The Show Me Center is preparing today to get its redneck groove on.
Tonight one of the venue's biggest events returns when the monsters roll into town for the Monster Truck Winternationals.
Last year each night packed in a crowd of mor than 4,000 people cheering on their favorite make of monster and competing in truck and ATV racing competitions. This year's numbers are expected to be similar.
Here are the monster machines that will thunder across the Show Me Center floor.
This 2006 Dodge is billed by owner Richie Blackburne as one of the most state-of-the-art monsters today.
Predator and Prowler
Two monsters owned by the same guy -- one with the hood in the shape of a cat head, complete with eyes and fangs.
In 2005 this Ford was driven by a rookie driver, Brandon Legarde, from New Orleans.
This monster is decked out in tropical blues and greens with a cartoon monkey adorning its side.
