The first Monster Jam in 1995 featured the original monster truck, Bigfoot. Performances at Monster Jam are a multilayered affair with the various competitors facing off against each other in racing, stunts and plenty of other attractions. For an added layer of fun and excitement, audience members get to decide the winners of several contests. With drivers competing in various venues all across the world, there are many opportunities to see Monster Jam events live throughout the year. Winter locations include indoor venues such as the Oakland Coliseum in California and the PPL Center in Allentown, Pa.

What events do drivers compete in at a Monster Jam?
Monster Jam is generally broken down into three events: Racing, two-wheel skills and freestyle driving. Racing is further divided into two categories. One type of race is timed racing, where a driver has to navigate an obstacle course while trying to make the best time, and the other is head-to-head racing, where drivers speed over a track without obstacles as they try to cross the finish line first. Two-wheel skills refer to contests between trucks that feature drivers performing tricks while making sure at least two wheels are in the air. For freestyle events, drivers get two minutes each to do as they like in order to impress the audience with their creativity and skill as they push their trucks to the limit with flips, bounces, rolls and dramatic jumps over long lines of vehicles. Additionally, there may be changes or additions to a particular event's list of contests. One of the more common competitions is a challenge to see which driver can perform the most donuts — rotating the truck as many times and as quickly as possible — in a given amount of time.
What is it like to attend a Monster Jam event?
Monster Jam is a high-octane affair filled with passion coming from both fans and drivers. Fireworks, light shows, music and more are all a part of the show as the towering trucks drive around the dirt. While seating depends on the venue, many Monster Jam events at indoors and put the fans as close to the action as is possible, leaving only a few yards between the seats and the track. Prior to the main event, Monster Jam hosts a Pit Party where fans can meet with drivers, explore the track, and see the trucks up close.
What are the Monster Jam World Finals?
The Monster Jam World Finals is a competition pitting the best drivers and meanest trucks against one another. Started in 2000, the World Finals would be considered the equivalent of the Super Bowl in terms of the level of talent displayed during the event. Certain drivers who work in Monster Jam will be given the invitation to compete in this event based on the awards and recognition they received throughout the last season.
When was the first Monster Jam?
The history of Monster Jam spans several decades. The original Monster Jam started in 1995 as a combination of various monster truck events that took place before it. The monster truck spectacular was known only as the United States Hot Rod Association's Mud & Monster Series until 1995, when the name Monster Jam was fully adopted by 1995.
