Monster Truck Jam coming to Sacramento

Monster truck fans can get an early and up close look at the big trucks coming to Sacramento for this month’s Monster Jam – and get a sneak peak at a possible career.

Universal Technical Institute (UTI), the official technical institute of Monster Jam, is holding an open house featuring two monster trucks, Grave Digger(r) and Scooby-Doo(tm), their drivers and crews.

 The open house will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Jan. 17 at UTI’s campus at 4100 Duckhorn Dr. in Sacramento. Attendees will have the opportunity to take photos, get autographs from the drivers and tour UTI’s 245,000 square foot campus.

 UTI is the leading provider of post-secondary education for students seeking careers as professional automotive, diesel, collision repair, motorcycle and marine technicians.

 “This is a great opportunity to get a look at these monster trucks and to get to meet the people behind them,” said Mark Harston, national marketing manager for Universal Technical Institute. “For students interested in careers as auto technicians, this is a fun day to enjoy these unique vehicles and to learn more about our exceptional educational opportunities.”  

 To encourage students interested in careers in the automotive technician training industry, Monster Jam champion Dennis Anderson and Universal Technical Institute have partnered to give a deserving individual a $10,000 scholarship. For more information please visit
