Monster Trucks Return Aug. 19
The most unique vehicles in motorsports, Monster Trucks are typically 11-feet tall and tip the scales at nearly five tons. Their custom-built, fuel-injected engines produce between 1,500 and 2,000 horsepower and the gargantuan machines can jump 110 to 115 feet-a distance greater than 14 cars side by side-and up to 25 feet in the air.
Brutus, Eradicator, Equalizer, Predator, Nitemare, Backdraft and Hot Tamale are scheduled to join Avenger for an evening of car-crushing destruction.
In addition to the Monster Trucks competing in one-on-one elimination races over a radical obstacle course and then battling in an insane freestyle competition, the CRASHCars will participate in a wild-and-crazy Trailer Race and a jet truck's afterburner will turn a motorized vehicle into a pile of molten metal.
Activities begin with the Circle K Pre-Race Pit Party where fans can meet the legendary Monster Truck drivers, get autographs and have their pictures taken alongside the trucks. Early entry passes for the pit party will be available at area Circle K stores and those with an event ticket and an early entry pass will be admitted beginning at 4 p.m. Spectator gates open at 5 p.m. with the Circle K Pre-Race Pit Party concluding at 6:30. On-track action starts at 7:30 p.m.
If purchased in advance, reserved seats for the Circle K Back-to-School Monster Truck Bash are $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. All seats are $5 more the day of the event while parking for all events at The Dirt Track is free.
Tickets for the Circle K Monster Bash on Saturday night, Aug. 19, can be purchased online here or by calling 1-800-455-FANS.
