Usually during the first quarter of monster truck action, not a lot of focus happens on the events that occur after March concludes. It's consistently looking to the next week, getting ready for the next event, and a quick turnaround to get repairs done.
When April begins, events do not happen as often, at least not every weekend. This means that fewer tours are occurring and it gives teams a chance to go into more repairs, and spend more time getting each issue fixed to get the trucks to 100%, rather than fixed enough to go to the next weekend's show. This means that there are fewer big events during the spring and summer, but those events are key as many eyes are watching.
No tour during the spring, summer, and early fall is bigger than what Family Events puts on in their 4-Wheel Jamboree tour. Consistently the top summer series for not just monster trucks, but mud racing, tough trucks, and show-and-shine competitions, each year they strive to go bigger than the previous season.
After a highly successful 2013 season, already preparations were going into what to do different, and what to do bigger for the next year. The biggest thing fans were wondering was who would come on board to compete for the Monster Truck Thunder Drags titles in both racing and freestyle.
The wait is now over. Here is a full-on look into the monster truck line-up for each event in this year's Lucas Oil 4-Wheel Jamboree Series.
