Monster truck drivers earn an average of $29,000 a year, according to Simply Hired. A monster truck driver’s salary can range from $25,000 to $50,000 depending on the state of the industry, the driver’s experience, where the driver travels to and the company that hired the driver.

A monster truck driver is part of a team and travels all over North America. It is not uncommon for a driver to do 50 shows over the course of one year in front of massive audiences. Monster truck drivers spend very little time at home and most of their time on the road. It can cost up to $150,000 to build a monster truck and the same amount again to keep the truck running for a year.
