In all of motorsports, each form has its one event that is bigger than any other. The Indy 500, Daytona 500, Grand Prix of Monaco, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans are racing's marquee events for open-wheel, sports car, and NASCAR.
But, when you are a fan of monster trucks, no event compares to the one put on by the United States Hot Rod Association at Sam Boyd Stadium.
The NGK Spark Plugs Monster Jam World Finals is an event that is months in the making. Several huge stadium events throughout the country lead to this one moment for 24 of the best trucks and drivers in the sport. This is Monster Jam's version of the Daytona 500.
This year was the 11th annual event at this venue, and I was lucky enough to land a seat for the two-day extravaganza. So, let's take an inside look at what the World Finals was all about.
