MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The popular Advanced Auto Parts Monster Jam event visits the Metrodome for the last time on Saturday.

The action starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are still available at Ticketmaster outlets. Prices start at $20 dollars for adults and $10 bucks for kids ages 2-12.

This morning, WCCO’s Natalie Nyhus took on one of the drivers in this remote control race and won. But then came the rematch and the results were decidedly different. Click above to see that video.

Among the monster truck facts Nyhus collected:

— Trucks are about 12 feet tall, 12 feet wide, and 20 feet long
— They weigh 10,000 pounds
— They reach top speeds of 70 miles per hour
— They have 22-gallon tanks that get about 7 gallons per mile
