Monster trucks are one of God’s personal gifts to the United States. While they garner more than their fair share of negative attention, any self respecting gearhead has to agree that the mechanical awe inspired by one of these creations is tremendous.

Before anyone out there rolls their eyes and reaches for the downvote button, let’s put things into perspective first: Monster trucks weigh three times as much as your car, stand 12 feet tall, push about 1500 horsepower and can literally crush you in a 0 to 60 race. They are 10,000++ pound flying chunks of steel, can run up and over most man-made barriers and are equipped with remote shut-off switches to help prevent an accident if the driver loses control at any time.

Maintaining the $150,000 to $250,000 truck quickly adds up to cost more than the truck itself. However, this does not stop monster truck drivers from lending or giving parts to fix a competitor’s truck even when they are slated to go head to head in the next round. It is the friendliest professional motorsport I have ever heard of.

    Generally I love the mechanical engineering these trucksters endure. Youtr picture shows an “erect” truck in action as it were. I’m into the more practical desert and jungle beatings often extracted from my favorite expedition outfitted Land Rovers and Toyota Land Cruisers. But this picture exemplifies the extravagance of it all!

    We visit the superbowl of motorsports in Tampa every year, Monster Jam is our favorite part. My 3 boys LOVE it. Great capture here, hard to get them in a shot.
