MONSTER JAM7:30 p.m., Alltel Arena. $6.25-$21.75
In these gas-conscious, economically unsure times, one issue not getting enough coverage in the mainstream media is the burden borne by average Americans who might otherwise be buying huge trucks driving them over large obstacles and through the mud. Thank God, for those oppressed thousands, many undoubtedly Arkansan, for Monster Jam
. For a couple hours, the truck-less can live vicariously through behemoths with names like Black Stallion, Iron Warrior, Raminator, Ramunition and Prowler as they smash clunker cars and pop wheelies. The crushing continues on Saturday, same time, same place.
