Saturday evening, the Toughest Monster Truck Tour will return to the Tony’s Pizza Events Center!

The Toughest Monster Truck Tour includes several of the nation’s best monster trucks including the Original Monster Truck, Bigfoot, the monster-sized dump truck Dirt Crew, the world’s biggest ATV, Quad Chaos and more competing in nail-biting racing, wow-factor Wheelies and free-for-all monster Truck Freestyle! In addition to the monster truck action, a surprise side act will also be featured.

“If you ask any monster truck driver who has competed in the Toughest Monster Truck Tour, they will tell you that indeed, the Toughest Monster Truck Tour has the most difficult tracks of all the tours, which is why it is called the Toughest Monster Truck Tour,” said Kelly Goldman of the Toughest Monster Truck Tour. “Our tracks always include dirt tracks and old-school crush cars buried in the dirt to create unique obstacles for the trucks to navigate during all aspects of competition. Because of the high level of difficulty, only the best monster truck and drivers are invited to participate.”

Free pit passes are available at Bennett Buick GMC and will get fans in early to walk on the track, see the trucks up close, take photos and get autographs. The Toughest Monster Truck Tour is the only monster truck tour that has a pit party before EVERY performance in ALL cities on the tour and passes are also available for $5 at the point of sale.

The Toughest Monster Truck Tour begins at 7 p.m. on Saturday. Tickets are available at the Tony’s Pizza Events Center Box Office, toughestmonstertrucks.com, TonysPizzaEventsCenter.com and by phone at 888-826-7469. All seats are reserved. Additional fees may apply.
