The meteoric rise of an extreme motorsport
Monster truck events date back to the late 1970s and early 1980s, when huge, modified pickup trucks began racing and performing stunts like crushing cars as a side event to mud bogging, motocross or truck-pulling events. Gradually, however, the popularity of these vehicular beasts became so large and widespread that monster truck is now an event series in its own right. New suspension systems and shock absorbers were introduced, not to mention modified safety features and a whole host of small tweaks that have turned the trucks from modified pick-ups into purpose-built vehicles: the main requirement for a competition is that they are twelve feet wide, twelve feet tall and fitted with specially made off-road tires of 66 inches. Brightly coloured and emblazoned with their team emblems, monster trucks have a personality of their own and will come up time and again at events - the vehicles themselves are usually even more legendary than their drivers. See iconic trucks like Grave Digger, Devastator, Wonder Woman or Monster Mutt when you get monster truck tickets and attend a thrilling event.
Cheer on your favourite monster truck driver
Monster truck events are typically divided into two competition types: racing, in which two trucks compete against each other on a small circuit full of wicked hairpin turns, and freestyling, in which one truck at a time performs a series of incredible tricks. You might get to see a monster truck backflip, a car-crushing sequence, use of obstacles and high ramps to perform stunning aerial jumps, high-speed doughnuts and even a wheelie or two. Back in 2017, talented monster truck driver Tyler Menninga made history by performing the first nose wheelie to last more than a minute, sending himself and the truck Grave Digger down in competition history. From Monster Jam events to Monster X or the acclaimed Monster Truck Nationals, there's a whole range of thrilling events at which you can get down and dirty with these impressive vehicles. Feel the heat of the competition, experience the roar of the engines, watch dirt fly and cheer for new records broken as the talented driver teams show just what these powerful trucks can do. Fans of motorsports should not delay: buy or sell monster truck tickets on StubHub now.
