PHOENIX — One of the most action packed motorsports experience in the world returns to the Valley with Monster Jam coming to town on Oct. 1.

Celebrating 30 years, Monster Jam is back at State Farm Stadium for a night filled with intense speed and skill competitions.

The event includes 12 skilled athletes who will compete in head-to-head battles operating 12,000-pound Monster Jam trucks, where an event champion will be crowned at the end.

The Glendale Monster Jam will feature five-time Monster Jam World Finals champion Adam Anderson, who drives the legendary “Grave Digger” monster truck.

Other renowned trucks that will be in attendance include the “Great Clips Mohawk Warrior”, “El Toro Loco”, “Son-uva Digger”, “Jurassic Attack” and more.

Monster Jam previously had an event at State Farm Stadium on Feb. 12, where “Son-uva Digger” was the champion.

The event will start at 7 p.m., but there will be more for fans to do beforehand.

The popular Monster Jam Pit Party will be open for event goers from 2:30-5:30 p.m., giving fans the opportunity to meet their favorite drivers and get a close up look of the trucks.

Pit passes are available for $20 and there is a VIP experience.

We want to hear from you.
