3.5 Million Pounds Of Dirt Dumped On Vivint Arena Floor
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Crews have worked non-stop to prepare the floor of Vivint Smart Home Arena for a monster truck event over the weekend.
Despite the New Year holiday, crews were busy in downtown Salt Lake City, hauling 100 truckloads of dirt into the home of the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz’s basketball court was removed before the dirt was brought in.
Arena officials said the dirt weighed in at nearly 3.5 million pounds.
Donovan Mitchell, Rudy Gobert, Joe Ingles and the rest of the Jazz begin the first of three away games at Chicago, Orlando and New Orleans.
The basketball court will need to be back in place by Wednesday, January 8, when Utah takes on the New York Knicks in Salt Lake City.
Vivint will host the Monster Jam Triple Threat Series on Friday and Saturday. The event has been described as a “jaw-dropping, live motor sports experience.”
Drivers will not only be behind the wheel of the big trucks – they also ride ATVs and the smaller “speedster” versions of the trucks.
