Big wheels rolled into Las Vegas as it played host to this year's Monster Jam World finals.

“It is definitely a family-orientated event and we are happy to come and support this,” said Monster Jam fan, James Alejandro.

“We've been coming since 2005,” said another fan, Evan Alejandro.

The annual monster truck show drew in thousands of aficionados, including Filipino-Americans from Southern Nevada and California.

“I've been a fan of Monster Jam for about 20 years. My son is going on his 3rd year. I’m from Los Angeles. Every year, if I get the chance, I go,” said Peter Ramos.

The Monster Jam organizer was thrilled to announce that they will be bringing the show to the Philippines from August 30 to September 1 this year.

“We should feel very proud because Manila will be the very first city na mapapanood ang Monster Jam in Asia. Naisip namin na sobrang papatok ito kasi sobrang we are family oriented. Ang mga Pinoy talagang mahal na mahal ang pamilya nila and the show is talagang for families,” said Nean Rigor, head of Integrated Marketing Communications Hoopla, Inc.

“Manila is a fascinating place with a great entertainment, culture and partners like Hoopla Entertainment brings such great value to bring in such awesome property to the Filipino people obviously Feld Entertainment goal we do Disney’s On Ice, we do very big production for the Filipino already. We are ready to bring our next biggest hit to the Philippines,” said Blake Tatroe.

Eight vehicles and their drivers will be going to Manila, a chance for Pinoys to experience first hand the excitement that only monster trucks can deliver.--By Bev Llorente, ABS-CBN North America News Bureau
