Monster Truck Tickets
A Monster Truck is a giant four wheel drive automobile that is constructed to imitate a blown-up truck. These automobiles have extremely huge wheels and suspensions and are popularly known for competitive racing and, more recently, for solo freestyle events at various racing shows. Apart from races, these shows are immensely popular for events that involve huge Monster Trucks ruthlessly crushing smaller cars, overcoming various impediments in the track and staging various jumps and artful spinning manoeuvres. Monster Trucks event planners, most notably the Monster Jam, schedule tours all over the United States as well as Canada and the Europe.

There was a general trend in the 1970s to organize sports events that involved giant, unconventional heavy duty vehicles. Soon, a competition emerged among those involved in such endeavors to develop the biggest truck of all. But the phenomenon of giant trucks exhibiting their might by crushing metal underneath their gigantic tyres had still not arrested commercial attention. In 1981, Bob Chandler a construction worker modified one of his four wheel drive trucks and ran it over smaller vehicles to highlight its 4WD power. Chandlerís giant truck named the "Bigfoot" is said to be among the first monster trucks that came into being. †Chandler also recorded this performance to publicize the work of his 4WD performance enterprise. An event planner came across this video clip and urged Chandler to repeat this stunt in front of a crowd. The act appeared to be a crowd pleaser. These performances caught the eye of motorsports fans as well as owners of motorsports companies which led to a greater commercialization of Monster Truck shows. Eventually, in 1985 major motorsports promoting companies like TNT Motorsports and United States Hot Rod Association (USHRA) started organizing Monster Truck races on a regular basis. As the trend for Monster Truck related sports gained popularity there emerged an ever increasing need for standardization and codifying safety protocols. Consequently, Monster Truck Racing Association (MTRA) came into being in 1988 that now regulates the industry and establishes and monitors rules.
Monster Trucks are renowned not for their driver or their owner but for the persona that they possess themselves. This persona is best reflected in the various interesting names that are given to them. This includes names such as "Bigfoot", "Grave Digger" and "King Krunch". Some trucks also take on the guise of popular characters like "Superman" and "King Kong". It is the personality of the trucks themselves, rather than their drivers that attract a fan following. Monster Truck tickets for an all new season are out now for all the frenzied fans.
