SORRY - this originally posted on May 12, 2011 - and the contest is now closed. I did want to highlight the DISCOUNT you can still get on tickets to attend the event!

Thanks -

I really wish I could do that announcer guys' voice. . .being the mom of two boys - we get lots of "boy stuff" around here - and one of our favorite toys lately has been Hot Wheels Monster Trucks.  Imagine the face of my 4 YO when he seems them FOR REAL - at The Linc??!

That's right - Advance Auto Parts is bringing Monster Jam to The Linc on June 4th.

At Monster Jam, monster trucks face off in two different forms of competition -- side-by-side racing and freestyle:
  • Side-by-side racing – traditional bracket racing, where the first truck, with the least amount of penalties, crosses the finish line is declared the winner. 
  • Freestyle competition – allows drivers a limited amount of time on the open floor to show off their skills. In this category, the fans serve as the judges.

A really cool local connection here is that for the first time in Philly , the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam® will sponsor a unique art project in which a group of talented Philly art students from the Hussian School of Art will use an uncrushed, crush car as their canvas for painting a montage of Philadelphia area iconic scenes. 

You can check out all the details and action on the web, Facebook and Twitter. I hope you'll stop by and like them and follow them.  Their website even has a cool Kids Zone with wallpapers and coloring pages.

When you go to this Ticketmaster page to purchase seats for the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam at The Linc on June 4, you can use the code BLOGGER to save $10 on all $25 and $35 seats -- sweet! (Note: The code and discount also work if you order by phone at 800-745-3000 (the discount isn't good for front row or VIP seats, kids pricing, or $15 seats, and it's not available on the day of the show.)

BUT. . .just for leaving a comment here, you have the chance to win a family 4-pack of tickets to see the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam at The Linc. Giveaway will end Saturday, May 21st at 12 PM EST.  Make sure your email is included (profile or post).

The winner will be chosen via random.org and will have 48 hours to respond to my notification email. If not, another winner will be chose.  Open to US residents only (you MUST be available to come to Philly on June 4th)

note - i was given a family four-pack of tickets for myself in return for posting a giveaway on my blog.  I did not receive any compensation and as always, all opinions expressed here are my very own.


  1. Oh my boys would love to see this. I would send the hubs and a grandfather along to make it a true boys night- and to give myself a night off!

  2. My 5 to son would love this. Every year we say we are going and we never get there.

  3. Sam - if you are serious - make sure I can get in touch with you after the drawing!


  4. I would love to win this... but I'll be out of town for work that weekend -- boo :(
