Penrith is set to erupt on Easter Saturday when Monster Slam rolls into town – and the Penrith City Gazette is giving away two double passes.

It has been several years since the size and excitement of a four tonne, 1500 horsepower Monster Truck has performed in the area, but it is guaranteed the fans around Penrith have never seen a show quite like Monster Slam.

The epic family night out, produced by Monster Events is what could be loosely termed as choreographed mayhem.

“Our show is directed toward the kids, we keep them happy, stay interactive with them throughout the whole show and that keeps mum and dad happy,” spokesman Tom Hudson said.

Six of the very best monster trucks from around the world will be unleashed at the showground, promising fans a world class performance. Along with the best machinery, Monster Slam brings top-notch drivers, headed by the one and only Kreg Christensen from Salt Lake City, Utah. Kreg's ability to make a monster truck dance has had fans in every corner of the world watch in awe for over 24 years of his career.

Leading the Aussies assault on the Americans is Hayden McCleary from the Sunshine Coast. At only 21 years of age, Hayden is arguably Australia's leading monster truck driver with over six years behind the wheel of one of these monsters.

All six Monster Trucks will compete in sky-wheelie competitions, racing and an insane freestyle contest. Throw in some crazy soon-to-be-announced support acts to overload the senses, and you have a show that the family will talk about long after they leave the grounds.

Gates will open Easter Saturday, April 15, at 12.30pm at the Penrith Showground. Get in early to enjoy the free pit party between 1.30pm and 2.30pm, with the show starting at 3pm.

Tickets are available at REPCO Penrith or online at

The Gazette has two double passes to giveaway. To enter, simply email your name and daytime contact number with Monster Truck Giveaway in the subject line to before 4pm on Friday, April 14.
