Sunrise fans will witness a fierce battle for the event championship with each skilled Monster Jam athlete tearing up the dirt with gravity-defying feats in 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks going head-to-head for points in Freestyle, the Skills Challenge and Racing competitions. Plus, fans can become part of the action by voting for the winner in the Skills Challenge and Freestyle competitions via real-time, in-stadium fan voting on their smartphones.
The all-star truck lineup will feature multiple fan favorites including Krysten Anderson in the legendary Grave Digger®, the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD™ holder for the highest monster truck ramp jump. The newest driver of the Great Clips Mohawk Warrior® team, Elvis Lainez, has started out strong in 2021 and will look to continue his success into Sunrise.
Two-time Monster Jam World Finals Champion, Todd LeDuc, gets behind the wheel of Monster Energy®, while reigning Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle champion Linsey Read competes in Scooby Doo™. Brothers Matt and Nick Pagliarulo take on the field in Jester and Kraken. Rounding out the epic eight-truck lineup will be Buddy Tompkins in Xtermigator and Jack Brown in FTI Torque.
Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles-per-hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motorsports action seen around the world.
