Monster Jam will blow South Floridians away with its best Summer Heat show yet where they’ll get to experience:
- The Party in the Pits for fans to get up-close shots of the Monster Trucks and meet the drivers! Free pit passes will be available at local participating Advance Auto Parts retail stores starting Monday, July 29 while supplies last.
- An amazing truck line up – six of the best monster trucks in the world will be riding on the wide open track inside the BB&T Center! US Hot Rod Association Monster Trucks include World Champion Grave Digger®, Monster Mutt, MaxD and much more!
