Oh, no! Monster Truck Max is getting ready for the big Monster Truck Rally tonight, but he practices so much that he accidentally crushes his ramp. He can’t jump over any obstacles without his ramp! Jack Truck and the gang come to the rescue by building a new ramp for Max out of materials from the construction site. Comes with a pull-out poster of the gang hanging out and having fun at the Monster Dome!
