HOUSTON -- Monster Jam FS1 Championship Series will be hyping up the crowds Saturday and Sunday at NRG Stadium. Monster Jam is the most adrenaline-charged motorsports experience for families on the planet!

During the ultimate action-packed live event on four wheels, world-class drivers compete in both monster truck racing and freestyle competitions. Faithful fans will get the chance to get up close and personal with their favorite trucks and drivers at the pre-show Pit Party.

Built for short, high-powered bursts of speed, the trucks generate 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower and are capable of speeds of up to 100 miles per hour. Monster Jam trucks can fly up to 130 ft. in distance and up to 35 ft. in the air.
