American Monster Truck legend Dan Patrick is flying into the UK to star in this year’s UK Monster Truck nationals event at Santa Pod Raceway on Sunday, August 9.

Special guest Dan will drive the Blaster Monster Truck which was custom built in Ohio by his company Patrick Enterprises for Welsh racer Ian Jones and imported into the UK.

This is a massive scoop for both the show and all Monster Truck fans in the UK

Event organiser Neil English said: “This is a massive scoop for both the show and all Monster Truck fans in the UK as Dan Patrick truly is one of the world’s biggest names in monster trucking.

“Dan pioneered the famous Samson Monster Truck team that have pushed forward the boundaries of monster truck design worldwide.

“Visitors are set for a very special treat with Dan behind the wheel.”

Dan will be taking to the wheel for head-to-head competition as well as putting Blaster through its paces in the popular freestyle section, crushing cars and caravans, and even flying over a bus to entertain the crowds.

Early arrivals can meet Dan Patrick, along with all of the other stars of the show and their monster trucks in the pre-show pit party walkabout, although extra fees apply for this.

Blaster will be joined by Swamp Thing, Big Pete, Grim Reaper, Podzilla, Slingshot and the 10-seater Monster Ride Truck Red Dragon.
