The "Thunderslam" Monster Trucks Motorsport Spectacular is coming to the dirt at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley Friday and Saturday, March 20 and 21.
Free Style Monster Trucks such as Nasty Boy, Public Disturbance, Unnamed Untamed, Ms Monster Moose, Half Pint and more will crush cars like bugs, jump off large mounds of dirt, compete in Chicago-style racing, do giant power wheelies and donuts, and participate in a "winner takes all" competition with a spectacular finale using a pyramid of cars and vans.
As a special feature, drivers will present an Extreme Free Style Motorcycle Show just like on the X-Games and Dew Tours, jumping ramp to ramp and doing tricks over 60 feet in the air.
Plus, fierce drivers and riders compete in Tuff Trucks and motorcycle racing for the largest purse ever in a "winner takes all" competition.
Organizers invite local racers to bring their Big Boys and compete on a track of humps, bumps, and jumps. Local motorcycle racers can bring their Bad Boys and participate in motocross racing.
The first 500 kids receive a free Monster Truck Show gift. Come early and ride in a real monster truck at the free pit party and meet the drivers and riders for autographs and photos. Gates open at 6 p.m., pit party starts at 6 p.m. and ends about 7 p.m. and the
show starts at 7:30 p.m. and ends at approximately 9:45 p.m. with a post-show autograph session.
Ticket prices start at $10 general admission, while supplies last. General admission tickets increase $3 day of show. All ticket holders have access to the free pit party.
