At the Bert Ogden Arena on Jan. 5

The shows are run in the old "concrete floor track" style, similar to Thunder Nationals. The events are hosted by Tommy Kane (Edinburg anc Hoffman Estates only), Ken Navitsky, and Freddie Sheppard - with Ken and Freddie acting as comic relief for the shows. Before the show, a "Crash Zone" is held, allowing fans to get up close to the drivers and trucks.

Each show consists of 5 different competitions. A Donut Competition, Wheelie Competition, Long Jump Competition, Racing Competition and a Freestyle Competition. After each event, a "Titan Cup Champion" is crowned. The Titan Cup Champion is simply the events overall champion.

Trivia

  • Demo Derby features the same design and "statistics" as Town Hauler, but with a modified paint job. This was likely done as Town Hauler lacks a name, so it was renamed to Demo Derby to make it easier for audiences to identify.
  • In a promo, a blue Escalade body can be seen getting painted blue, hinting towards 32 Degrees joining the tour. This could also mean that, should the tour be successful, more trucks could appear on the tour.
  • Terminator officially has planned to tour with the series in the future. Which Hot Wheels truck though, is currently unknown.
  • Bob Chandler made an appearance during the Louisville shows.
