Monster Jam® invites Canadians to make history: Name Canada’s first Canuck monster truck!
TORONTO, ON… Canadians, start your engines! For the first time in the nearly 30-year history of Monster Jam®, Feld Motor Sports® is rolling out a Canuck-branded monster truck and needs your help to select the name. The epic new monster truck will roar across Canada in early 2012, stopping in six cities for the Maple Leaf Monster Jam Tour.
Feld Motor Sports will conduct a national Name the Canuck Monster Truck online contest inviting Canadians to offer up their best homegrown names for this soon-to-be fan favourite monster truck, which will be driven by Calgary-native, Cam McQueen.
The contest runs October 4 – 14, 2011.
The winner will receive 10 Gold Circle tickets to the 2012 Toronto Monster Jam show of his or her choice, a one night-hotel stay (double occupancy), Monster Jam programs, and select Monster Jam merchandise. The winner will also get to step inside the new Canuck monster truck, experience a private meet and greet with Monster Jam drivers, take photos with the new monster truck and Cam McQueen, and be recognized at a news conference and monster truck-naming ceremony. The monster truck will be unveiled at a news conference in Toronto in November when the winning name and contest winner will be announced. The prize has an approximate retail value of $950.00 (CAD).
“Canadians love their monster trucks and what better tribute to our loyal Canadian fans then adding a dedicated Canuck branded monster truck and driver to the Maple Leaf Monster Jam tour,” said Amy Dubinsky, VP Event Marketing and Sales, Feld Motor Sports. “With Calgary’s Cam McQueen behind the wheel, Canadians should be prepared for a wild ride this season.”
