About This Quiz

Monster trucks have long been a cool and fun part of the world of motorsports. They're massive and powerful machines that can literally roll over normal cars as though they were speed bumps. That's amazing! Monster Jam has been bringing those cool trucks to a town near you ever since 1992. They run shows all over North America, in big towns and tiny towns, anyplace people want to see massive trucks racing and engaging in some mind-blowing freestyle tricks. Even people who don't consider themselves fans recognize monster trucks at a mere glance — these aren't the kind of vehicles that fade into the background or are easily forgotten. And honestly, who doesn't recognize the world-famous Grave Digger when they first see it rolling out? Or the futuristic SUV known as Max-D?

No matter what it is that you're into, there's definitely a Monster Jam truck out there that's going to capture your imagination and make you a fan.
