Monster Jam revs up Friday night

Posted: Updated:

Monster trucks have taken over the Ford Center this weekend for the Monster Jam show.

The first show starts at 7 Friday night.

This truck in the picture is Bad News Travels Fast. It's one of the trucks you'll see this weekend at the Ford Center for Monster Jam.

The truck itself is over 10 feet tall. The tires each weigh close to a thousand pounds.

The driver of the truck, Brandon Derrow says it's been his dream since he was little to be a monster truck driver.

He says his favorite part of Monster Jam is meeting the fans at the pit parties, but he also loves racing and of course popping wheelies. 

Derrow says the energy of this show is contagious.

"TV doesn't do monster trucks justice for sure, just the jumpin, the loud, smellin the alcohol, smellin the tires smoke when you're on concrete and all the dust and everything like that. it just adds to the whole experience," said Derrow.

The event is at 7 Friday night.

There's also two Saturday at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. tickets are still available.

You can get them on ticketmaster.com or at the Ford Center box office.
