2. What kind of competitions are there?
Basically, there are two types of competitions that monster truck drivers face demonstrating their extraordinary talents and skills: Racing and Freestyle. In the side-by-side racing, it is all about speed. The monster truck, who first crosses the finish line, moves on to the next round. There are always two options – you win and go on, or you are eliminated. The freestyle competition instead - that’s probably the most thrilling part – is challenging for both trucks and drivers. Each driver shows their most breathtaking stunts jumping over and maneuvering around cars, busses, boats and even airplanes showing up on the track.
