Date night at the Monster Truck Show

It’s good to do different things every now and then. Friday night we ventured out to the Monster Truck Show at the Ector County Coliseum. The arena where the show was held was close quarters for the monster trucks.

I was a little partial to Bigfoot since it’s from St. Louis, MO.  It was fun to watch Bigfoot maneuver the tight arena.

Fun fact, Bigfoot jumped a 727 airplane in 1999.  It wasn’t this particular Bigfoot truck pictured.

Each of the monster trucks in the show were very different.

Between the monster truck rounds were the stock truck races which were equally as entertaining as the main event.

Wild Thing

The driver of Wild Thing was very animated after each run. Notice the actual Wild Thing on the hood of the truck. There was an added element to the truck as the animal would stand up as the truck went over the ramps.

Then there was the little red car that could with the smoke stack. This car was definitely one of a kind! It was barely hanging on as it zipped around the track, but it did manage to kick some butt. Best yet, if you are looking to buy a car for a new driver, this one could be the one!

The night was a lot of fun! It’s good to change things up and do something different.
