EVANSVILLE — A fan-filled Ford Center welcomed three shows last weekend featuring a famous purple-and-green 1950’s Chevy panel van with 1,500 horsepower. Monster Jam transformed the downtown Evansville arena into a dirt track for Grave Digger and company to spin their wheels and ramp their 12,000-pound trucks through the air.

Grave Digger driver Brandon Vinson spoke with The Herald before eager fans had a chance to enjoy the festivities.
