Six Monster Truck records were set and validated by Guinness World Records at Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, in Florida: Adam Anderson, with his Monster Truck Megalodon, jumped eight cars lined up in a row, while Krysten Anderson, the first and only female driver of Grave Digger, won the title for the highest jump from the ramp, reaching a height of 33.8 ft. Bryce Kenny achieved the high-speed record of 100.31mph on the Great Clips Mohawk Warrior, and Bari Musawwir with Zombie executed the most consecutive Donuts – 58 in total – and 44 in one minute. Tom Meents, 12-time Monster Jam World Final champion set the record of the longest nose wheelie with Max-D by achieving 209 ft.

BKT’s Monster Jam tire is a 66-in. tire which the company says offers excellent stability – even after landing from a height of 14 meters – thanks to a particular shoulder which makes it possible to bounce at the moment of impact and to quickly restabilize. It has a hard and rigid flank to avoid cuts and breaks and an extra-solid structure to resist and overcome these unique conditions.

BKT has been the partner of Monster Jam since 2014, thanks to an agreement with Feld Motor Sports.
