Fans at the Nevada County Fairgrounds Arena Friday night were treated to a rip-roaring good time as monster trucks and tough trucks showed off their mechanical magnitude for all to enjoy.

Local driver Andrew Peckham, in “The Patriot”, showed off in front of the home town crowd, winning the monster truck race.

The automotive beasts will be on display once again tonight starting at 7 p.m. The Rotary Destruction Derby closes out the arena events Sunday.
