The incredible roar of  2,000-horsepower behemoths will fill Bristol Motor Speedway as eight of the most destructive monster trucks on the planet will unleash their inner beast during Beef 'O' Brady's Monster Truck Madness on Saturday, July 13.

The monster trucks that will be showcased at The Last Great Colosseum include the original monster truck Bigfoot, fan-favorite Quad Chaos, Dirt Crew, Hooked, Stone Crusher, Jester and Bristol newcomers Krakken and Bad Company. The eight trucks will compete in two disciplines: racing and freestyle, which always puts fans on the edge of their seats.

"There's nothing quite like seeing these giant machines performing at full power," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager of Bristol Motor Speedway. "Add on some of the other great activities, including FMX freestyle, drifting, Megasaurus and a monster truck bus ridealong, and you have one entertaining event for the entire family."

Fans should arrive early when the gates open at 5 p.m. for the Beef 'O'Brady's Pit Party to grab a photo beside the legendary titan Bigfoot and meet all eight monster truck drivers who do their best to control these brutes. A ridealong in the monster truck bus is only $10. Beef 'O' Brady's Family Sports Pub will provide balloons and coupons for a free kid's meal, redeemable the following Tuesday at locations in Johnson City, Kingsport and Elizabethton, at the entrance to the pit party. There also will be a post event pit party following the conclusion of the show.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. In addition to the monster trucks, the event will feature a drifting exhibition by East Tennessee Drift, a high-flying acrobatic show by Team FMX motocross and the fan-favorite, car-eating monster, Megasaurus.

Prior to the event, Bigfoot will be on display Friday, July 13, 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the Beef 'O' Brady's located at 173 Hudson Drive, Elizabethton, Tenn. Kids can eat free during those hours at the Elizabethon location, as well as at the Johnson City location at 2913 Boones Creek Rd. and Kingsport location at 300 Clinchfield St.

General admission tickets for this night of family fun are $20 ($25 day of) with advance purchase. Tickets for kids 12 and under are only $5. For more information and to purchase tickets, call 423-BRISTOL or visit
