Monster Jam 2018 coming to JAX

They’re big! They’re tough! And they’ll be in Jacksonville, Florida very soon!  You’ll want to get your tickets pronto.  It’s time for MONSTER JAM!  Did you ever wonder how the world's premier football and sports fields become Monster Jam® performance tracks?  There is a lot more to the transformation than only dumping dirt over the surface.  350 truckloads of dirt will begin their conversion on top of one of the NFL's natural grass surfaces of EverBank Field, on Thurs., Feb.22nd.

A stadium track construction conversion by the numbers:
   1,100 sheets of plastic product to protect the natural grass surface
   500-man hours to install the field protection covering and build the track
   350 dump truck loads or around 6,000 tons, 12 million pounds
   Entire field will be converted to “Monster Jam” track by Thurs. night / Fri. morning and finalized Fri. afternoon to be ready for the Sat. 7 p.m. event.
   20 pieces of heavy machinery
   1,200 sq. feet of banners
   45 gallons of paint needed to paint obstacles and track
   10 “crush cars”

Monster Trucks will be on public display this Thursday.  Fans will have a chance to see and take photos with some of the show's enormous trucks, and meet the race teams before these beasts roar into EverBank Field for the Jam.  The best part, it's all free to the public at the following times and locations:
