Carlisle, PA – A staple of the Carlisle Truck Nationals, presented by A&A Auto Stores is monster truck action! In 2019, the fun includes Over Bored, Miss Over Bored and Transaurus

The show itself starts early on Friday, August 2, with Monster truck shows taking place Friday, twice Saturday and once more Sunday. Hosted by Diehl Wilson, owner of the on-site Virginia Giant ride truck, Over Bored and Miss Over Bored will square off to the delight of enthusiasts of all ages.

Over Bored & Miss Over Bored: Monster Jam trucks Over Bored and Miss Over Bored come to Carlisle for the first time ever. These mid-western based trucks are a husband and wife team. 

Virginia Giant Ride Truck: As mentioned above, this truck is owned by former Monster Jam regular Diehl Wilson. This truck is interactive. Guests can climb aboard the iconic truck and go for a heart pounding, car crushing, no holds barred edge of their seat ride.

Additional fun features include the return of the metal eating, car crushing, fire breathing Transaurus. Transaurus is the world's ONLY jet powered, transforming, car eating dinosaur. This beast is hungry and needs to be fed. The feeding will take place on Saturday ONLY of truck weekend. Before, during and after its feast, it just might belch fire too!

A ticket for the Carlisle Truck Nationals is just $15 with kids 12 and under are free. All monster truck shows are FREE with paid admission to the grounds, though a nominal fee does apply for rides on the Virginia Giant. Seating goes quickly for each show, so guests are encouraged to arrive early, enjoy all that the truck show has to offer and then find a spot.
