Converted field for Supercross and Monster Truck at Snapdragon
Snapdragon Stadium became the home of the Monster Jam Monster Truck Show in 2023 and is returning again in January. How does a stadium and field optimized for football and Soccer transform its space into a monster truck rally arena?

Monster Jam at Snapdragon Stadium

To prepare the field for the arrival of 6-ton monster trucks, it must first be covered in dirt. Last year, 26 million pounds of dirt were poured into the stadium, the work of approximately 250 dump trucks. How much is 26 million pounds of dirt?
  • 473,000 of those orange Home Depot buckets
  • The dirt-equivelent of the 2.3 million gallons of molasses spilled in Boston’s Great Molasses Flood of 1919
  • Enough dirt to make pitchers mounds on 1,500 baseball fields.

In 2023, the field was also used as a track for the Monster Energy Supercross racing track.

“We are excited to be at this new Snapdragon Stadium. They are two different tracks,” says Monster Jam tour manger Gabe Resto told reporters last year. “At Petco Park, you have a baseball field, while here you have a football field. There is a little more room her at Snapdragon to allow our trucks to do a little more exciting stuff.”
