AURORA, Ill. – Feld Motor Sports and FOX Sports unveiled the newest addition to Monster Jam® today, a 10,000-pound brute of a Monster Jam truck inspired by Cleatus, FOX Sports’ iconic robot, that makes its Monster Jam debut this Saturday, January 4, at Houston’s Reliant Stadium.
Fresh off the football field, Cleatus powers his way into the Monster Jam lineup, flying the colors of FOX Sports 1, America’s new sports network and new home to Monster Jam television programming. On football Sundays, the NFL on FOX’s signature animated robot struts across the television screen, performing moves that leave even the most experienced athletes in awe. During Monster Jam season, however, Cleatus will bring his moves to the dirt, barreling into stadiums and arenas with that all-too-familiar gusto sports fans have come to love and cheer.
