It’s January, and that means it’s time to get the year rolling in a BIG way: monster trucks are coming back! Each year around this time, Monster Jam, the fun, all-ages monster truck show, comes to our area. Tickets now are on sale for the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series presented by AMSOIL®, the adrenaline-charged motorsports experience for families. The shows take place January 28-29, 2017, at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. We’ve got all the details for you, plus a chance to win tickets to a show!
At these exciting events, fans will see competitions using customized high-powered vehicles: Monster Jam Speedsters, Monster Jam ATVs, and of course the famous Monster Jam trucks. The scheduled premier athletes and vehicles vying to be the nation’s capital champion are: Grave Digger, El Toro Loco, Pirate’s Curse, Shark, Alien Invasion, Zombie, Monster Mutt Rottweiler, and Blue Thunder.
Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet 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 125-130 feet in distance and up to 35 feet in the air. Seeing these vehicles in action is quite a sight!
