A dirt-filled first for Mercedes-Benz Stadium

Workers are in the process of creating the surface for the first Monster Jam trucks event to be held in the $1.5 billion-plus Mercedes-Benz Stadium Saturday and Sunday. 

Monster Jam made at least one appearance annually in the new stadium’s predecessor, the Georgia Dome, from 1993 through early last year. 

A Monster Jam spokeswoman said thousands of tons  of Georgia red clay are stored nearby and reused each year. After this weekend’s event, 4,000 tons of dirt will remain on the stadium floor for a while longer.
