exciting event,” said the Fair’s General Manager Robin Jennison. “The All Star
Monster Truck Tour, as well as the Demolition Derby, will offer motorsport
enthusiasts, young kids and fans of monster trucks an opportunity to come to
the Nex-Tech Wireless Grandstand to enjoy two high-energy shows.”
The All Star Monster Truck Tour will include the biggest
names from across the United States to do battle on the Fair’s large grandstand
infield. BIGFOOT will take on two Kansas natives: the former Freestyle World
Champion BOUNTY HUNTER, as well as the top female competitor SCARLET BANDIT.
Also part of the show is the legendary MONSTER PATROL out of Texas. These All
Star Monster Trucks will be competing in an insane best trick competition, full
throttle obstacle course racing and a no rules freestyle battle.
Joining the All Star Monster Trucks will be Midwest’s best
Pro Rough Truck competitors racing over a course of dirt jumps and tight turns
against the clock.
“You can expect a lot of destruction,” said Jennison. “These
massive vehicles will race and crash, get huge air, do wheelies and all kinds
of things. They put on a great show.”
