Later in 2022, Mark would unexpectedly return to Monster Jam, making his stadium tour debut on Stadium Series Red. For the first show in San Antonio, he would shock the field by winning both overall event wins during the weekend. Following that, he would have a lot of ups and downs during the season, but it would ultimately be a successful season for him, finishing 6th on the series, and getting an invite to World Finals XXI, where he would perform well, getting a first round bye in racing at making it to Round 3, and finishing 5th in freestyle, famously completing a backflip to moonwalk and almost making it up the middle ramp. Because of his success, he would continue to drive for post-first quarter shows during the summer. He also plans to drive Max-D for a select international show in San Juan.

​Trivia

  • He stared out his career with Monster Jam as a track construction crew member, before being chosen to train as a Monster Jam driver.
  • It is believed his first truck was Spider-Man due to the announcer in a press conference video for the 2014 Costa Rica events saying a name that sounds similar to his. Finally the driver was revelaed to be Scott Liddycoat instead. He would later be invited to drive El Diablo the next year, however due to his religion beliefs with the truck, he declined.
  • Despite being Costa Rican, he speaks with an American accent, due to having moved to several places around the world as a track construction crew member and a traducer in some shows. He spoke his native Spanish language when he participated in Monster Jam's 2018 Costa Rica events. These shows would be considered "coming home" shows for Mark.
  • At New Orleans 2022, Mark would run a ran a Kermit the Frog plush, usually brought to shows by @avengersracing.
