Tampa, Florida -- Sixteen massive monster trucks will roar into Raymond James Stadium on Saturday night, and one driver will attempt the first-ever backflip in Tampa Bay.

Two Monster Jam shows will fill Ray Jay -- the first on Saturday, January 19th and the second on Saturday, February 2nd. Both shows start at 7 p.m.

At the January 19th show, driver Tom Meents will speed his truck Maximum Destruction up a specially-made ramp and attempt to flip backward and land upright on his giant 66-inch tires.

Meents will also roll out a special monster vehicle called MAX-D that celebrates 10 years of Maximum Destruction's competition at Monster Jam events.

A father-vs.-son matchup is also on the schedule. Monster Jam's most famous truck, Grave Digger, will have driver Dennis Anderson at the wheel as it takes on Son Uva Digger, driven by Dennis' son Ryan Anderson.

Fans with a Monster Jam show ticket can also pick up tickets to a pre-race Pit Party at local Ford dealerships. That party runs from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. before the show and gives fans the chance to get close to the trucks and meet the drivers.

At that Pit Party, fans will also be able to climb aboard and ride in a specially-built version of Grave Digger.

Friday afternoon, Monster Jam trucks will be at locations all over Tampa Bay for photo ops and a chance to meet the drivers. Click here for a list of times and locations.

Monster Jam event tickets start at $15, and cost $5 more on the day of the show. Click here to order tickets online.
