Monster Jam® Tickets Now Available
for Verizon Center Shows
Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam coming to D.C. January 27-29, 2012
Washington, D.C. â€“ Tickets for Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam®, the world’s premier monster truck series, are now available for the Washington, D.C. event, which roars into Verizon Center January 27-29, 2012. This year’s show will celebrate the 30th anniversary of legendary monster truck, Grave Digger®.
In 1982, Dennis Anderson came up with the concept for Grave Digger on the shores of the Outer Banks of North Carolina and a legend was born. Originally built out of an old 1957 Chevy Panel Wagon and parts that he scrounged from junkyards, the Grave Digger of today has grown by leaps and bounds, becoming the sports’ most famous and decorated monster truck in the world. After 30 exciting years, Grave Digger is still entertaining millions of fans at Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam events around the country. In celebration of this milestone, audiences will experience specialty Grave Digger 30th anniversary monster trucks exclusively at the show.
Patrons with a ticket to the Saturday, January 28th 2:00 p.m. show can meet the drivers and get a view of the trucks up close at the Party in the Pits from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Ticket holders can obtain a free Pit Party pass from Advanced Auto Parts locations beginning January 2, 2012 or pay $10 at the box office for access.
Monster Jam, sanctioned by the United States Hot Rod Association®, is the most popular monster truck tour, performing to over 4 million fans annually at the most prestigious arenas and stadiums throughout the world. Monster Jam shows consist of three main fan-favorite elements â€“ the pit party, racing and freestyle.
