Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, monster trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds up to 100 MPH. Monster trucks can “fly” up to 125 ft. (a distance greater than 14 cars side-by-side) and up to 35 ft. in the air.
Monster Jam, sanctioned by the United States Hot Rod Association®, is the most popular monster truck tour, performing to over four million fans annually at the most prestigious arenas and stadiums throughout the world. Monster Jam shows consist of three main elements – the all-access pit party, with the main event consisting of racing and freestyle competitions.
