      Monster trucks gear up for big show

      There was one vehicle that wasn't for sale on the Frei Chevy lot in Marquette Thursday. The monster truck, Robo Machine, was on display as part of a promotion for the upcoming Monster-X tour in Escanaba this Friday and Saturday. The drivers come from all over to compete in races, wheelie competitions and freestyle events.

      "This show's going to be better than most shows that you'll see. It's a free-for-all basically; they're definitely going to get their money's worth because a lot of the guys that are coming have big egos, so we're going to compete against each other so the best man is going to have to win," said Shane Phreed, the Robo Machine driver.

      The Monster-X tour will be outdoors at the U.P. State Fairgrounds in Escanaba. The shows Friday and Saturday start at 7:30 p.m.

      Advance tickets are $18 for adults and $10 for kids. For more information on the tour or to order your tickets, click here.
