2017 Stadium Lineups
The 2017 Monster Jam® season could become the most competitive ever. The arena tour lineups have been announced and fans are eagerly awaiting news regarding stadium appearances.
After two years with just one tour, Monster Jam has expanded to offer the FS1 East Series and FS1 West Series. The competitors will accumulate performance points at each stop with the series champion getting an automatic spot in Monster Jam World Finals® XVIII.
That’s good news for defending Monster Jam World Racing Champion Morgan Kane, who joins FS1 East in Grave Digger® after two years competing in arenas. He’ll have some familiar competition as Brianna Mahon in Scooby-Doo!TM will be a part of the series. Eleven-time World Champion Tom Meents will lead the group of seasoned competitors who will take a shot at this prestigious championship.
Defending FS1 champion and current Monster Jam World Freestyle champion Adam Anderson will be a part of the lineup on FS1 West. 2015 FS1 champion Neil Elliott brings Max-DTM to this lineup, pitting the only champions in the history of the FS1 Series head-to-head each week.
Former and defending champions will find a number of competitors standing in their way in 2017 as the lineups for each tour are packed with experienced competitors.
