Thursday, March 26th, 2015...JR McNeal will compete in the Monster Jam World Finals Young Guns Shootout. He will again drive the AMALIE® Motor Oil XTERMIGATOR®. This will be his fourth time in the competition which allows drivers with little or no World Finals experience, a chance to compete in racing for the title of Young Guns Shootout Champion. JR competed in 2012 & 2013 driving RAZIN KANE® and again in 2014 in the AMALIE® Motor Oil XTERMIGATOR®. Read the Monster Jam odds HERE for the Young Guns Shootout. We want JR to join Bari Musawwir, Joey Sylvester and Mike Vaters Jr in winning the Young Guns Shootout. Come on!
The first night of competition at the Pensacola Bay Center in Florida.
Next on our tour was the Macon Centreplex in the beuautiful state of Georgia. To our left we have JR's highlights in the AMALIE® Motor Oil XTERMIGATOR® from the Saturday afternoon Monster Jam competition. He pulls down a 1st, 2nd and 3rd victory during this show. First place in the Obstacle Course, 2nd place Wheelie and 3rd place for Freestyle. Awesome stuff. Thank you Angie & Chris Thomas for the Macon, GA "Fan-Trifecta Photos". Angie & Chris took their two daughters (below) to the Macon AND Pensacola shows and that earns them all the title of "SuperFans", superfans that went home with JR's Obstacle Course win plaque! This is what it's all about. Look at that smile :)

So it will be written that the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is the home of the first JR McNeal, AMALIE® Motor Oil XTERMIGATOR® successful back flip. Kept on going! What a great freestyle. JR sits in the hot seat until Max-D gets past him. 2nd in freestyle for the night, it was awesome. Buddy had nice run too that night, WATCH HERE! And Roy continues his year with a run full of saves.
Raymond James Stadium was just as awesome as it always is in February. Click on each truck logo for highlights of Roy, Buddy and JR. #teamrkmts #ftw

Orlando 2015 was a great night for everyone. Central Florida is where we call home and it's great to see our hometown fans and family and super excited at everyone who made it out. We're showcasing Roy Pridgeon to our right here, his freestyle was awesome and he sat in the hot seat a bit! Above we have another "Fan Trifecta" photo...and even with a bonus fourth shot with Matt and Jester. Love it!
Make sure to check our JR's highlights at the New Citrus Bowl here on YouTube and also Buddy Tompkins here in RAZIN KANE®.
Miami proved to be a mechanical challenge for the team. The highlight of our night in Miami, Florida at the Sun Life Stadium was Roy Pridgeon's freestyle. Roy made sure we didn't leave empty handed, got a 24 and tied with the legendary Max-D. We had some of our Superfans come out in Miami too. We love seeing our regular fans each year. Dustin from Miami proves his Superfan-dom once again with his home made signs. We've been seeing him for a few years now. Read the official Monster Jam results of the Miami Florida show here at MonsterJam.com!
Things definitely were looking up once we got to San Antonio, TX at the Alamodome. We have Superfan Jose to the right, he started what I like to call the "Fan Photo Trifecta". We got a photo of Jose with each driver. We challenge all our fans to submit photos for our site here. The video above is from Saturday night, JR defeats the fastest qualifier, Captain's Curse, in round 1 racing and has a respectable freestyle to follow. Roy Pridgeon in the ICE CREAM MAN® and Buddy Tompkins in RAZIN KANE® have great freestyles on Saturday also. Click on the links to check them out on YouTube!
Buddy has a great freestyle above in RAZIN KANE®, ended up tying with JR in the XTERMIGATOR® with a freestyle score of 27. JR qualifies for racing but falls in round 1 and Roy has a solid freestyle scoring a 25. Houston was a great place to be, the fans were awesome and everyone really seems to love the new "3D Look" to the AMALIE® Motor Oil XTERMIGATOR®. Come on!
Rumor has it that the AMALIE® Motor Oil XTERMIGATOR®is getting a new 3D look for 2015. We cannot wait to unveil the new look for our 2nd year out with the XTERMIGATOR®. Amalie® Motor Oil is on board again this coming year and we couldn't be more proud and pleased to run with them. Lots a great stuff coming up this year. Be sure to also get your copy of THROW DOWN FOR WHAT? starring yours truly JR McNeal, Roy Pridgeon and Jimmy Walker and some death defyng monster truckin'. Great video by our friends at Monster Truck Throwdown!
The ICE CREAM MAN® Monster Truck had a little side trip in Deland at the birthday party of an old friend...well actually the grandson of an old friend, Emery C. Stewart. Had a great time and of course, all the kids LOVE the ICE CREAM MAN. And then it was right back to the shop for more work.
