While the trucks will be the main attraction, some of the real fun will come before the show.
An hour before everything gets underway, drivers will be out and about mingling with ticket holders at the pit party. You’ll have the chance to talk with them, see their trucks and even take a ride. They’ll have bounce houses, face painting and plenty of souvenirs to purchase.
Following the pit party, the show will start and be filled with all the flipping, jumping and crashing you could want.
Trucks will destroy cars by running over them and jumping over them as you look on from the stands.
And they’re not just big trucks, they’re true monster trucks — 12 feet tall, 15,000 pounds and 2,000 horsepower.
The Nitro Motocross Team will be on hand, too, circling the Sphere of Fear and jumping overhead. A human cannonball will make an appearance and Extreme Rock Crawlers will be doing tricks.
