Monster Trucks returning to Civic Center

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – One of the most popular and loudest events at the Albany Civic Center is returning.   The American Monster Truck Association will bring its Road 2 Destruction tour to Albany next month.    

Two to three thousand people typically turn out for the show, which comes to Albany about every two years.  Fans can expect all the usual acts, monster trucks smashing cars, motocross, and lawnmower races.    

But Assistant City Manager Wes Smith says anything could happen.  He said, "Some years back, one of the trucks actually wrecked into the wall of the Civic Center and cause significant damage on a Friday night and we had the best Saturday crowd we've ever had  I don't know if we want that, but we do want folks to come in and have a good time."

Monster trucks will be at the Civic Center the 25th and 26th of February.  Ticket prices start at eight dollars.
