Area Scouts are invited to enjoy an evening of Monster Truck racing followed by a night of sleeping under the stars in Charlotte Motor Speedway's infield Saturday, Aug. 14, during the fourth annual Monster Truck Scout Camporee.


Hosted by Charlotte Motor Speedway and area Scout Councils, the camporee is conducted in conjunction with the Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash at The Dirt Track at Charlotte.


The sleepover package includes a ticket to the Monster Truck event, a camp-out in the Charlotte Motor Speedway infield, a commemorative sleepover patch and a light breakfast Sunday morning.


Tickets for the sleepover package are $15 for children ages 12 and under and $22 for adults. A commemorate sleepover hat can also be purchased for $10. Tickets for scouts who only want to attend the Circle K Monster Truck Bash are just $18 for adults and $9 for children.


The Circle K Monster Truck Bash will feature the world's top monster trucks. Equalizer, Raminator, Samson, War Wizard, Brutus, Hot Tamale and Avenger are among those expected to compete in a series of one-on-one eliminations over a radical infield obstacle course and then go all out in an incredible freestyle competition.


In addition to the Monster Truck show, the FASTRAK Late Model Series will compete in a $2,000-to-win feature that was originally scheduled for May, but was postponed due to inclement weather. The make-up FASTRAK Triple Crown race will follow the Monster Truck freestyle event at approximately 9:45 p.m.


Festivities begin with the Circle K Pre-Race Pit Party from 4-6 p.m., where fans can meet the monster truck drivers, obtain autographs and have their pictures taken with the enormous racing machines. Ticket holders can gain early entry to the Pit Party by purchasing a Thirst Buster Cup at any Circle K store and presenting the empty cup at the gate.


Spectator gates open at 4 p.m. and opening ceremonies are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m.


Reserved tickets can be purchased online at www.charlottemotorspeedway.com. Scout packages and reserved tickets are available by calling the speedway's ticket office at 1-800-455-FANS (3267).
