A packed out Millennium Stadium wowed world famous monster truck Grave Digger at the third consecutive Monster Jam event in Cardiff last weekend – attracting close to 30,000 enthusiastic spectators to the popular family spectacle.

Twelve of the world’s most famous monster trucks, including Maximum Destruction®, Grave Digger®, Monster Mutt®, Swamp Thing, Nitro Circus, Batman, monster truck, Madusa®, El Toro Loco®, Backwards Bob and Disney XD barrelled into Cardiff to perform a series of timed side-by-side competitions and a wild freestyle finale.

A sell-out pit party preceded Saturday’s show, where fans filled the Stadium bowl to get their autographs and photos before the favourite fast and fierce monster trucks ripped through the track.

The popular Grave Digger took top honours of the evening with a score of 28, edging past Nitro Circus who finished second with a score of 26. Driver Charlie Pauken said: "I was really happy with the way things turned out. I promised my son I’d do a donut as part of the performance, and I remembered to work that in near the end of my run.

"The crowds seemed to enjoy it. All the drivers enjoy playing the Millennium Stadium because we have the space to let loose and show what our trucks can do.

"The fans in Cardiff really made us feel welcome and that always gets us charged up to give it our all."

Millennium Stadium representative Alex Luff, said, "It’s great to have Monster Jam back in Cardiff. They have a loyal base of fans here and they always put on a spectacular show."
