Monster Jam is Ready for its Osaka Debut

The final touches have been put into place for the first Monster Jam® ever held in Osaka, Japan. Crews have been building a special facility at Maishima Special Stage to welcome Japanese fans to the event.

Three afternoon performances are scheduled for May 3-5, each preceded by a festival which begins in the morning and continues after the show. Each Monster Jam performance will feature a team competition format. Monster Jam drivers will compete in Racing (one point), Wheelies (one point), Donuts (one point) and Freestyle (two points). A designated teammate will compete in ATV racing. Each ATV rider will compete in one heat race and a main event. The winner of each heat race gets one-half point while the winner of the main event gets one point for his or her team.

The eight drivers ready for action are Brianna Mahon (Team Scooby Doo!TM), Bari Musawwir (Team DragonTM), Scott Buetow (Team Hot WheelsTM Firestorm), Chad Tingler (Team Alien InvasionTM), Candice Jolly (Team Monster Mutt® Dalmatian), Coty Saucier (Team Monster Energy®), Neil Elliott (Team Max-DTM) and Jon Zimmer (Team Grave Digger®).
