Tearing It Up
From the Series Dirt and Destruction Sports Zone
Do you know what it’s like to drive a truck that is as big as an elephant? Despite their giant size, monster trucks can pull off soaring jumps, flips, and other epic stunts. These trucks compete head-to-head to reveal the fastest and the most agile of them all. Events such as the Monster Jam World Finals keep the crowds on the edges of their seats.
Enter the Dirt and Destruction Sports Zone to learn about the history, mechanics, rules, and the trailblazing drivers connected to monster trucks. You’ll learn:
• How race organizers create a track with plastic, plywood, and lots of dirt.
• What gear and strategies drivers use to protect themselves.
• Who pulled off some of the wildest moves in monster truck history.
• What it’s like to crush a row of cars beneath a monster truck’s enormous tires.
