Families will literally get to enjoy tons of fun when the 10th annual Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash and Circle K Pre-Race Pit Party return to The Dirt Track @ Charlotte Motor Speedway on Saturday.

Festivities will begin with the Pre-Race Pit Party featuring an autograph session, meet and greets with the Monster Truck drivers and photo opportunities with the enormous racing machines. Ticket holders can gain early entry to the Pit Party by presenting a Thirst Buster Cup purchased from any Circle K store.

The first 1,000 attendees to enter the gate will receive a Circle K gift bag full of various coupons and the first 2,000 will receive a free commemorative poster that can be utilized for driver autographs.

Kids and adults can also enter for a chance to win one of two Kawasaki dirt bikes given away by Monster Energy. The winners' names will be announced during the Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash.

Equalizer, War Wizard, Nitemare, Raminator, Mopar Magic and Samson are among the 10 gargantuan machines headlining the evening filled with car-crushing destruction on one of the world's longest Monster Truck courses. Their custom-built, fuel-injected engines produce between 1,500 and 2,000 horsepower and the mammoth vehicles can jump 110 to 115 feet-a distance greater than 14 cars side by side.

In addition to Monster Truck mayhem, the crazy CRASHCar Trailer Race of Destruction and a spectacular stunt by Super Bob Airborne will thrill the crowd.

Lug Nut, the World's Fastest Mascot, and Lugette, his seldom-seen girlfriend will also make an appearance at The Dirt Track.

Early entry for the Circle K Pre-Race Pit Party starts at 4 p.m. and spectator gates open at 5 p.m. The party concludes at 6:30 p.m. and opening ceremonies are scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

If purchased in advance, reserved seats for Saturday's Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. Tickets are available online or by calling the speedway's ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS.
