I surprised my son with Monster Jam tickets at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro Massachusetts. Here is what happens when you go to Monster Jam.

Monster Jam is a live motorsport event tour and television show operated by Feld Entertainment.[1] The series is sanctioned under the umbrella of the United States Hot Rod Association (USHRA) and takes place primarily in the United States. Although individual event formats can vary greatly based on the “intermission” entertainment, the main attraction is always the racing and freestyle competitions by monster trucks.

Here are the trucks that competed at Foxboro
El Toro Loco
Gas Monkey Garage
Grave Digger
Lucas Oil Crusader
Monster Mutt Dalmatian
Son-uva Digger
Team Hot Wheels Firestorm
VP Racing Mad Scientist

At Monster Jam shows, monster trucks face off in two different forms of competition – Racing and Freestyle. In the smaller shows they have a wheelie competition and / or a donut contest. The goal in the wheelie competition is to hit a ramp and get big air while remaining perpendicular to the ground.

In the donut competition a driver tries to spin their truck until he/she gets dizzy, the truck can’t go any more, or they think they have a high enough score to win. Side-by-side racing is traditional heads-up tournament racing, where the first truck to cross the finish line moves onto the next round until it is eliminated or wins the racing trophy by winning the Championship race.

The freestyle competition allows drivers two minutes on an open floor to show off their skills as they drive the trucks over cars, and doing stunts and tricks with their trucks. The freestyle winner is determined by 6 judges each giving a score out of 10. The high and the low scores are dropped that the fans gave. The max score is 40. There are two winners from both events, however if the same person that won racing that night also won freestyle that night then they get the biggest trophy, next to the world finals trophy, the Double Down trophy, named after the Double Down activities in Las Vegas at the Monster Jam World Finals.

    Been watching a few of your videos the past couple of days, absolutely loving the feel good vibe of these very well edited videos and the nice drone shots!
    P.S don't ever stop practicing on that guitar, I'm sure you know the amazing feeling of nailing a song you've been working on!
