Plus, fans can become part of the action by voting for the winner in the Skills Challenge and Freestyle competitions via real-time, in-stadium fan voting on their smartphones.
The all-star truck lineup will feature multiple fan favorites including Krysten Anderson in the legendary Grave Digger®, the truck that redefined the phrase “big air” and set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ title for the highest ramp jump in a monster truck. Team Great Clips Mohawk Warrior® newest driver, Elvis Lainez will aim to crush the competition in his new ride. Matt Pagliarulo returns in Jester while his son, Nick, gets behind the wheel on Kraken. Stone Crusher and Hooked round out this epic six-truck lineup.
Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills, and racing at speeds up to 70 miles-per-hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motorsports action seen around the world.
