When it was announced that Ryan Anderson was part of the line-up for the Rogers Centre this weekend, fans were pumped to see how the youngest Anderson would do. With the kick-off event to the 2014 Maple Leaf Monster Jam tour in the books, Anderson has proven the hype is there for the right reason.

Anderson would put his Son UVA Digger truck at the top of the heap for the qualifying session with a time of 20.850 seconds, and keep it solid throughout all of racing to take home the victory.

There were a couple incidents during racing as a couple trucks spun out during either their qualifying lap or race. Also, Lloyd Twitchell went for a tight left turn with Krazy Train and sent the train over on it’s roof, ripping the body off.


As mentioned, the night started off each truck going up against the clock, posting the quickest lap possible. In the end, here are the times….

  1. Ryan Anderson in Son UVA Digger at 20.85
  2. Neil Elliott in Maximum Destruction at 20.88
