Player controls a monster truck.
Several sporting events are associated with these vehicles (which are not always classic 'trucks'). Ones involving driving over normal sized vehicles, usually cars, are common. Mud bogging, super jumping, drag races, and the occasion trailer pulling. Some events. especially the car crushing, feature courses with one or more 180 turns/laps. Cross-country and large course races are very rare in real life.
The first Monster truck video game was released in 1988.
