Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines.
Now, drive on over to the Victoria Community Center on Friday night and watch the pros really rev their engines - it promises to be of monstrous proportions.
Outlaw Monster Trucks is hosting its winter nationals show for the fourth year in the Crossroads, and prospective spectators had better prepare for the deafening roar of trucks kicking up dirt and flying over rows of cars.
Steve Querico, the show's promoter, said the idea behind these monster truck shows was to give some family fun entertainment to smaller markets.
Victoria, he said, has always been there with arms wide open.
"This is a great town that appreciates family entertainment," he said. "This is what this is really all about."
But it's not only about watching big trucks roar through the community center. It's about the spectators, too.
A track will be built for those wanting to bring quad racers to do some of their own racing, Querico said.
The world-famous big Monster Patrol truck, the largest truck at the show that stands 12-feet high and weighs 10,000 pounds, will be one of the highlights. The world's wildest jet fire truck will also be showcasing its loud and flashy self.
It will be a night of awe-inspired tricks.
"There will be different trucks that we haven't had in the past," he said.
