After postponements and cancellations of the “Hot Wheels Monster Truck Live” events in 2020, the family-friendly fuel-fest return this year, with a lineup of new monster trucks and new drivers roaring through 10 cities, from Sept. 18 – Nov. 21.

Fans of all ages can thrill to the outrageous power of freestyle motocross, tricks, and stunts as iconic Hot Wheels monster trucks battle it out in larger-than-life form. Long-time favorites Bone Shaker, Tiger Shark, V8 Bomber, and Demo Derby return, along with the “car-eating, fire-breathing, transforming robot,” Megasaurus.

Three new trucks will make their debut in the battle to crown the ultimate heavy-duty hot rod champion.

All-new Mega Wrex clocks in with a jaw-dropping 12-foot-high dinosaur design and 1800 horsepower, with new driver Rick Steffens determined to crush the competition.

With Hot Wheels’ iconic flame design splashed across its sides, new Race Ace lives by the motto, “Always Go Big!”
