They're back!

Monster Jam is in Manila once again to the delight of Filipino fans as truck-on-truck violence will be witnessed at the Mall of Asia Arena on June 18-19.

Eight of the most recognizable Monster Jam trucks on the planet will battle it out in four different competitions including Racing, Wheelies, Donuts and Freestyle.

Grave Digger® driven by Adam Anderson, Max-DTM with Neil Elliott on the driver seat, Monster Mutt® Dalmatian with Candice Jolly in charge, Morgan Kane's Team Hot Wheels® Firestorm®, Alien InvasionTM of Chad Tingler, Steven Sims and the Pirate’s CurseTM, Scott Liddycoat's DragonTM and Scooby-DooTM driven by Brianna Mahon will all see action in Manila.

The Racing competition will see the trucks compete in tournament bracket elimination as they rip around the track working to be the fastest in the head to head racing competition. The truck crossing the finish line with the fastest time will be crowned the Manila Racing champion. 

Each driver will then get a chance to wow the judges in the Wheelie competition. A wheelie consists of the Monster Jam driver lifting the front wheels of the Monster Jam truck off the ground and driving only on the rear wheels before landing back on all fours.

This fan judged competition will test the driver’s ability to maneuver the track and perfectly set their trucks up on two tires off each wheelie ramp. 

The donut competition will consist of each driver taking a turn on the track and attempting to spin the Monster Jam trucks in circles on one spot of the floor.

The fan judges will look for the number or rotations and how fast the truck moves when judging this competition.

Last but not least, the fan-favorite freestyle competition.

The timed freestyle competition will see each truck come out one-by-one for a limited amount of time in which they will be scored on everything from big air, to saves and even carnage. Freestyle is judged on a scale from one to ten and if a driver can keep the truck in one piece and perform in bonus time, a bonus time score will also count towards the over all event score. 

Aside from the four Monster Jam truck events, Manila fans will also be witness to an FMX exhibition during intermission along with ATV racing throughout the event. The FMX exhibition will consist of the best-of-the-best local FMX athletes jumping and even flipping through the air on dirt bikes.

The ATV athletes will line up at the starting line for two heat races and one championship racing round to crown the overall Manila ATV racing champion.
