Monster trucks coming to Saratoga Speedway

World's youngest monster truck driver, Rosalee Ramer, here with her father Kelvin

Blown Income is one of the monster trucks scheduled to make their Saratoga Speedway debut this weekend.

For the second time in the past three weeks, Mother Nature opened up the skies, washing away a night of racing at Saratoga Speedway on July 25.

The evening was scheduled to feature the I.M.C.A Modifieds, Dwarf cars, Old Time Modified Stock cars and the Bomber cars.

After a much anticipated wait, the biggest monster truck show of the year is finally upon us this coming weekend.

Wild Flower, Time Flys, Blown Income and Tow Monster are set to make their debuts at Saratoga over the long weekend.

The father-and-daughter team of Rosalee and Kevin Ramer are the first to ever attend Saratoga as a father-daughter duo. Rosalee is also the youngest female monster truck driver in the world, starting her career at the age of 16 and turning 17 back in June.

Blown Income is a brand new truck out of Vancouver Island, the first local truck to come to the speedway. Finally Tow Monster comes from to us from Washington D.C, with Seth Fisher behind the wheel of the over 1,600-horse powered machine. The Hornet cars, Crash to Pass cars, and Roadrunners will also be on the card.
