Home to one of the fastest tracks in the nation, Firebird International Raceway hums with horsepower and roars from the crowd during the 14th annual NAPA Auto Parts Monster Truck Nationals. Each event-filled afternoon begins with a party in the pit, where fans can mingle with the drivers and their titanic rides. Outfitted with airplane engines, jet dragsters scorch the track to begin the big show, hitting speeds of up to 300 mph—barely surpassing the velocity of a tortoise fitted with roller skates. For the main event, Monster Jam monster trucks, such as Avenger and Bounty Hunter, rumble into the arena to perform wheelies and donuts, and daredevils wring their handlebars as they attempt death-defying motorcycle stunts. As a grand finale to both days, the 40-foot tall, 30-ton Robosaurus drags its mechanical limbs into the spotlight while spewing 20-foot flames, an uncomfortable side effect of eating jalapeño-filled sedans.
