My kid’s ( and I ) love Monster Jam! i wanted to make them an easter present and decided it will be a Monster Jam monster truck arena track. The base is made of 3/4 baltic birch and I used silicone caulikng, polyurethane spray foam and lots of glue to create a textured dirt like surface. Splashed some paint on it and added some detail with model paints. This was designed to work with the Hot Wheels 1/64 scale Monster Jam Trucks and let me tell you my 3 year old boys LOVED IT!

Great job, love it!!!!
I kept all my son’s hot wheels and monster jam trucks after he grew out of them at 11yrs old…I will wait until the grand kids and I can play together.
