Monster Jam truck show is such an awesome event

I went to my first Monster Jam show at Nassau Coliseum. It was really noisy, but I really loved it.

Owners of the trucks design what they want their trucks to look like. My favorite was Grave Digger. A graveyard is painted on the truck with a skull mountain. The winner of the show was Zombie. The driver of Zombie was a girl! Her name is Ami Houde.

There are a lot of other trucks to see and enjoy. The best one at the show was El Toro Loco — it blows smoke, as if it’s breathing through his nose! Cool, right?

Scooby-Doo looks like a dog with light brown paint, a blue collar with “SD” on the tag, and big ears. Son-uva Digger is like Grave Digger, but it has a painting of a dump with broken-down trucks. Max-D has a mad face on the sides, and on the top it says “All-Time Monster Jam World Finals Champion.” Blue Thunder has thunder bolts and “Blue Thunder” on both sides. Megalodon has light blue skin with fins, scary black eyes and big white teeth.

There is one thing I have to tell you: Monster Jam is awesome, and you should watch it on TV or go to a show. You just missed this year’s show, but it will be back!
