MONSTER JAM Returns to Anaheim!

MONSTER JAM trucks are revving it up to go full throttle back into Angel Stadium of Anaheim for five events on January 11th & 25th and February 8th, 22nd & 23rd, 2020. It’s always an action-packed show, and 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 crazy their stunts were completed. Hint: Download the app to your phone so you can vote in real-time for your favorite truck in the two-wheel and freestyle competitions.

“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 motor sports action seen around the world.”

Helpful Tips! 

Sometimes the Monster Trucks are spotted around town. They are free to do and you can get photos with the truck and their driver. (Photo below was from four 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. 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. Closer is not always better. 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. Also, 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

(Source: Monster Jam’s website)

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.
