Monster trucks come to Long Island

The Monster Jam features 10,000-pound monster trucks, with 66-inch-tall tires, racing and doing freestyle tricks such as jumping over cars, flips, doughnuts (full spins) and wheelies. Not to mention loud revving engines packing 1,500 to 2,000 horsepower. You'll need earplugs.
