Monster Truck Destruction Tour - Sept. 8-9

There is only one way to watch monster trucks - outdoors!

No choking on the smell of fuel or having to cover your child's ears because the noise is so deafening.

With lots of room outdoors at the Gordon Badger Stadium at Evergreen Park the monsters can do what they're supposed to do - race and jump and speed around the infield without having to slam on the brakes and bump and bounce in a confined space.

Tickets for the Sept. 8-9 show will be going on sale soon. Watch the Monster Truck Destruction Tour website at http://www.monstertruckdestructiontour.com for more information.

Oh, by the way, Monster Truck Destruction Tour was recently rated as one of the best monster truck shows in North America!
