Extra laps…The Monster Truck are set to return to Saratoga over the May long weekend.
California Kid and Rockstar will return to Saratoga to put on yet another amazing show. Last year we saw Rockstar hit one of the craziest jumps ever at Saratoga, flying over 40 feet in the air and landing on his roof on the front stretch.
Accompanying the high flying Monster trucks will be the I.M.C.A Modifieds, who are making their first appearance of the year, Hornet cars, Roadrunners, Crash to pass cars and the Bomber cars on Sunday, with Sunday being a cheaper night for all the fans.
