The biggest monster truck event in Utica's history is coming this summer and you can compete. There's even a race for the kids and rides for everyone all day.

Versus Monster Trucks will be at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds on July 23.

The monsters will be competing in heart-pounding skill competitions and insane freestyle madness. They are all competing to earn a spot in the Series Championship event in Plattsburgh on September 10th.

The whole family can be part of the show. The big kids can enter the Run Whatcha Brung Tough Truck series, an open competition anyone can enter. The little kids can sign up for the Kids Power Wheels Race. Children ages 3-9 are eligible, but they must have their own power wheels vehicle and wear a helmet during the race. Power wheels cannot be modified in any way. Paint, decals, decorations, and cosmetics additions are ok modifications.
