Ever fancied taking a look under the bonnet to find out exactly what happens behind the scenes at the extravaganza that is Monster Jam?
Star drivers B.J. Johnson and Coty Saucier took Fox News on a guided tour of the Monster Jam World Headquarters at Feld Entertainment Studios in Palmetto, Florida to show off the immense and technologically-advanced facilities they use to build and fine-tune their Monster Jam trucks.
“Starting in the early 90s, trucks were just pickup trucks with leaf springs and little-bitty shocks,” Saucier said. “Now, the shocks take anywhere between 300 to 400 pounds of nitrogen pressure, and that’s the biggest game-changer in Monster Jam ever.”
