Monster Mania Returns
“Dirt’s Monster Half Mile”
PITTSBURGH, PA –Get ready as “Monster Mania” is set to invade “Dirt’s Monster Half Mile” this Saturday, June 8th as we present the Diehl of Robinson Monster Mania Monster Truck Show. The circle track racing action will include a complete program for the Diehl of Robinson Super Late Models and the Precise Racing RUSH Pro-Late Models. The first edition of Wacky Wheels Figure Eight Mania will also take place.
“We are pleased to welcome Joe Sylvester and the Bad Habit Monster Truck Team back to PPMS,” commented speedway owner Matt Miley. “This show has been very well received the past several years and is an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our two top classes for the monster truck fans. We hope they will enjoy the exciting racing here and encourage their friends and family to add PPMS to their weekend activities.”
In addition to Bad Habit, the following monster trucks, Eradicator, Backdraft, Rap Attack, Screamin’ Demon and Aftershock, will compete in a complete monster truck program of qualifying, freestyle and racing action.
The Super Late Model Division has not seen any one driver dominate thus far in 2013. Defending divisional champion Michael Norris and Jared Miley are the only two drivers who have scored two victories thus far. Kyle Lukon and veteran Lynn Geisler are the only other two drivers who have been able to reach victory lane in Super Late Model action. Will we see a new face in victory lane this Saturday or a repeat winner?
Kyle Lukon has been the dominate force in the RUSH Pro-Late Model Division so far in 2013. Lukon has tallied four wins and is also the current points leader in the division. Others who have scored wins include Mike Pegher, Jr., Colton Flinner and Joe Martin. Kyle’s sister, Laura, had her best finish of 2013 (third place) in last week’s main event and this determined young lady is looking to return to victory lane very soon.
PPMS management has given the Late Model Sportsman, Hobby Stock and Young Guns competitors this Saturday evening off.
