If you like big trucks and loud noises, do I have an event for you!

It was just announced that the Monster Jam Arena Championship East is coming to the Prudential Center in Newark in January.

While there will obviously be competition between the trucks, the organizers also say:

The excitement begins at the Monster Jam Pit Party held on Saturday and Sunday. Fans can see the massive trucks up close, meet their favorite drivers and crews, get autographs, take pictures and enjoy other family-friendly activities. This fun-filled experience is the only place that allows people to get up close access to the Monster Jam teams and get an insider’s look at how these trucks are built to stand up to the competition.

One of the trucks competing is Weston Anderson’s Gravedigger:
