Monster Jam announced that they would be making more appearances in more cities this month, and through the rest of the late winter and early spring. The move was one that didn’t come as a complete shock, but rather something that appeared to come out of relatively short time. Monster Jam included that they would be making more additions to stops over the weekend following the Valentines weekend, which was something that many fans thought would be a great move.
As Monster Jam continues to draw larger crowds – organizers see more, and more opportunity for putting these events on, and putting these events together. In the next week, Monster Jam will also be making its debut in Canada – something the organization had been working to do for some time now.
Interestingly, a contest that occurred in Pittsburgh allowed one individual to win pit passes, as well as the chance to interview the driver of the truck known as “Grave Digger.” Log McGinnis was the winner, and at just 15 years old was one of the youngest individuals to ever have the chance to do what he did – sit in pit row. That being said, he asked Pablo Huffaker – the driver of the Grave Digger – how he would do – and his response sounded like a sportsman’s response. He said “I hope to win every event that I participate in, I want to jump this thing higher and farther than anybody else here and I’m going to do bigger wheelies, you name it.”
Over the last several years, Monster Jam has grown in popularity, and drivers, as well as enthusiasts, have become more passionate about the sport. While they typically play smaller venues – they now are branching out into larger venues, as well as covering more ground.
