Official Monster Truck 2022 Thread


Recommended Posts

With the Monster Jam 2022 Season Kickoff discussing lots of new things about next season, alongside certain trucks being sold, I thought "Hey, don't you think it's time to make yet another one of those official threads where you work your butt off to keep it as accurate as possible?"

Well, if nobody wants to stop me, then here we go again...


Here is what we currently know about the upcoming 2022 season regarding Monster Trucks!


- FELD is bringing back the Lucas Oil Stabilizer name for the 2022 Monster Jam season. It will be driven by Cynthia Gauthier for Stadium Championship Series Red.

- To commemorate the trucks 40th Anniversary, the Grave Digger team will be running special designs throughout the 2022 season.

- In an Instagram posted by Bernard Lyght, he hinted that Alien Invasion could potentially be retiring after 2021, possibly after the Tacoma events.

-Monster Jam confirmed that the following trucks would not compete in any events in 2022 (unless more events are added in the season): Alien Invasion, Blue Thunder, Dragon, Monster Mutt Dalmation, Monster Mutt Rottweiler, Northern Nightmare, BroDozer, and BroCamino.

- Monster Energy is not listed as a competing truck in any Monster Jam Series. There is a rumor that it is due to the contract expiring, and is currently awaiting to be renewed.

- Wrecking Machine and Rockwell R.E.D made their stadium debuts on October 9th in El Paso.



- After nearly 5 years of driving Alien Invasion, Bernard Lyght will be moving to Megalodon for the Arena Championship Series East tour.

- Charlie Pauken will be returning to team Monster Mutt for the first time since 2017 for Stadium Championship Series Yellow.

- Tristan England will be returning back to EarthShaker for the Arena Championship Series West tour.

- Colton Eichelberger, Tyler Menninga, Mark List, Kraig Champion, Mike Christensen, and Paul Jensen will be making their first quarter debuts in stadiums.

Monster Jam:

-Monster Jam confirmed via the 2022 Season Kickoff Stream that Monster Jam World Finals 21 will take place on May 21st-May 22nd, 2022. They have also confirmed an encore for both the 30th anniversary of Monster Jam (Tom Meents will attempt a forward momentum reverse backflip) on Saturday, and the 40th anniversary of Grave Digger (a truck jump performed by Adam Anderson) on Sunday.

-Five tours will be ran for the 2022 Monster Jam season, two Stadium Championship tours (Red & Yellow) and three Arena Championship tours (West, East, & Central).

Well, a lot has happened since the last time I edited this, didn't think anyone would care lol:


Monster Jam:

- 19 year old Weston "Teeny" Anderson will be behind the wheel of Grave Digger (Specifically Grave Digger 33) for Arena Championship Series East, making him the youngest driver to currently compete in Monster Jam, and for team Grave Digger.

- The two TBA spots in ACSE will feature a rotational schedule on every stop for multiple drivers, including long-time veteran Frank Krmel.

- After a successful 9 year run, Monster Energy was retired in 2021.

- Todd Leduc will be back in Blue Thunder for the first time since 2011 for Stadium Championship Series Red.

- Coty Saucier will pilot Dragon for Arena Championship Series East.

- Cynthia Gauthier will drive Monster Mutt Dalmation for a non-points show for the Milwaukee, WI event for Stadium Championship Series Red (due to the Lucas Oil Stabilizer body either not being completely ready or FELD wanting the truck to debut in San Antonio instead)

- The Rod Ryan Show will be making its return to the Houston show for Stadium Championship Series Yellow. It will be driven on the Axe chassis by Preston Perez. The design is yet to be revealed.

- In Arena Championship Series West, Travis Mowery has been moved from Extreme Attitude to Rockwell R.E.D., completely removing Extreme Attitude from the lineup. In place of Extreme Attitude, Nitro Menace will be taking its place, being driven by Brad Allen.

Any chance anyone knows who’s in which digger chassis this year? Vinson has 36, Weston has 33, and Tyler looks to be in 39. 

33 is being driven by Weston, Brandon has 36, Menninga is in 39, Krysten is in 41, and Adam is in 35

As if the USA-1 Operation wasn't enough for him, James Trantina III just bought the rights to all of Paul Shafer's trucks (Monster Patrol, Boogey Van, Bear Foot, Extreme Overkill, and a few others), as well as the trucks themselves.
