All Star Monster Truck Tour will make its heart-pounding debut at the Warren County Fair grandstand on Thursday, July 25, sponsored by Vaughan's RV. Locals can get close to the action during a meet-and-greet that includes truck rides, or try racing their own vehicles during the Tough Truck Challenge.
