The Extreme Monster Truck Nationals rallies motorsports fans in a high-octane evening of crunching metal, thrilling stunts, and extreme decibels. Hard-driving men and women compete for cash prizes in jaw-dropping wheelie and donut contests, freestyle battles, and metric tons of slam poetry. Among the trucks making an appearance, The Crashmasters Racing Team commands Brute Force, a four-wheeled tribute to the U.S. Armed Forces, and the 2010 Rookie Driver of the Year, Isaias Morales, takes the high-octane reins of Hot Tamale. During the evening, the fire-breathing mechanical dinosaur known as Megasaurus stomps onto the scene, roaring as it crunches cars in its jaw as if they were a stegosaurus' fiberglass plates. Stuntman Ted Culbertson attempts the first-ever backflip indoors on a snowmobile, adding a touch of nimbleness to the mix of giants, and all attendees have the chance to ride in a monster truck at intermission and before and after the show.
