering from a broken hand. Pablo Huffaker would compete for him in Grave Digger.
Such an incident would not happen again until 14 years later at Monster Jam World Finals 18, in which Dennis would not compete due to internal injuries, except in this case, Tom Meents would also be out due to an injury.
A good amount of fans who were in attendance had negative thoughts on this event comparing it from the year before.
The racing track was the same as last years, with the freestyle track including two buses facing longways in the center, a rail car and a 30 foot tall trailer on the right side, two campers added to the left lane, a rock pile and dumpster truck on the right side, and a bus and trailer on a bed in the right lane.
