9 Fun Facts about Monster Jam®
  1. Monster trucks are approximately 12’ tall, 12’ wide, 20’ long and weigh around 10,000 lbs. {they’re huge!!}
  2. Monster trucks have a fuel capacity of 22 gallons and a fuel economy of 7 gallons per mile. You read that right - 7 gallons to go 1 mile!!
  3. Each truck has a Remote Ignition Interrupter (RII) so that track officials can shut off a truck at any time.{safety first!!}
  4. Typical monster trucks cost $600,000 yearly to build, staff, compete, transport and maintain on the Monster Jam® tour.
  5. Monster truck race teams travel over 45,000 miles by land each year to attend events. {it’s only 3,200 miles from California to Maine to put that in perspective!!}
