Monster Truck Rallies

Typically American, and typically male dominated, the Monster Truck Rallies are big in every way. The trucks are modified four-wheel drive vehicles, with the truck body sitting way up on top of tires six feet high and almost four feet wide. Such vehicles would never be allowed on the road even though they are in great working order.

The vehicles have to be towed to the stadiums where they put on their shows. They compete by driving off an elevated ramp and seeing how many cars they can crush beneath them before reach to a stop. Between 15 and 25 cars are crushed during the average rally.
