Monster Jam Will Rock You! #monsterjam

Disclosure: I received media tickets to attend Monster Jam at Angels Stadium. All opinions are my own.

This weekend I took the family to see Monster Jam for the very first time.
It was so much fun!!!!
I had never been to Monster Jam before and neither had my kids, so it was a new
experience for most of us.
When I envisioned Monster Jam I thought it would be big giant trucks
rolling over smaller cars and maybe even one another.
I had no idea that the monster trucks raced each other and then did freestyle tricks.

There were several rounds of Monster Jam racing where the monster truck
race in pairs to try and defeat one another so they can qualify for the next round.
It got pretty intense sometimes with trucks stalling out at the last minute, getting flat
tires or running into the obstacles. It was never dull and you were always wondering
if your favorite would move on!

The winner of Monster Jam racing was Mohawk Warrior.
I love the mohawk on the top of this monster truck and it was a big hit with JT.

It was even cooler when the driver, George Balhan, got out of his truck and he had a mohawk!
I didn't realize what a cult following the trucks and drivers have and how 
interactive the drivers try to be with the audience.
When George won, he took his Monster Jam trophy out to the audience and
gave it to one of his biggest fans. So cool!

After the racing portion is the freestyle and if I thought the racing was exciting,
the freestyle was crazy!!!!!! There were monster trucks trying tricks
and stunts all over the place, with several landing upside down or crashing
and taking themselves out of the running because they were on FIRE!
JT especially loved this portion of Monster Jam and really got into cheering.

Grave Digger captured the win in the Monster Jam Fox Sports 1  Freestyle Competition.
It was so cool to see Grave Digger compete. I remember hearing about this legendary
monster truck when I was a kid growing up, but since I'd never been to Monster Jam,
I never knew just how awesome it was!

If you miss Monster Jam at Angels Stadium this past weekend, you're in luck!

We are all going to the next show! My older boys and Ryan went last year, so it will be fun for us girlies (and Derek) to tag along! :)
