“Freestyle Mania brings a new flavor to Monster Jam,” said Bill Easterly, senior director of operations, Feld Motor Sports. “The idea is to bring more entertainment and more of what the fans want than ever before!”

Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam Freestyle Mania combines an array of freestyle competitions, featuring Monster Jam Freestyle, Quad-FMX, Freestyle Super Bike, Freestyle Motocross and Freestyle BMX during an action packed two-hour show.

Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam Freestyle Mania will feature the following show elements:

• Monster Jam Freestyle Mania Wheelie Competition
Unlike the traditional power wheelie, where the driver uses the engine’s power to transfer up onto the back wheels, this Freestyle Mania wheelie competition is where the driver will be tested by how the he manipulates the unyielding obstacle course in an attempt to pull off the perfect Freestyle wheelie.

• Monster Jam Freestyle Mania Maniac Challenge
Drivers will be time challenged as they skillfully navigate their way through an obstacle course that includes cars, trucks and more barriers positioned on the track in an attempt to slow down the 10,000 pound trucks.

• Freestyle Mania Jam Session
Integrated into the program will be the first-ever ‘Jam Session,’ where Quad-FMXers, Freestyle Superbikers, Freestyle Motocrossers, and Freestyle BMXers perform simultaneously at one time on the course.

• Monster Jam Donut Competition
Performing a donut while driving has been around for a long time, but through the defiance of monster truck drivers, a regular donut was just not enough. Enter the cyclone, a move where the driver creates enough speed while performing a regular donut that the truck’s rear tires gyrate so rapidly that the truck appears to be nailed to the floor.

• Monster Jam Freestyle Competition
Bigger, better and badder than ever before, this competition will feature fan favorite Monster Jam Freestyle. No rules, no restriction as the trucks pogo-stick their way around the course in an effort to deliver the most entertaining run possible.

A special “Built Ford Tough” Party In The Pits will take place at Nassau Coliseum on Saturday, Jan. 11 from 11 a.m. -1 p.m., and at IZOD Center on Saturday, Feb. 5 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. The Party In The Pits gives fans a chance to get a view of the trucks up-close and personal and meet the drivers of the 10,000 pound behemoth monster trucks. Pit Passes are $5 and are available at the arena box offices while supplies last. Pit Pass holders must also have a ticket for the 2 p.m. performance for entry.
