TRUCK HISTORY
The Hot Wheels name has a long history in Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam® through Mattel’s popular Hot Wheels Monster Jam die casts, game sets like the Triple Blast Arena and by having sponsored the Team Hot Wheels® Firestorm® Monster Jam truck in competition during the early 2000s. But in 2012, the Hot Wheels name returned to on-the-track competition in a big way! The Firestorm® Monster Jam truck is the first of its kind, constructed with state-of-the-art laminate technology. Made of carbon fiber, Kevlar and E-glass (which is used to make some of the parts found on the International Space Station), the body weighs half that of a normal fiberglass body. This Monster Jam truck is 17 feet long and 11 feet high, weighs 10,000 lbs. and sports a 1,500 horsepower engine.

To see how the Firestorm Monster Jam truck was created, fans can check out the Hot Wheels YouTube channel for the “making of” footage for this Monster Jam truck.
