Monster Jam is a car crushin', dirt throwin', tire spinnin', truck jumpin' fun for all. 

We're particular fans of Chi-town's own George Balhan, Mohawk Warrior driver & dad!

George Balhan: I spend a lot of time with my kids. We’re gone so much that when I’m home I just like to hang out with them. My kids ride dirt bikes now; so when I’m around we’ll go dirt bike riding. Other than that, I enjoy hanging out and doing normal family things.  (

Monster Jam stars the biggest performers on four wheels and they're coming for YOU.  Come celebrate Monster Jam’s 30th anniversary of Grave Digger!

ChiIL Tips:

Pit Passes are limited get those in advance or you may miss out. has 3 Advance Auto Parts truck display locations listed where you check 'em out the Thursday before the show.  Got decent seats?!  Ear protection highly recommended for all and necessary for kids.   They do sell over the ear, muff style earplugs for the kids there that look like Monster truck tires. Cute for the littles, but I'm not sure how much sound they block.  

As we wrote last year...helpful hint:   Bring ear protection.   Eh, what was that?    I said, you'll be regretting not throwing in earplugs for everyone.   What?! I can't hear you over the deafening roar of those powerful truck engines.   I SAID....BRING EARPLUGS!  YOU CAN BUY SOME FUN TIRE SHAPED ONES ON SITE FOR $20, BUT IF YOU'D RATHER SPEND THE CASH ON A COOL SHIRT YOU CAN WEAR MORE OFTEN OR A CREEPY SNO CONE CUP, THEN BRING YOUR OWN EARPLUGS.

Disclaimer:  Thanks to FELD and Monster Jam for providing tickets for our giveaway and review purposes.
