Monster trucks are back in town

The Monster Jam Triple Threat Series is at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey from Jan. 24 through Jan. 26.

Eight Monster Jam athletes compete in six different racing, freestyle and skill competitions. They compete in Monster Jam speedsters, Monster Jam ATV's, and their iconic Monster Trucks. 

News 12 got a behind-the-scenes look at how the monster truck athletes and crew practice and prepare for the big event. 

Monster Jam athlete Brittany Marcotte said, "These things are huge. They are 12,000 pounds, they have 15,000 horsepower, I mean you can feel it." 

After Newark, the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series will head to the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale on Long Island from Jan. 31 through Feb. 2.
