GRAND FORKS — The Toughest Monster Truck Tour will come to Grand Forks in April.

The Alerus Center made the announcement Monday morning, listing the date for the event as April 22. Tickets go on sale Friday.

“As always, our entire crew really enjoys bringing our event to Grand Forks and we are especially excited this year because we have some new trucks and drivers in our line-up,” Kelly Hess Goldman, the event promoter, said in a release sent to the media. “This year’s event will include a brand-new monster truck, never seen before in Grand Forks-Dozer-which is a bulldozer-themed monster truck. Plus, the truck Rat Attack will be joining the tour, not just in Grand Forks but in several other cities. This makes some of the more seasoned drivers a bit nervous because although driver Jacob Ladwig in Rat Attack only competed in two events last year, he won the racing competition in both of those events and is considered a very strong contender.”

According to the release sent to the media, the lineup will also include the dump truck-themed Dirt Crew, Tailgator, Buckshot, and Holeshot, in addition to the daredevil Freestyle Motocross team.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
