The Mobil 1 Thunder Jam is brought to Manitoba by Chudd’s Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep in Gimli and Walls Rod and Custom of Winnipeg.
Monster Jam heads from the arena to the drag strip and transforms into action packed, high speed Thunder Jam!
The show will feature an incredible line up of thrilling race machines designed to treat Manitoba race fans to a show unlike any other.
Monster Jam superstar Randy Brown pits his legendary 2,000 horsepower Grave Digger against Manitoba’s own IHRA World Champion drag racer Kenny Lang and his hemi powered 2,000 plus horsepower Pro Modified Camaro. While the two machines have very few similarities and are designed for two totally different forms of racing, they both share one very common characteristic – when they pull onto the track, fans take notice. The pair will go head-to-head in one of the most unique, most exciting and most over-the-top drag racing events ever at the Mobil 1 Gimli Thunder Jam.
In addition to the never seen before finale, the Gimli Thunder Jam will also feature a unique match up as Prairie Gold, Canada’s only bio fuel powered jet funny car returns to Winnipeg to take on Scott McVey’s 3,200 horsepower top alcohol funny car. This promises to be an all out test of power and speed.
Local and visiting drag racers will be going for the gusto for the prestigous Ironman trophy throughout the early evening, too. To add to the excitement, spectators will get the chance to be up and close to the feature stars and their cars at the ThunderFest Pit Party. The entire pit area will be open so that you can see all of the race cars and talk with the drivers and crews. Souvenirs and concession food will round out the fun.
This is the first time that any drag racing event of this magnitude has come to Manitoba.
Fans of fast cars and explosive action are in for some incredible racing and a ton of fun! This is a “can’t miss” event!
