When I was a kid, Monster Trucks were cool. Watching gargantuan trucks destroy cars and race through mud covered tracks was the ultimate weekend event. Even today, seeing a monster truck brings a slight smirk to my face. They’re a symbol of masculinity, taunting the Prius-driving crowd with their wanton fuel consumption and car crushing prowess. Who’s gonna win in a fight between a monster truck and a hybrid? The monster truck, baby, every time!
If you feel the way that I do about monster trucks, you’re going to be thrilled to hear that the monster trucks Grave Digger and Spiderman are coming to Southern Maryland on Saturday, June 18th, 2011. They’re going to be in Mechanicsville at Budds Creek as the halftime show for the AMA Pro National Motocross Championship. Full info for the weekend is available below as well as on the Budd’s Creek website.
