While Canada celebrates Queen Victoria’s birthday on the May Long Weekend, the Comox Valley will also be celebrating the return of two king-size monster trucks to Saratoga Speedway.
This Saturday and Sunday, California Kid and Rock Star are scheduled to bring their show to the Black Creek oval.
“Last year, Rock Star hit one of the craziest jumps ever at Saratoga, flying over 40 feet in the air and landing on his roof on the front stretch,” recalls Speedway spokesperson Terry Guest.
Accompanying the high-flying monster trucks will be the I.M.C.A Modifieds (making their first appearance of the year), Hornet cars, Roadrunners, Crash to Pass cars both nights with the Bomber cars joining in on Sunday.
The weather forecast looks promising for the two rain-or-shine shows. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and racing starts at 7 p.m.
Saturday’s admission is $20 adult, $15 students (with card) and $10 children (under 12). Sunday’s tickets are $15 adult, $12 students and $5 children.
