Monster Jam®, the most adrenaline charged motorsports experience on the planet, will roar into the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill., Feb. 17-20, for six action-packed shows. A perennial sell-out here, Monster Jam is celebrating 25 years of family entertainment during 2017.
Among three different Monster Jam tours scheduled to travel a combined 60,000 miles across the United States and Canada this year, the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series presented by AMSOIL can only be seen in select cities and features the most extreme athletes of Monster Jam. Chicago-area fans will witness a fierce battle for the championship with each competitor using customized high-powered vehicles: Monster Jam Speedsters, Monster Jam ATVs and the famous Monster Jam trucks.
The premier athletes vying to be Chicago champion are slated to be: 19-year-old Krysten Anderson, daughter of Monster Jam legend Dennis Anderson, driving the best-known Monster Jam truck of all time, the truck her father created in 1982, Grave Digger; Armando Castro driving crowd-favorite El Toro Loco; 20-year-old Camden Murphy from Itasca, Ill., driving Pirate’s Curse; Justin Sipes driving Megalodon; Bernard Light driving Alien Invasion; Ami Houde driving one of the sport’s most distinctive Monster Jam trucks, Zombie; JR Seasock driving the popular Monster Mutt Rottweiler, and Matt Cody driving Blue Thunder. Trucks and drivers are subject to change.
Approximately 12 feet tall and about 12 feet wide, Monster Jam trucks are custom-designed machines that sit atop 66-inch-tall tires and weigh a minimum of 10,000 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 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to125 to 130 feet in distance and up to 35 feet in the air.
Monster Jam events are affordably priced for the whole family with seats starting at $22. Tickets are available at ticketmaster.com and all Ticketmaster retail locations, the Allstate Arena box office, and by phone at (800) 745-3000.
