TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — It was a night of high flying stunts as drivers maneuvered 5 ton trucks through races, wheelie competitions and crushed a lot of cars in the process.Monster Jam is at the BancorpSouth Arena this weekend. The event features six monster trucks in various competitions against each other.Each truck weighs 10 thousand pounds, has 15 hundred horsepower and drivers are judged on their skills in racing, wheelies, donuts and freestyle.

Friday’s event attracted thousands of monster fan enthusiasts. They were cheering for trucks such as “Monster Mutt” “The Xterminator” “The War Wagon” and “Ice Cream Man”. In fact, the “Ice Cream Man’ hosted a special pre-race VIP party and he served ice cream and frozen yogurt. It all happens again Saturday at two with a pre-show pit party and evening show at 7.
