Monster X Tour heads to ASU Convocation Center

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Monster trucks will invade the ASU Convocation Center Friday and Saturday, March 13-14,  for the Monster X Tour.  


The freestyle action-packed show features some of the most competitive motor sports professionals driving massive 10,000 pound, car-crushing giants.

"Monster truck freestyle, monster truck racing, monster truck wheelies," announcer Jason Ellins says.  "We've got the lawnmower tractors, which were a favorite here last year. Then we've got a little bit of a surprise.  It's not even on the advertisement  We have a stunt guy coming in and he's going to be doing all kinds of crazy stuff on a motorcycle."

The doors open with a pit party from 6 to 7 p.m.  People will get a chance to meet the drivers and ride in a monster truck. The Monster X Tour start at 7:30 p.m. both nights.  


Ellins says it is a show for the whole family, as well as being very visual. 


"For such a small building, people are going to see monster trucks up in the air," he said. "In a smaller building, instead of going for distance, we're going for height." 

For more on ticket information, visit tickets.astate.edu or call (888) 278-3267.  Tickets range from $5 to $40.
