Event Details

Get ready VIRGINIA! MONSTER NATION presented by Brown Ram is coming to Charlottesville and turning John Paul Jones Arena into the SCENE OF THE SMASH! Monster Nation Monster Trucks will rumble into John Paul Jones Arena with 1,800 tons of dirt and smashed metal on April 12th and 13th 2014! What has become the premier monster truck event promises to continue wowing fans with 10,000 pound Monster Machines and much, much more jam packed into 2 hours of high-flying horsepower. Tickets go on sale this Saturday, February 22, 2014 at noon.

A stacked field of Monsters including OVER BORED, TOXIC, RED SOLO TRUCK, WALKING TALL and FATAL ATTRACTION are looking to take the title of the Scene of the Smash Champion!

"Monster Nation is a Monster Truck show done right!" one Facebook user commented. The Monsters will battle in three separate competitions during each performance. The tailgate-ripping Wheelie Contest is first, where each driver will attempt to stand his 10' tall truck straight in the air. The next event is elimination-style head-to-head racing around an oval course. But what will certainly complete the scene is the no rules, no holds barred Demolition Freestyle competition. The entire floor of John Paul Jones Arena will be open season for the SCENE OF THE SMASH Freestyle competition!

And if the Monster Truck competition isnít enough action, Monster Nation will be featuring the most powerful SMART CAR on the planet! This insanely powerful 2,000 horsepower, jet-powered SMART CAR features a GE T58-3 turbine converted to thrust, capable of 200 mph! This is the same engine used on the heavy lifting Sikorsky Sea King, the President's Marine 1, and the Black Hawk helicopters.

And to complete the scene, Monster Nation is bringing the car-eating, fire-breathing, transforming dinosaur-robot, TRANSAURUS! No car is safe in the path of TRANSAURUS!

Fans can meet the stars of Monster Nation SCENE OF THE SMASH and get up close to the Monster Trucks before each performance at the Brown Ram Monster Nation Pit Party.
