What: Eight of the world's top Monster Trucks-Avenger, Samson, Equalizer, Brutus, Raminator, War Wagon, Tailgator and War Wizard-will battle in a series of one-on-one elimination races over a radical infield obstacle course and then go all out in an incredible freestyle competition.

The Circle K Monster Truck Bash also includes a full slate of CRASHCar racing and a wild and wacky Trailer Race of Destruction where CRASHCars will battle while towing a variety of items including boats, campers and utility trailers.
