Monster Jam invades Richmond Coliseum

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Monster Jam has returned to Richmond. Ten monster trucks will take the floor at the Richmond Coliseum, battling for spots in the main event in Las Vegas later this year.

For the first time, the Coliseum has a dirt floor for the event. It took 100 dump trucks full of dirt over two days to complete the floor, and it will add another element to the weekend.

Trucks will compete in a wheelie contest, an obstacle course, a doughnut contest and tackle the ramps and jumps as well.

Two shows will be held on Saturday at the Richmond Coliseum at 2:00 and 7:00.
