BRISTOL, Tenn. — The MetroPCS Monster Truck Mash will bring eight monster trucks and the first trick-or-treat party of the year to celebrate the Halloween spirit at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday, Oct. 27.

Monster trucks scheduled to perform include Snake Bite, X-Termigator, Ice Cream Man, Black Stallion, Overkill, Buckshot, Tailgator and Predator, and the trucks will compete in two disciplines: racing and freestyle.

"We're looking forward to celebrating Halloween with some of the coolest monster trucks there are," said Jerry Caldwell, executive vice president and general manager at Bristol Motor Speedway. "Everyone should come and take advantage of the first trick-or-treat opportunity of the season by dressing up in their favorite costume and collecting treats in the infield."

The gates will open at 1 p.m. for the MetroPCS Monster Truck Trunk or Treat Party with kids encouraged to dress in their Halloween costumes. All eight monster truck drivers will be available for meet-and-greets and will pass out candy to trick-or-treaters in the infield.

The pit party will also feature a best costume competition, and visitors can take a ride in the Sasquatch monster truck bus for $10 per person.

The show will begin at 3 p.m. In addition to the monster trucks, the event will feature Bandit big-rig racing as well as a jet dragster, jet outhouse and jet Polaris RZR.

Visit any participating MetroPCS store in October to enter for a chance to win tickets to the event. On Friday, Oct. 26, the Bristol MetroPCS store at 971 Volunteer Parkway will host a monster truck party. 

General admission tickets are $20 in advance or $25 the day of the event. Tickets for kids 12 and under are $5. Call 423-BRISTOL or visit
