Some of the biggest and baddest trucks in the world are roaring into Salina. The Toughest Monster Truck Tour is making a stop at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center on Saturday night, and trucks are already arriving.
Last year, Bigfoot came back with a vengeance after losing the Tour Championship to rival Snake Bite the year before. The competition was tough at all events in 2018, with less than 10 points separating Bigfoot and second place winner Quad Chaos going into the Championship Weekend in Grand Forks-but Bigfoot stayed the course and won. In 2019, the competition will be fiercer than ever, with Quad Chaos looking to redeem himself, 2017 Champion Snake Bite vowing to take back the title, and the rest of the field looking to make an upset.
In addition to the monster truck action, a surprise thrilling side act will be featured. It may be Freestyle Motocross, a car-eating, fire-breathing mechanical dinosaur or battling intergalactic robots.
Trucks on the tour this year include:
- BIGFOOT driven by Larry Swim
- Quad Chaos driven by Aaron Cain
- Dirt Crew driven by Jerry Beck
- Dragon Slayer driven by Kreg Christensen
- Wicked driven by Corey Clark
Jerry Beck and his truck Dirt Crew were already in town on Thursday. Beck and his truck were at the Central Mall.
Marjie Anderson from the Tony’s Pizza Events Center told KSAL News tickets for the show have bee a “hot item”. They are selling well, but there are still tickets left.
For those who do not yet have tickets Anderson suggested getting then on Friday. “That way you won’t have to stand outside in line in the cold on Saturday,” she concluded.
The Toughest Monster Truck Tour begins at 7pm Saturday. Tickets are available at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center, www.tonyspizzaeventscenter.com or by phone at 888-826-7469. All seats are reserved. Additional fees may apply.
