It was 13 long months since monsters last invaded the Minneapolis Metrodome, and it was worth the wait. Under a full house in Minnesota, the big winners were Monster Magic’s Morgan Kane and Son-Uva Digger, driven by Ryan Anderson. The big story heading into the event was that it was another triple Anderson event, with Dennis (Grave Digger), Ryan (Son-Uva Digger), and Adam (Grave Digger The Legend) all competing at the same venue.

Racing was a course that varied from round to round, with dirt conditions making claim to plenty of victims. Some spun out, others hooked tacky patches and rolled over. With this environment, consistency was key. It turned out to be a night for the young guns from North Carolina. Kane was able to pull off the biggest racing victory of his career, with an 18.66-second pass to Ryan Anderson’s 18.69. Kane was a gracious victor and obviously very excited about his victory, which translated into a solid freestyle as well. The Anderson brothers would steal the show in freestyle, with spectacular runs that ended within a point of each other. When the dust settled, Son-Uva-Digger was declared the champion. Other notable runs included Stone Crusher, El Matador, and El Toro Loco. It was a wild night once again in Minneapolis, setting the stage for a fantastic 2012 season, and also the return of the monsters to Minneapolis in January.
