Monster Trucks Rumble Into Proctor This Weekend
If you're looking for some exciting motorsports actions this weekend, make a trip to Proctor and watch some monster trucks wreak havoc.
The Monster Truck Racing League makes a stop at the Halvor Lines Speedway Friday, July 29th at 7:30 PM and Saturday, July 30th at 3 PM. The event is part of the South St Louis County Fair which starts today and runs through Sunday.
Tickets are on sale in advance here and will set you back $12 for kids 3-12 and $25 for adults 13 and up. The price of tickets will go up at the gate and does not include admission to the fair, so that will be an additional charge.
Tickets do include access to the Monster Truck Fan Zone which opens Friday from 5:30 PM until 7 PM and Saturday from 1 PM - 2:30. In the fan zone, you can meet the drivers, get some autographs, enjoy a Monster Truck ride (extra cost), and grab some Official Souvenirs before the show.
Monster trucks scheduled to be in Proctor this weekend include the Carolina Crusher, Awesome Kong, Wicked Sickness, and more. Plus there will be a freestyle exhibition of one of the top pro mini monster trucks in the world and national and regional pro quad racers compete in what should be some insane racing action.
The show happens rain or shine and no refunds are offered, plus keep in mind that if you bring anyone under 3, they must sit on a parent's lap. It also might be worth considering bringing some ear protection, if you've never been to a monster truck show before, they can get VERY loud.
Here is a video of a similar show that happened recently in New York that includes some of the trucks that will be making their way to the Northland this weekend.
