BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — It's going to be a monster weekend in Gonzales, and today people at Robinson Brothers got the chance for a sneak preview.
The monster truck named “The General” was outside the dealership located on Airline Highway all day today. That’s because the big boy will be part of the Monster Truck Tour happening this weekend at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center in Gonzales.
If you missed a close up look at the truck, you’ll have another chance tomorrow. The General will be stationed out front until 5:00 p.m.
Also, one lucky NBC33 viewer will get a very close look on Saturday. That’s because we held a surprise giveaway for two VIP tickets to the event.
Jesse Holmes was the third caller into the NBC33 News room. The Denham Springs-native will get the chance to go into the pit and meet the drivers, as well as see all the trucks up close. Jesse told us he’s a huge fan of Monster Trucks, so he’s super excited that he won the prize.
Our sister station WGMB FOX44 is also doing a ticket giveaway on their Facebook page. Three people will win four tickets to the event this weekend. Click here  to register for your chance to win.
