A thousand yards of dirt was loaded into Fiserv Forum late last week in preparation for the Monster Jam motor sport shows that took place over the weekend.

Fiserv Forum transformed into one of the most complex dirt tracks ever to be constructed by Monster Jam. Monster Jam’s exclusive premier dirt tracks are designed to test the expertise and vital dexterity required by competitors to skillfully maneuver their 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks throughout championship racing and gravity-defying freestyle competitions. The multifaceted track design also included 6-foot-high dirt ramps and non-dirt obstacles such as crush cars to deliver more spontaneous live motor sports action for Monster Jam fans than ever before.

Monster Jam competitors are trained at Monster Jam University in mastering the skills of driving Monster Jam trucks. Approximately 12 feet high and about 12 feet wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-high tires and weigh a minimum of 12,000 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 70 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.
