For Tim Young, driving from Celina to Lima to watch the monster trucks has been an annual tradition for the past eight years.
Young and his family have their favorite drivers and monster trucks.
The event is so popular, motels up and down I-75 have been booked for months according to Christine Pleva, executive director with the Lima Allen County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
She estimates that the economic impact of the event is about 6 million dollars.
Not only do the motels benefit, but so do area restaurants and retailers as the estimated 40 thousand people spend their money outside the fairgrounds.
And with so many people cramming into the Allen County Fairgrounds, organizers of the event are happy to bring their show back to Lima.
