Last year was the very first time we ever attended Monster Jam. Being as we’re a family of mostly girls (minus my hubby) it’s not really a thing we were ever big into, but we had the chance to go, and thought we’d take it, try something new. I’m so glad we did, we had a TON of fun!!
It’s crazy seeing these trucks go through their tricks, obstacles and driving around the track, crashing things, crushing things, and sometimes even themselves. Monster Jam is coming BACK to the Toledo Area to the Huntington Center March 4-6th.
Monster Jam® is blasting into 2016 with a new 10-city arena based, points-paying Monster Jam endurance showcase, featuring the biggest and best lineup of Monster Jam trucks highlighted by more of what the fans want to see…more racing, more freestyle, more donuts, more wheelies, more trucks, more action…#MoreMonsterJam!.
These select markets will also be treated to new competition vehicles such as extreme Monster Jam Speedsters and Monster Jam ATVs as they rip through the arenas during combative racing action. Headlining the tour will be eight of the best Monster Jam trucks and eight of the fiercest athletes competing against one another and against each Monster Jam branded trio of vehicles, to earn valuable points during each new event discipline.
How Monster Jam Events Work:
– At Monster Jam, monster trucks face off in two different forms of competition — side-by-side racing and freestyle:
Side-by-side racing – traditional bracket racing, where the first truck, with the least amount of penalties, crosses the finish line is declared the winner
Freestyle competition – allows drivers a limited amount of time on the open floor to show off their skills. In this category, the fans serve as the judge
– 2007 was the 25 year anniversary for the Grave Digger Team
– More than 4 million Monster Jam fans attend events each year worldwide
– The World Finals in Las Vegas, NV brings 24 of the top trucks in the world to compete for the World Freestyle and – – Racing Championships. Competitors are by invitation only.
– A monster truck race team will travel 45,000 Miles / 72,400 kilometers a year by land to attend events.
– Typical monster trucks cost $600,000 yearly to build, staff, compete, transport and maintain on the Monster Jam tour.
– Steel body full-size cars are the vehicles typically crushed during a monster truck event.
