WHEATLAND, MO. (Oct. 19, 2021) - From up-close, personal interaction with the vehicles and drivers to trick or treating to a grand finale featuring Shockwave's spectacular flames and smoke, family fun is the name of the game at Lucas Oil Speedway this Saturday.
 
The final event of the 2021 season - O'Reilly Auto Parts Outlaw Monster Trucks Eve of Destruction - returns for its annual spectacular with a mission of pleasing all ages.
 
"It starts out all about the kids. Everything we do, we want a family-friendly event," said John Darnell of MAP Motorsports, promoter of the event. "The kids can come early, between 5 and 6:30 and they can go trick or treating at the Monster Trucks. Each driver will have an unlimited supply of candy to give out to the kids.
 
"Then to see the kids’ faces (later) when Monster Trucks fire up, that is the best part.”
 
The eight Monster Trucks invited to this year’s show include Avenger, Barbarian, Black Pearl, Wild Side, Tailgator, Miss Over Bored, Brutus and Over Bored. Also returning is the popular jet-powered truck Shockwave, with an ability to melt down cars with its three jet engines pumping out 36,000 horsepower.
 
Darnell said a special tribute will be given to Doug and Brenda Noelke, long-time owners of Tailgator after Doug Noelke's recent retirement as driver. Tim Jones, who formerly drove Twisted Addiction will debut as the driver of Tailgator on Saturday.
 
A breakdown of the action:
 
Trick or Treat at Pit Party: Fans of all ages are encouraged to wear their favorite Halloween costume and trick or treat with the show performers at the Pit Party on the track prior to the action. They can get autographs and pose for pictures with the trucks and drivers.
