    Beginning this weekend,(Feb 15) Monster Jam will discontinue the use of free standing cars as obstacles within our shows. Our commitment to the safety of the fans, drivers and crews serves as the incentive to take this step. The advanced technology of our Monster Jam trucks and elevation of the skills of the athlete/drivers serves to provide an outstanding level of excitement. Crushing is an important part of a complete Monster Jam experience, so alternatives are being studied for possible future inclusion to increase the entertainment value. Cars embedded within dirt will continue to be used in stadium events.

    Developments in safety and event quality will evolve the global phenomenon of Monster Jam.

    Did any debris go near the fans?

    I bet you're right. Money talks.

    The local shows use cars exclusively and I never see cut tires. They go for 3-4 minutes of freestyle too, not 90 seconds.
