Pungo Offroad Monsters on the Beach, presented by Eastern Truck & Accessories, brings thrills and chills to the Virginia Beach oceanfront as Monster Trucks battle for ultimate sand domination! This family-friendly event is loud, fast, and exciting. Make sure you see the BIGGEST Monster Truck show in the mid-Atlantic ON THE BEACH with a race and stunt course built right on the Beach at 6th Street and bleachers overlooking from the boardwalk. Sand dune ramps and junk cars combine to make the racecourse fast and fun for drivers and spectators alike.

Monster Trucks battle for individual race honors as well as the weekend-long point series with the overall winner snatching the George Carpenter Cup as “King Of The Beach”.  2-Time George Carpenter Cup winner Bryan Wright in Hooked will be back to reclaim his title but don’t count out Hometown Hero Steve Simms in Stone Crusher. This stacked Monster Truck lineup also includes Toxic, Buckshot, Quad Chaos, Dirt Crew, Wolf's Head and FTI Torque.

Races on the Beach track also include amateur Tough Truck competitions with cash prizes and bragging rights at stake for the competitors. Rounding out the track activities will be car-eating Megasaurus, 4-wheeler races and demos with jumps and exciting side-by-side action!
