MONSTER TRUCKS: At the end of the night, something will be upside down, on fire or in total destruction.
That was the guarantee of 24-year veteran monster truck driver Kreg Christensen.
Coming all the way from Salt Lake City in America, Christensen and six of the biggest and meanest trucks will rev it up at the Rockhampton Showgrounds on Saturday night.
Rockhampton has seen monster trucks, but nothing like this.
"I have never done drugs, I have always campaigned not to do drugs but it is an adrenaline rush, even 24 years later you get fully hyped up and ready to go,” Christensen said of the experience.
"The best part is flying through the air. It is kind of like when you were a kid and your chair gets pulled out behind you... that sensation is the closest feeling you get when you are in the air.
"I travel all over the world for this, been coming to Australia for six years. It is totally safe for spectators. I have eight kids and 21 grand kids and it is safe enough that I would have all 21 sit in the front row and watch me.”
The man closest to the action is organiser Rusty Bell. He said it was a night for ages five-95.
"This is a show that has never been seen here before, we have world class drivers and world class trucks,” Bell explained.
"People of all ages will be hanging from the fence.
"They are quite brutal. It is a wild ride the way they throw the trucks around. It is just awesome, we are talking about the six best monster trucks in the country.
"It is pretty obvious at the end of the night who wins, the guy with the most destruction caused or whoever the crowd yells at the most.”
Gates open at 3pm and the fun gets under way at 3:30pm with an hour-long pit party which is the the perfect photo opportunity to get up close to the giant trucks and meet the drivers ahead of the show starting at 5pm.
