Last Saturday, a capacity crowd filled the All American Speedway located @ theGrounds for the 11th annual October classic featuring the stars of NASCAR. The high-profile action didn’t end there for the All American Speedway as this weekend brings a family fun-filled event in the way of Monster Truck action.

Car-crushing, ground-pounding action will thrill spectators this weekend with back-to-back Monster Truck Madness events on Saturday and Sunday. The two-day affair is being offered to insure everyone can get a seat for this high profile, high octane event.

 Saturday’s event will also feature the Limited Modified division in competition. Sunday’s event will include the F4 race cars in action that compete on a regular basis at the speedway.

 Last year’s inaugural monster truck event at All American Speedway thrilled fans with two big shows as well. That was prior to all the improvements that have been made at the facility due to Placer Valley Tourism and Bill McAnally Racing Promotions, who is presenting this special event.

 “The Monster Trucks are crowd favorites every place they go,” event promoter Bill McAnally said. “We had a great turnout last year for the very first visit of the Monster Trucks to Roseville. The exciting action of the giant trucks gets fans of all ages on their feet. We hope to have a lot of local families come out and enjoy this great family-friendly event.”

 A special fan fest pre-party is scheduled each day prior to the show to give fans the chance to see the Monster Trucks up close, take pictures and meet the drivers.

 The ticket booth opens at 4 p.m. Saturday, with the fan fest pre-party scheduled from 5 to 6 p.m. Opening ceremonies are set to get underway at 6 p.m.

 On Sunday, the ticket booth opens at 1 p.m. and the fan fest pre-party is planned from 2 to 3 p.m. with opening ceremonies set for 3 p.m.

 Tickets are $20 for general admission; $15 for military, first responders, and seniors over 65; and $10 for kids between the ages of 2 and 12.
