Monster Jam is the most exciting form of family motorsports entertainment on the planet. The stars of the show are the biggest performers on four wheels: the Monster Jam trucks! Approximately 12-ft. tall and about 12-ft. wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 pounds. Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, Monster Jam trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to 125 to 130 feet (a distance greater than 14 cars side by side) and up to 35 feet in the air.
Fan-favourite trucks slated to appear will be led by Canada's very own dedicated Monster Jam truck Northern Nightmare driven by Cam McQueen, the Monster Jam 2012 World FinalsSM Freestyle Champion. Northern Nightmare will compete against 11 trucks including Scooby Doo, making its Canadian debut, plus Grave Digger®, Monster Mutt Dalmatian, Max D®, El Toro Loco, Mohawk Warrior, Mega Bite, Spike, Aftershock, Krazy Train and Shell Camino. Trucks are subject to change without notice.
