Monster trucks invade Saratoga Speedway

Two-day weekend racing card also features Bombers, Dwarfs and IMCA Modifieds

CALIFORNIA KID IS one of three monster trucks coming to Saratoga Speedway for two days of car-crushing action.

 

 

 

 

 

 

After a week of sun, Mother Nature brought the rain to Saratoga Speedway on Saturday night.

The Bomber cars, Dwarf cars and the I.M.C.A Modifieds were all on the racing card for the Brian Sullivan Memorial night, which has been re-scheduled for May 25 when the Bomber cars race next.

This weekend, May 18-19, marks the first monster truck show of the year, featuring three amazing trucks. Rockstar and California Kid return to the Black Creek oval while Reversed Racer is new to the speedway.

Rockstar and California Kid have been the two best trucks over the past three years, bringing huge wheelies and massive air every time they visit, and Reversed Racer should be no different.

These three trucks are all part of the Monster Trucks Mafia, a group of some of the best monster trucks from all across North America, proving that these trucks know how to put on a show.

If you want to take a look at these trucks before race day, they will be on display at the Canadian Tire in Courtenay, Thursday, Friday and Saturday until noon.

The hard-hitting Crash to Pass, Hornets, Roadrunners and Figure 8s will accompany the monster trucks over the two-night show, making this an event you won’t want to miss.
