Kicking up the dirt of the arena floor with the treads of their massive tires, fleets of gargantuan vehicles race, jump, and crush at the Monster Truck Summer Nationals. Big names such as Bigfoot, Ghost Ryder, El Loco Hombre, and Outtah Control rev their titanic engines for the grandstand crowds before demolishing cars, vans, and razor scooters that have gone rogue. The mechanical mayhem continues with the Tuff Trucks event, where amateur racers navigate their own pickups through a suspension-punishing obstacle course, and the Rollover Contest, where drivers flip their rides into astounding crashes for cash prizes. Big Ed Beckley will attempt to jump his custom-built, 2,000cc motorcycle over a long line of cars in tribute to E.T.'s famous motorcycle jumping scene.
