In addition to the trucks, the show will feature motorcycle daredevil, Ed Beckley himself.  Beckley and a passenger will attempt to launch a specially built Harley-Davidson jump bike off a ramp over a long line of cars with both of them on the same motorcycle.  This is a World Record attempt!  The general public is invited to take part in the Tuff Truck Challenge, where drivers get a chance to attack the obstacle course and race against the clock for top honors For more information on the Tuff Truck Challenge, call Checkered Flag Productions at 940-683-4742.  
For an additional fee, attendees can ride in a real Monster Truck and check out the race course. 
Tickets can be purchased online, at the Box Office or by calling 410-548-4911. 

Funny Poop 
  • A man goes to his doctor complaining about migraines.  His doctor tells him, "I also suffer from the same ailment.  Every time I get one, I give my wife oral sex.  When she has an orgasm, she tightens her legs around my head, which gets rid of the pain.  You should try it sometime."  Two weeks later on a return visit, the patient tells his doctor, "Your suggestion worked and I'd also like to tell you that you have a very nice house." 

Etcetera 
  • Got poop? Let me know! I’m going to try to get this out every Wednesday so if you get it to me by Tuesday I’ll try to include it. Your input is appreciated.

Baltimore Ravens, let’s go 
And put that ball across the line 
So fly with talons spread wide 
Go in and strike with Ravens pride 
Fight! Fight! Fight! 
Ravens dark wings take flight 
Dive in and show them your might 
For Baltimore and Maryland 
You will fly on to victory
