Discovery Channel has partnered with Magilla Entertainment, in association with Feld Entertainment, to launch its latest event special from the Diesel Brothers.
Diesel Brothers: Monster Jam Breaking World Records will chart Heavy D and Diesel Dave, as well as TV personality Chris Jacobs, as they once again team with Monster Jam for a night of “record-breaking stunts and Guinness World Record attempts.”
This year, the Diesel Brothers team will guide audiences through the night, setting up the night’s myriad stunts – including a Diesel Brothers drag race – with their colorful commentary and play-by-play.
In addition, Monster Jam drivers Adam and Krysten Anderson will be behind the wheel to attempt world records including the record for most monster trucks – eight – jumped by another monster truck, and the highest ramp jump in Grave Digger monster truck.
Other drivers featured include Todd LeDuc, who will attempt the first-ever “forward momentum double back flip” in a monster truck; Bryce Kenny, attempting to break the record for the fastest speed ever recorded; Bari Musawwir, attempting the most consecutive donut revolutions in a monster truck and the most number of donuts in a monster truck in one minute; and Tom Meents, attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest nose wheelie in monster truck.
Diesel Brothers: Monster Jam Breaking World Records premieres Aug. 8 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel. The event special will also be made available on the Discovery GO app.
The three-hour stunt follows last year’s stunt when the Diesel Brothers successfully jumped their 12,000-pound “BroDozer Monster Jam” truck over a plane in flight.
