Monster Jam fans are extremely loyal, and they enjoy unprecedented access to the stars of the show – the performers and their Monster Jam trucks. Unlike traditional sporting events or other family entertainment shows, every fan attending a Monster Jam event is given the unique opportunity to meet the stars of the show during the pre-show Party in the Pits and post-show autograph sessions. The stars of Monster Jam will stay until the last autograph is signed. For decades, Monster Jam has been one of the biggest and most successful touring family shows in the world, and it is still showing yearly growth in all areas! The Evolution of Monster Jam Trucks The first “monster trucks” emerged as sideshow attractions at tractor pulling events in the United States. In the beginning, they merely drove slowly over old cars – nothing like the high-flying, highspeed action of today’s Monster Jam trucks. Nonetheless, at the time, this stunt was outrageous and bold, and the fans were amazed. Over the next few years, technology and driving skills improved. The development of Monster Jam truck motors and suspensions mirrored the improving abilities of the drivers. Rules were created, safety procedures were enhanced and soon the focus of the event organizers turned to racing these beasts. In a short time, these monster truck performances began to distinguish themselves from their tractor pulling origins. The demand grew for more Monster Jam truck racing and the first Monster Jam event was born. The amazing Monster Jam trucks were finally the star attraction. The fans loved them, and as the crowds grew, so did the sport. Monster Jam soon became the hottest family entertainment tour in the country. As more fans crowded into the biggest stadiums in the U.S. to see Monster Jam every year, the event continued to evolve, as did the racing machines themselves. Steel bodies were replaced by fiberglass, and the old 16,500 pound trucks slimmed down to 10,000 pounds. High-octane alcohol fuel now powered the massive engines. But the most important technological advancement was the introduction of oversized, nitrogen-filled shock absorbers in the suspension systems. Early Monster Jam trucks were equipped with steel leaf springs and small shock absorbers. This revolutionary new suspension technology allowed the trucks to jump high over the obstacles and at much higher speeds. These new shock absorbers helped launch what has become the signature of Monster Jam – the high-horsepower acrobatic chaos known as Monster Jam freestyle competition. Freestyle is perhaps the most challenging and exciting part of the show. Depending on the stadium or arena, each Monster Jam truck will get 60 or 90 seconds to freestyle and bring the fans to their feet in a mechanical ballet of spectacularly high jumps and frenzied maneuvering. Cars, busses, caravans, boats, large trucks and even airplanes may show up on the track as obstacles for the Monster Jam trucks to tackle. Using these unfortunate metal victims, the Monster Jam trucks crash, jump, fly and weave their way around the track, often on only one or two wheels, all while under the careful control of the driver, who pushes their truck to its limits with its twin steering systems, 1,500 horsepower racing motors and high-impact suspensions. Monster Jam freestyle is the evolutionary result of decades of development and improvement, and it has become a fan favorite around the world.
