EAST RUTHERFORD - More than a dozen 1,500-horsepower monster trucks will take to the dirt for Monster Jam at MetLife Stadium on Saturday night.

Many of the trucks made appearances around the state this week. News 12 New Jersey anchor Rick Holmes got behind the wheel of Maximum Destruction on Thursday, but wasn't allowed to crush any cars.

This weekend, 11-time champion Tom Meents, the owner of the Max-D truck, will attempt a double backflip.
