Monster Trucks Roll on Outdoor Channel

Publish date:

The Outdoor Channel is the new TV home of the "Monsters of Destruction Monster Truck Series," the network said Wednesday.

Beginning in January, the MOD series will air Saturdays at 3 p.m. (EST). The network will also air half-hour series Monsters of Destruction-Behind the Scenes.

The MOD series will feature 26 total rounds of racing, crowning champions in three different categories -- straight-line drag racing, obstacle-course racing and freestyle. Points will be accumulated by each contestant in each round determining the champions in each category.

"This exciting series has an enormous following of die-hard fans across the country, many of whom have been found to also be avid Outdoor Channel enthusiasts," senior vice president of programming Wade Sherman said in a prepared statement.
