Antioch, CA — After a week off, activity resumes at Antioch Speedway this Friday and Saturday nights. The popular Malicious Monster Truck Insanity Tour makes their second and final appearance of the year.

These Monster Truck competitors are in high demand on the West Coast, and they were well received in their previous visit back in May.

Last time, Identity Theft and Rock Star proved to be popular with the fans along with the fire-breathing Monster Truck Spitfire, California Kid and Weekend Warrior. These five trucks compete in various contests throughout the night, including freestyle, speed and one-on-one competition. From the moment the show starts, the fans are treated to non-stop entertainment.

During the intermission, fans can buy rides on the special Identity Theft or Sapphire ride along trucks. Rides are also offered at the end of the show. The Jet Cart is also a popular halftime attraction. Fans feel the heat from the fire burning at the back of the cart as it streaks down the straightaway at a rapid pace. Friday and Saturday night offer two opportunities to check out the show, and you won’t want to miss it.

This weekend begins a string of big events that will take place one right after the other. Championship Night #1 on September 17th will feature the popular IMCA Modifieds, IMCA Sport Modifieds, IMCA Stock Cars, Pacific Coast General Engineering Hobby Stocks and the Xtreme Limited Late Models. Only 5 points separate Nick DeCarlo from Kellen Chadwick in a thrilling IMCA Modified title battle that is sure to go down to the final checkered flag.
