TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 4, 2011) -

Attention Sports, News and Lifestyle Editors

Canadians, start your engines! For the first time in the nearly 30-year history of Monster Jam®, Feld Motor Sports® is rolling out a Canuck-branded monster truck and needs your help to select the name. The epic new monster truck will roar across Canada in early 2012, stopping in six cities for the Maple Leaf Monster Jam Tour.

Feld Motor Sports will conduct a national Name the Canuck Monster Truck online contest inviting Canadians to offer up their best homegrown names for this soon-to-be fan favourite monster truck, which will be driven by Calgary-native, Cam McQueen.

The winner will receive 10 Gold Circle tickets to the 2012 Toronto Monster Jam show of his or her choice, a one night-hotel stay (double occupancy), Monster Jam programs, and select Monster Jam merchandise.

The prize has an approximate retail value of $1800.00 (CAD).
