HOT 107.9’s Monster Jam Truck Of The Day: ‘Predator’
As we get closer to Monster Jam playing at the Cajundome March 14th - 16th, we will highlight a different truck each day of the week. Listen to Chris Reed each weekday morning for the truck of the day, and then later that same day Digital will give you the chance to win tickets to the show if you can correctly identify the truck of the day. Monday's truck of the day is "Predator."
Here are some rather interesting facts about Monster Trucks:
Monster Jam trucks compete in two different competitions. Side-by-side competition and in the freestyle competition, my favorite. I love when the trucks "do their own thing" and crush cars.
Did you know that nearly 4 million fans will watch Monster Jam this year? Yes, it is a pretty popular show amongst many in our country.
The Monster Jam World Finals happens in Vegas and this competition will bring 32 of the best Monster Jam trucks from all over the world to compete. This is by invitation only.
The typical Monster Jam truck costs $600,000 yearly to build, staff, and maintenance.
Monster Jam trucks will crush nearly 6,000 cars in a year while on tour.
The average truck is 12' high and weighs close to 10,000 pounds. The trucks can reach close to 70 mph as it competes. Each truck's body is built of fiberglass and the truck can hold up to 22 gallons of fuel.
