Monster Jam World Finals 7 was held on March 25, 2006 at Sam Boyd Stadium. This would be the first World Finals to have 24 trucks and the first of two World Finals with one defending champion, to not compete (as Madusa was dropped from Monster Jam before the World Finals). This would also be the last time that Monster Jam used the American flag seat protection.
