Tune of Destruction
This is Miami-Dade County, home of Chevys riding high, but you aint a real big-timer until youre sittin on 66-inch tires and youve got 1,475 horsepower on a 540 Merlin engine. Thats Gravedigger, the most famous monster truck in the world. And you can see it live at Dolphin Stadium as it battles the likes of El Toro Loco and Gunslinger in world-championship-qualifying races and freestyle competitions. The Monster Jam has been coming to Miami for more than a decade, and weve never tired of the smell of burning oil mixed with herb smoke and the sound of crunching steel and roaring engines.
For those who want to feel the power firsthand, ticket holders can take a free ride in a monster truck. Simply pick up your ride pass at participating Metro PCS locations, check monsterjamonline.com, and show up at the stadium between 1 and 7 p.m. The Monster Jam assures high-flying jumps, car-crushing landings, and fun for everyone.
