    My dad and I went last year and we are going again this year.
    I don't really think there are too many bad seats in the house though. We sat in the center last year about 1/3 of the way up which was nice because we could see everything including the trucks coming through thunder alley but as I said there isn't a bad seat. If you go to the other end you can really see them when they turn (where a ton of action is) but if you go to the other end you can see them in the open area closer and coming through Thunder Alley.
    Oh and something we found out last year once we got there and were at the pit party was that if you want you can also buy tickets for Friday night qualifying. We didn't realize that and just had tickets for Saturday.
    Fun stuff, here are some shots from last year.

    can you buy just pit tickets. I really would love to see those things up close but the only thing I've seen was regular tickets for about 40 bucks or that double down thing(with the pit stuff) and it's 125. I don't think 250bucks for 2 people would be worth it but about a 100 wouldn't be a big deal.

    I don't know. My parents always treat me to this.

    It's well worth the money IMO. Seeing them up close is great fun and an incredible learning experience when you can see the technology up close.
    Plus when they drive into the stadium (where that Tom Meents pic was taken above w/ the 4ws working) you are like 5' away!

    Get the double down package. It's all 3 days I believe and the pit party. I would love to go to that show. We have all the Vegas finals DVD's cause my boys are Monster truck freaks LOL:D

    Saw monster jam at the Nasseu Moselium a few years ago. Made me wish I was closer to Vegas! I was at the Diesel Truckin Nationals at Raceway Park this weekend though... Nothing like watching tri-axle dumps drag racing down the 1/4 mile! The faster ones were in the low 18's.... There was one tandem tractor that ran a 14.xx too!
