Monster Trucks Roll on Outdoor Channel

The Outdoor Channel is the new TV home of the "Monsters of Destruction Monster Truck Series," the network said Wednesday.

Beginning in January, the MOD series will air Saturdays at 3 p.m. (EST). The network will also air half-hour series Monsters of Destruction-Behind the Scenes.

The MOD series will feature 26 total rounds of racing, crowning champions in three different categories -- straight-line drag racing, obstacle-course racing and freestyle. Points will be accumulated by each contestant in each round determining the champions in each category.

"This exciting series has an enormous following of die-hard fans across the country, many of whom have been found to also be avid Outdoor Channel enthusiasts," senior vice president of programming Wade Sherman said in a prepared statement.
