MONSTER JAM Returns to Anaheim!

This is a sponsored post.

After a two year hiatus, MONSTER JAM trucks are revving it up to go full throttle back into Angel Stadium of Anaheim for three full weekends (January 22 & 23; February 19 & 20 and February 26 & 27, 2022) just in time to celebrate their 30 year anniversary! Get ready for an action-packed show as you’ll never know when they will make that backflip or recover after they spin out of control. They’ll be judged by not only speed, but how daring their stunts were completed. 

Show Information:

“Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles-per-hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motorsports action seen around the world.

“SoCal motorsports fans will witness heated rivalries, high-flying stunts and fierce head-to-head battles for the Event Championship.  Engineered to perfection, the 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks push all limits going head-to-head for points in Freestyle, Skills, Donuts and Racing competitions.  The Stadium Series Champion will receive a highly coveted automatic bid to the prestigious Monster Jam World Finals® to compete for the title of World Champion, scheduled for May 2022 in Orlando.

“The all-star Anaheim Stadium Championship Series features 12 skilled athletes fighting for the championship while putting on a spectacle, constantly innovating and always entertaining.  Five-time Monster Jam World Finals champion Adam Anderson gets behind the wheel of the legendary black and green wrecking machine Grave Digger®, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.  2020 Triple Threat Central Series® champion Colton Eichelberger, representing team Max-D™, makes his Stadium Championship Series debut.  Charlie Pauken returns to his roots driving Monster Mutt®, the truck he drove when he claimed the 2010 Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Championship.  GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ title holder Bryce Kenny in Great Clips Mohawk Warrior®, aims to crush the competition against Megalodon®, the truck that redefined the phrase ‘jumping the shark’ and set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD title for the most monster trucks jumped by a monster truck, driven by Cory Rummell.  Military veteran Kayla Blood in Soldier Fortune™ and 2019 Rising Star driver Camden Murphy in Bakugan Dragonoid™ also look to lock in the championship.  While family rivalry pits two-time Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Champion Jim Koehler in Avenger against his own son Chris Koehler driving the fire truck themed AXE.”

Monster Jam Pit Party

At the Monster Jam® Pit Party, you can see the massive trucks up close, meet your favorite drivers, get autographs, take pictures and enjoy other family-friendly activities. It’s an unforgettable part of the Monster Jam experience where lifelong fans are born. Pit Passes are available for $20 for this VIP experience.

Helpful Tips! 

Sometimes the Monster Trucks are spotted around town. They are free and you can get photos with the truck and their driver. (Photo below was from six years ago when Max-D was at a Jiffy Lube in Orange. It’s my kid’s absolute favorite!) I also recommend bringing something to protect your ears like noise cancelling headphones or earplugs. I found some very inexpensive noise reduction earmuffs for the children at Harbor Freight in the safety section for $2.99. They have other options available too. Closer is not always better. We didn’t have any problems bringing in our DSLR’s but you’ll need a zoom lens to capture close-ups of cars in the air. We have had seats on both lower and upper levels. We have fun every time, but you can’t see the whole track when you are on the lower levels. Additionally, they do not have the same trucks at every event so if you have a favorite truck or driver you’re expecting to see, be sure to check out the line-up beforehand.

Driver Safety

Monster Jam drivers are trained athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles per hour. The Monster Jam trucks are designed to protect the driver at all times. A specially-constructed roll cage is built to house the driver, who is often sitting directly in the middle. Specially constructed seats that mold to the driver’s shape allow the work to be done with minimal distraction. A five-point harness is mounted securely to the truck to help hold the driver in position. The truck includes a receiver for a Remote Ignition Interrupter (RII). A signal can be transmitted to the truck by way of a special radio, which will shut off the engine. Each truck has a secondary on-off switch located at the rear on the frame. Other safety features are designed, built and mandated to keep the truck safe and operational. Each driver is equipped with specified safety gear, starting with the custom fitted fire resistant driving suit. The suits offer a minimum of three layers of protection. The helmet meets Snell Foundation regulations for fire-resistance while serving as part of the head-and-neck restraint system, which includes a tested and approval harness system. The drivers’ hands are protected by flame-resistant gloves which have a tacky grip side for steering wheel control. The drivers’ feet are protected by special fire resistant shoes that also include a thin sole for optimal throttle and brake control.
