Monster Jam World Finals

The Monster Jam World Finals is an annual monster truck event held late in March at Sam Boyd Stadium in the Las Vegas community of Whitney, Nevada. It is the championship event of the Monster Jam series, consisting of racing and freestyle competitions, with the winner of each considered the series champion in that competition for the past year. It is the highest profile monster truck event and draws tremendous media attention.

Originally 16 trucks were invited to compete in the event, but 20 trucks were selected in 2005, 24 selected in 2006-2012, 28 in 2013, and 32 trucks compete from 2014 onwards. Trucks and drivers are selected based on their performances over the winter season, from January into early March. When multiple drivers of the same team or truck are selected, they are typically placed in other trucks that travel with their primary vehicle, e.g. Pablo Huffaker won the 2007 Freestyle Championship driving Captain's Curse and Charlie Pauken won the 2010 Freestyle Championship in Monster Mutt. Many more trucks are invited for display at the "Pit Party" festivities during the event.

The stature of the event leads to extreme performances in both competitions. The racing track starts in the parking lot behind the locker rooms of the stadium, and features a long straight-away offering speeds over 70 mph before a hair-pin turn. The freestyle track layout is typically the most extreme all season, with several large and unique obstacles, often producing spectacular crashes. The event features 7 judges (1 for bonus points) with the lowest and highest scores discarded, for a maximum possible score of 45 (excluding tiebreakers), as opposed to 4 judges (1 for bonus points) for maximum possible score of 35 during the regular season.

Some fans consider the Monster Jam World Finals unfair, because its invitation-only participants are not officially selected based on performance scores earned during the prior season. Another controversy is that the event's parent company, FELD Motorsports, owns a majority of the trucks that are invited to participate. Additionally, most of the participant drivers are based in the United States. However, this selection bias is often countered by the fact that Monster Jam organises a world tour.

Usually, teams qualify for racing with no body on the chassis in order to escape damage from accidents during qualifying. However, from 2012, all teams had to qualify with full bodies on. Also starting in 2012, FELD Motorsports added a new competition to the World Finals where 8 competitors with no prior World Finals experience compete in racing for the title of Young Guns Shootout Champion. In 2013, the Young Guns Shootout field was expanded to 12 trucks, 14 trucks were invited in 2014, and 16 trucks are expected in 2015.
