Nothing screams America' quite like a monster-truck rally. For some, this is a travesty, but for those who thrill to the smell of hot motor oil, the sound of an oversized engine and the unique tactile sensations that only mud can provide, Monster Jam is coming to Orange County to answer your third-grade self's prayers. Featuring cars with tires roughly the size of the Randy's Donuts sign, the Monster Jam trucks leap over other cars, zoom up mud hills and generally make a big mess. Slinging mud, making a big noise and leaving a huge mess behind? It's an American tradition!
