Creten and Meents Take St. Louis Monster Jam!

The Monster Jam tour returned to St. Louis, Missouri and the Edward Jones Dome for a night of monster truck action. Our own Josh Rhodes was there to cover the action of the star studded field. The racing finals came down to Jimmy Creten in Bounty Hunter and Tony Farrell behind the wheel of Blue Thunder. Creten had already beaten Blue Thunder once before but Farrell fought back and beat Tom Meents and Maximum Destruction after getting the fast loser but Creten would take the Racing win. Freestyle included many highlights like the team CSK trucks both rolling in their freestyle runs, Tony Farrell getting some huge air off of the car stack and Tom Meents pulling out what may be a contender for save of the year.
