MONSTER JAM WORLD CHAMPION DRIVER TOM MEENTS
WILL ATTEMPT TO JUMP MAX-D OVER SIX MONSTER JAM TRUCKS
IN RECORD-BREAKING STUNT ATTEMPT AT LEVI'S STADIUM
(Santa Clara, CA / March 21, 2016) Making history this past weekend at Monster Jam World Finals® in Las Vegas, 11-time Monster Jam World Champion and industry pioneer Tom Meents will next attempt to top his feat set last weekend by jumping his 10,000 pound powerhouse truck Max-D™ over six Monster Jam trucks at Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara on Saturday, April 9th.
With extensive preparation, Meents and his Max-D crew are ready for him to throttle his 1,500-horsepower engine to hit 6,200 RPMs on the approach to the dirt ramp in order to make the massive jump spanning over 100 feet to successfully clear the six trucks.
As fans have come to expect of him as a true driving daredevil, last summer Meents was determined to make his mark in the record books by completing the first-ever Monster Jam truck front flip at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ, and then the following week landing a jaw-dropping double back flip stunt at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA.
On Friday April 8th, media are invited for a special advance behind-the-scenes Media Day with driver Tom Meents and his crew to discuss preparing for the stunt and get some up-close views of his truck Max-D.
