Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the Monster Trucks that will be smashing, jumping, and roaring here at the DCU Center this weekend.
One of the Advance Auto Parts most famous monster trucks, Grave Digger has been in the business of smashing things for quite some time, 30 years in 2012. Grave Digger made its debut in 1982 in North Carolina, and received its purple and green detailing in 1995. Grave Digger is possibly the loudest monster truck to be shown at the DCU Center this weekend. Grave Digger has a large rotation of truck drivers.
Driver Nicole Johnson made her monster truck driving debut in 2011, and her newest toy, Scooby Doo, just made its debut a month ago. She is one of the fastest rising monster truck drivers in the industry and paving the way as one of very few women who find themselves behind the wheel of these huge beasts. Scooby Doo is definitely a fun truck for the whole family to watch.
Storm Damage made its debut in Hagerstown, Maryland. Tim Mente starting competing with Storm Damage in 2007, the truck was retired and converted into another truck, Hurricane Force, and both trucks can be found performing stunts alongside one another in many of the Monster Jam competitions.
This superhero-based truck made its first debut as a promotional for the Iron Man 2 movie in 2010. Its tires are six-feet tall and its design was promotionally made to reflect the look of Iron Man and Stark industries. Lee O’Donnell and Morgan Kane switch off as competitors behind Iron Man’s wheel.
This electric, stormy themed truck made it’s official debut at the Houston Astrodome in 2001 and just celebrated its 10th anniversary a couple years back. Blue Thunder just received a new paint job and is debuting its new look during this year’s Monster Jam series. Driving for Blue Thunder is Dan Evans.
