LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Laredo is being invaded by monsters! And although these monsters are big and loud, they're not the kind you find in the closet or under the bed.
The Monster Jam monster truck show is coming to the L.E.A. this weekend. The popular event returns to town by popular demand.
"This is gonna be an awesome show," said El Diablo truck driver J.P. "There's just-crushed cars, no dirt, so it's a whole different element that we do with Monster Jam."
Fans young and old will get to see these trucks run at 1,500 horsepower during races, and then everybody will be treated to some exciting freestyle action.
"We need to unleash this 1,500 horsepower, but we also have to contain it inside this event. It's gonna be pretty awesome and it's a test of our skill and we love doing it cause it kinda keeps us honed in on what we know how to do."
There are two shows on Saturday at 2:00 pm and at 7:30 pm, with another show on Sunday at 2:00 pm. There will be a Party in the Pits for fans to get autographs and pictures with drivers. That's at 11:30 am.
