St. Louis Monster Jam Photos Online!

It was another crazy event at the St. Louis Monster Jam, and Josh Rhodes and Ed Hoormann were on hand for all the action. Two big news items came from the event. First in racing, Chad Fortune took Captain America to a big racing victory over Carl VanHorn in Grave Digger after VanHorn got up on two wheels in the final turn. It was all Grave Digger in freestyle, however, as both VanHorn and Adam Anderson in Grave Digger the Legend stole the show with amazing runs. The similarity in their runs? Each of them launched off of a dirt pad and came down partially on top of Kreg Christenson’s toppled Maximum Destruction truck. All trucks emerged safely afterwards, but the spectacular moments of the night lingered in the mind of drivers and spectators alike as they headed for the exits. Ed and Josh’s full photo galleries from the event are now online! Thanks to both of them and enjoy.
