Badlands Hosting Fan Festival Ahead Of Monster Truck Event

Beginning on Thursday, you can head out to Badlands Pawn for a big “fan fest” to get pumped up for the Traxxas Monster Truck Destruction Tour.

The monster trucks take the field at Badlands Motor Speedway Friday and Saturday– you can even meet the drivers and check out the trucks up close!

On Thursday , Tom Savage, General Manager of Badlands Motor Speedway, joined Kevin Hurd and Sarah Blakely on KDLT News Today to talk more about both events.

The fan fest takes place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and is free to attend on Wednesday. The trucks taking part in the weekend event will also be on display. The deli, box office and pawn shop will also be open as well.

The monster truck show will take place on Friday and Saturday. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. There will be a pit party from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. where visitors can check out the trucks on the front stretch at the racetrack.

Event s like this give the racing track more use, which was the goal when Badlands purchased it.

“It didn’t make sense that it was only open like 17 Sundays a year.” Savage said that was the thinking when Badlands was looking to buy it and provide more options for visitors.

Tickets for the monster truck event can be purchased at the Badlands box office, racetrack or
