Monster Jam Background Info
Monster truck racing is a southern American tradition where the aim is to create the biggest, meanest truck possible and then compete against other people's homemade creations. The popularity of monster truck racing grew throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Due to the huge demand for recognition, Monster Jam was created to showcase this motorsport. The first Monster Jam show was aired on television in April 2005.
In the early days of Monster Jam, a truck called Grave Digger was the best known of the competing trucks. This was built and driven by Dennis Anderson. Images of this green and black truck were used in the promotional materials of Monster Jam and became a symbol of this nail biting motorsport. Dennis Anderson and Grave Digger became heroes to fans of Monster Jam and their displays in freestyle competitions were known as some of the most daring and spectacular on the monster truck scene.
Fans of Monster Jam were keen for the event organisers to come up with a way of officially naming the best monster truck in the competitions. This resulted in the creation of the Monster Jam World Finals in 2000. Monster truck enthusiasts were soon flocking to buy Monster Jam tickets for the Monster Jam World Final events.
Monster Jam Big Achievements
It came as no surprise to spectators of the first Monster Jam World Final when Grave Digger, driven by Dennis Anderson, won the freestyle competition. More surprising was that this duo did not win the racing events. The title for this was taken by a rising star called Tom Meents in his Team Meents truck.
Like all sports, new monster truck stars come along and become greater legends than those who went before them. John Seasock driving Batman reined in the racing element of the Monster Jam World Finals in both 2007 and 2008. In the same years, the freestyle element of the competition was won by Adam Anderson, the son of Dennis Anderson, driving his Taz truck.
The Monster Jam events continue to attract huge numbers of spectators and the competitions are just as electrifying as ever before. If you want to spectate during one of these amazing competitions, then make sure you get your Monster Jam tickets early to avoid disappointment.
