Feld Entertainment announced changes to the Monster Jam World Finals 18 at Sam Boyd Stadium March 23-24, 2018.
"In an effort to evolve and improve the Monster Jam World Finals fan experience, Double Down activities, traditionally taking place on Thursday, have been incorporated into the Friday schedule. The Double Down ShowdownTM, featuring 16 Monster Jam trucks competing for the final spot in the Monster Jam World Finals, will now be included in the Friday night competition prior to the Racing Championship." - from Monster Jam at www.monsterjam.com
"Double Down fans will now enjoy the exclusive Pit Party access, BBQ and a track walk on Friday 10:00am-2:30pm, prior to the Pit Party opening to the public. In addition to these experiences, Double Down fans will continue to receive a commemorative Double Down T-shirt, cap, credential, and lanyard, and the best seats in the house as part of their Double Down package." - from Monster Jam at www.monsterjam.com
What it doesn't mention is if there will be qualifying for the Monster Jam Racing field. More details to follow, but it does seem that Feld Entertainment is trying to compress a three day event into two days.
