BANGOR – A few weeks ago it was bull riding, this week monster trucks will be crushing cars, flipping and twisting at the Cross Insurance Center.
The Traxxas Monster Truck Tour will be making its sixth straight trip to Bangor. Lumberjack monster truck driver and Mainer Kurt Phillips will be making his second appearance in Bangor after making his monster truck debut at the Cross Insurance Center last year.
Phillips will be driving the Lumberjack, one of two Maine inspired monster trucks. Phillips and the rest of the drivers spend most of the tour on the road in different states. He says this stop is extra special.
“These are our hometown fans we travel all over the United States over the summer so when we’re home these fans are special to us so we let it all hang out for our Bangor fans…our Maine fans,” Phillips said.
