Monster Truck Radio Promotion Draws Crowd at Biloxi Wendy's|
There is something about monster trucks. Maybe it is the sense of power, or the carnival colors. Or maybe the crowd likes a giveaway radio promotion.
Regardless, the upcoming
Monster Jam 2005
monster truck show at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum this Friday and
Saturday night is sure to be well attended - if the small crowd at the Highway
90 Wendy's Restaurant in Biloxi is any example.
Big power is part of the appeal of these trucks. Sudden Impact has an 1,800 horsepower V8 mounted midway on the chassis behind the driver. Lagarde says the body on the truck is a stylized Ford Ranger, but he says the truck has appeared at other races with a different body.
K99 radio personality Bob Dever was on hand for the event at Wendy's. But it was clearly the truck that was the star of the show. Kids wanted to be near it and stood in awe at tires almost as tall as their parents.
