Every year Daytona Beach become the site for the monster truck invasion. 2020 should have been a little different with the Covid - 19 pandemic. The Covid - 19 didn't make a difference as trucks could be seen on display at the speedway and through the streets of Daytona Beach. Doing burnouts, blasting their loud music while flooring their gas peddle, blowing out disgusting diesel mist into the air while creating a new sense of themselves.
This event caused traffic back ups on Atlantic Avenue in Daytona Beach while trucks and other vehicles cruised the A-1-A strip. Here's a look at how the weekend's total number of traffic citations and arrests during this year’s event compares with previous years, according to statistics provided by the Daytona Beach Police Department:
