GEORGETOWN, DE – The madness draws closer.

Advance sale tickets are now available online at a discounted rate. Advance tickets can be purchased at:

Anticipation has built in southern Delaware for the last two years for the return of the MTRL. After COVID-19 forced a cancellation of the show in 2020 and scheduling conflicts left them off in 2021, the MTRL returns in 2022.

Six full-size Monster Trucks will be in action, including world record long-jump holder Bad Habit. High-flying freestyle motocross competitors join the MTRL on both shows.

A pre-event pit party and meet & greet comes included with all ticket purchases. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the drivers and take photos with their favorite competitors.

Two complete shows are planned: one each for Friday and Saturday.

Gates open at 5:30 p.m. each night with the pit party taking place from 6-7 p.m. Showtime follows shortly after at 7:30 p.m.

Advance Adult tickets cost just $20 and $10 for Kids (ages 3-12).

Tickets at the gate cost $25 for Adults and $15 for Kids (ages 3-12).
