The Biggest Pit Party in Motorsports

Authored by Scott Jordan on February 22, 2024

If you’ve ever been to a Monster Jam event, chances are you’ve at least witnessed some elements of the Pit Party. But unless you’ve been able to get your feet on the dirt, you might not know exactly how much fun it is.


Nearly every motor sport has a variation of a pit party. Fans arrive early by the thousands to get a glimpse of their favorite superstars and walk around the arena or stadium with opportunities for engaging activities for the whole family.


Most professional athletes are kept on very tight schedules which leaves little time to meet fans. In some instances, you have to book a reservation or buy a ticket to meet one star or player and even then, there is no guarantee you will get a picture.


Monster Jam has changed the game across the entire sports spectrum with the availability of our drivers and the inclusiveness that our fans feel at each event across the world. In our sport, drivers meet fans for the entire duration of the Pit Party, sometimes signing autographs and taking pictures for over four hours.


Monster Jam drivers also spend more time with each fan than any other sport I’ve ever witnessed, making each of them feel like they are catching up with an old friend. Not to mention every fan at the Pit Party can take a picture with every Monster Jam truck that is competing at that event, which is an experience I know that my kids and I still treasure.


To simplify it there is literally something for every member of the family, whether that’s getting crazy hair from our friends at Great Clips, to going down the Thunder Alley bounce slide, making a sign for your favorite truck, or having the opportunity to ride in a real life Monster Jam truck, you will have plenty of options for fun. Hopefully you will get out there and experience it for yourself.


And if you happen to be at the pit party at Camping World Stadium on March 2nd you might just see me walking around like a big kid in a candy store. I look forward to seeing you there!
