Bristol Dragway officials today announced a change to the 2010 schedule of events in Thunder Valley.

The Thompson Metal Monster Truck Madness, originally scheduled for Saturday, July 24, now takes place Thursday, July 29 at Bristol Motor Speedway.

This fan-favorite event features hard-hitting monster trucks, high-flying motocross freestyle sessions and a fireworks show to cap off the evening.

New to this year's event is a junk car burn down. A jet car, chained to an old junker, will turn on the afterburners and torch the car until it melts to the ground.

The revised date now falls the night before the qualifying and elimination rounds begin for the NHRA Jr. Drag Racing League Eastern Conference Finals.
