Carlisle Truck Nationals featuring monster trucks on August 7-9

| 5/5/2015

Heavy-duty, light-duty, dump trucks, even monster trucks. They can all be found Aug. 7-9 at this year’s Carlisle Truck Nationals at Carlisle Fairgrounds in Carlisle, Pa.

After a one-year hiatus, the monster truck and compact car-destroying Megasaurus is expected to return this year. Also returning is Megasaurus’ nemesis, Transaurus. A Mega Metal Monster Showdown looks to be in the making. Feeding times for the Monster trucks are slated for once on Friday and twice on Saturday.

Hall of Fame Monster Truck Competitor Diehl Wilson will be driving Virginia Giant, another legendary Monster truck. Also featured is Raminator, named the “World’s Fastest Monster Truck” by Guinness World Records.

The Big Rig Show and Shine is Aug. 8. Judging will take place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Proud owners will be displaying glistening and polished trucks while competing for top prizes. Other truck events include burnouts, high/low truck battle, low truck limbo, and a drop and drag contest.

In addition to the trucking events, showgoers can take advantage of the family entertainment at the Phantom Fun Zone, pedal karts, scavenger hunts and more. There will also be the swap meet and midway.
