Northern Nightmare is a Canadian-themed monster truck owned by FELD motorsports. It was announced in 2011 as a truck with no name. Monster Jam offered a contest for the name to its Canadian fans and the winner's name would the truck's name. Former Nitro Circus driver, Cam McQueen (who is from Canada), drives the truck in Canada and the United States. The chassis was formerly Nitro Circus.

The truck has competed at every World Finals ever since the trucks debut in 2012.

History

Northern Nightmare was announced in 2011. After the contest, the truck was built and began competing in 2012 in America and Canada's Monster Jam tour (Maple Leaf Tour).

In 2012, McQueen was able to compete at Monster Jam World Finals 13, where we won the freestyle championship with a score of 38.

In 2013, McQueen made it to the World Finals, but he didn't win any championships.

In 2014, McQueen made to the World Finals once again, and he once again didn't get a victory. However, he made history by attempting a reverse backflip, but it was unsuccessful, it landed on the truck's roof, while McQueen tries to save the truck, the truck's fuel pump broke, causing the truck to burst into flames. The truck receives a new chassis after the World Finals.

In Ontario, 2015, 2 Northern Nightmares competed together, one on the regular chassis, the other being driven on the Hurricane Force chassis by Steven Thompson.

In 2016, the truck made it to the World Finals again. He didn't win anything but made history by performing the McFlip in the freestyle competition.

In 2017, the truck and McQueen competed in an Arena Tour where he would finish 2nd.

In 2018, he once again competed in an arena tour, this time he would win the championship and would get an automatic bid to the Monster Jam World Finals.

For 2019, Cam and the truck are set to compete in Vancouver and other select events in Canada, as Cam is driving an unknown truck overseas.
