Denver, CO (PRWEB) January 02, 2013
Monster Jam is set to kick into high gear again this year. The 2013 shows rev up Friday night, January 4, 2013 in nine cities, including: Trenton, New Jersey; Des Moines, Iowa; Nashville, Tennessee; Manchester, New Hampshire; Birmingham, Alabama; Columbus, Ohio; Rochester, New York; Tacoma, Washington; and Council Bluffs, Iowa.
The tour begins in the late winter each year and visits virtually all major cities in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The shows culminate with the Monster Jam World Finals in Las Vegas every year, with this season’s finals event scheduled for March 23, 2013.
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.
“Online traffic for Monster Jam tickets has been absolutely massive,” said Felina Martinez at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com. “Not only are tickets beginning to sell out for some of the dozens of upcoming shows, the show’s popularity grows each year as new competitors join the tour.
“Since fans of all ages attend these events, many times with close friends and family, we’re proud to be able to offer them a complete selection of Monster Jam tickets, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” said Martinez.

Monster Jam is a live motorsport event tour and TV series currently operated by Feld Entertainment and sponsored by Advance Auto Parts. Scheduled concurrently at different venues around the country, monster trucks face off in two different forms of competition – racing and freestyle.
In the smaller shows, there is a wheelie competition or a donut contest, and sometimes both. 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, drivers try to spin their trucks until they get dizzy, the truck can't go any more, or they think they have a good 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 Championship race.
The freestyle competition gives drivers 90 seconds, plus a 30 second bonus period, on an open floor to show off their skills as they drive their huge trucks over cars. Drivers perform stunts and tricks that make these massive high-horsepower vehicles appear to dance gracefully across the track. The freestyle competition winner is determined by three judges who each give the driver a score out of a possible 10.
If the same driver who wins racing that night also wins freestyle, they receive the Double Down trophy, named after the Double Down activities in the Las Vegas Monster Jam World Finals. (Source: Wikipedia.com)
