MONSTER TRUCK THROWDOWN
July 29, 2012
Pit Party 3:30 - 4:30 PM
OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
This year, 6 of the nation's best monster trucks will tear down Thunder Mountain Speedway with all out destruction, power, and speed as these 10,000lb mechanical beasts roar to life spouting nearly 1,600 horsepower in their alcohol blown engines!
Capable of pulverizing motor homes, busses, and cars, the monster trucks will compete in 3 competitions! First off, the monsters will take to the sky with a vertical wheelie contest with the object of the game to get their truck as vertical and high in the air as possible! Next, we'll line the trucks up head to head and race through the bracket until one winner is determined and crowned racing champion! Last but not least, the fan favorite, FREESTYLE! Each monster truck will take to the track and annihilate any obstacle in their path on a complete demolition mission judged by the fans!
The all-star lineup
of monster trucks includes 2 Time World Freestyle Champion Jim
Koehler driving his truck, Avenger along with Jon Zimmer in
Excaliber, and 25 year monster truck veteran, Dan Patrick in the
Samson machine! Plus the wild man, Chris Bergeron in the Brutus 3D
dog monster truck, West Virginia's own monster truck the West
Virginia Mountaineer driven by RB Moler,
and Andy Hoffman driving his truck called Nitemare!
Fans will also get to take a once in a lifetime ride on the Excaliber monster ride truck for only $5!
The action starts at 5PM on Sunday, July 29, 2012! Fans with a valid ticket will get free entry into the pit party from 3:30 to 4:30 to meet their favorite divers and get up close and personal with the monster trucks!
