Extreme vehicle fans, find your earplugs! The monster trucks will be vrooooming back into Quicken Loans Arena (One Center Ct.) this weekend. With trucks sporting names like “Maximum Destruction,” “Shock Therapy” and “Brutus,” you know these guys mean business. The 12-foot-by-12-foot, five-ton vehicles and their five-and-a-half-foot tires will fly across the arena floor — and off it, up to 35 feet in the air — in short bursts of speed. As a “palate cleanser,” BMX biker riders will be doing their thing. Showtimes are 2 and 7:30 p.m. today and 2 p.m. tomorrow. Tickets are $10-$50. Before today’s show, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., ticket-holders can get a close-up look at the trucks and meet the drivers at the Party in the Pits, for only an extra $5. Call the Q box office, 888.894.9424 or go to theqarena.com. — Anastasia Pantsios
