Do you know the best way to entertain yourself? Statistically speaking, in the United States of America, you will find that monster trucks have ruled the entertainment industry for some time.

Check out these rallies where these monster trucks smash the smallest things to your dismay!
This is one of the most popular truck rallies in the United States of America – the Monster Truck Rallies. You will find that the truck driver will have the freedom to do just about anything he wants to do. You could take a freewheel course and do just about any trick you know you have up your sleeve. Some things, like smashing small cars and RVs, might not give you good thoughts, but that’s what these trucks at rallies are made for.
As stated before, these trucks were built from pick-up trucks. The first monster trucks burst onto the scene in the 1970s. When they were first modified to monster trucks, owners had only one goal in mind: how to make them bigger and stronger! You’d be surprised to know that some of them even went so far as to lift the vehicle into the air. Bigfoot, Bear Foot and King Kong, the first Monster trucks, owned by Fred Shafer, Jack Willman Sr., and Jeff Dane respectively, soon became part of national folklore.
The first time Monster trucks participated in regular races was in the 1980s. The USHRA and TNT Motorsports sparked a series of monster truck championships, one of which became a regular race every year. In 1988, TNT Motorsports designed a new championship in which trucks used fiberglass bodies and lighter axles. This was to ensure better mobility for the trucks.
Soon, these truck rallies became so popular that National Television channels covered them. The popularity of these truck rallies caused National Radio to cover these monster truck rallies. In 1990, these truck rallies saw a frenzied development in the way they were covered by various broadcast channels. A fast-talking, loud-yelling radio host soon became a permanent part of these races. Soon enough, you could see the popularity of these rallies growing.
Batman, Carolina Crusher, Donkey Kong, Iron Outlaw, King Krunch, Predator, and USA-1 are some of the most popular trucks participating in Monster Truck rallies to date. One look at these trucks and you’ll be convinced of the fact that they can smash just about anything. What do you get when you watch a Monster Truck rally? Excitement and entertainment galore! At least these two factors have caused more than a million people to watch these careers, resulting in this industry becoming a million dollar industry to date.
