Monster Jam World Finals 8 was held on March 24, 2007 in Sam Boyd Stadium. This would be the first year a double bus jump was utilized, this would be the debut of Captain's Curse, the first show of Dennis Anderson driving in 2007 with the only appearance of a chrome 25th Anniversary Grave Digger and the final show for Dan Evans' second Destroyer truck. This would also be the first World Finals to include coverage on CBS along with the SPEED Channel coverage.

Interestingly, this World Finals was planned to be the very first time 32 trucks would be invited, with days dedicated to racing and freestyle, as announced in 2004. However, for unknown reasons, this idea was scrapped, and postponed for 7 years.

Halftime Freestyle Encore


2 Grave Diggers During The Halftime Encore

Halfway through freestyle, two Grave Diggers raced onto the course, and performed a Donut competition. Dennis, winning did victory donuts, only for George Balhan in An Escalade to race out onto the track show off a bit himself. This encore wasn't shown on the TV broadcasts, nor the DVD release.

Freestyle encore from all the rest of Team Grave Digger.


  • Ironically, a similar racing crash to TMNT's at this event would take place exactly ten years later at Monster Jam World Finals 18 when Becky McDonough's El Toro Loco crashes in racing. But since the World Finals format had been changed three years before 2017, they had enough time to repair El Toro Loco in order for it to compete for freestyle the next day.
  • This would be the only World Finals appearance of Courtney Jolly as a competitor
  • As mentioned above, Monster Jam intended this event to start the trend of having 32 competitors and individual competition days. For unknown reasons, this didn't happen yet until 2014.
