The Arena Championship Series West features eight skilled athletes fighting for the championship while putting on a spectacle, constantly innovating and always entertaining. Brandon Vinson gets behind the wheel of the black and green wrecking machine, the legendary Grave Digger, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Tristan England returns to competition in Earth Shaker, Bernard Lyght makes his debut in Megalodon, and Myranda Cozad in Scooby-Doo looks to lock in the championship.
Monster Jam drivers are trained, world-class male and female athletes who have mastered not only the physical strength and mental stamina needed to compete, but the vital dexterity to control 12,000-pound machines capable of doing backflips, vertical two-wheel skills and racing at speeds up to 70 miles-per-hour to produce jaw-dropping, live motorsports action seen around the world.
