Monster Jam World Finals 9 was held on March 28-29, 2008 at Sam Boyd Stadium. This would be the first World Finals with a triple bus jump, and the first one with a second generation champion driver. This would also be the second one without a defending champion as due to disagreements, Pablo Huffaker did not run this World Finals to defend his title but would return the following year.
