The lobster “Monster Truck” Crushstation, from Jefferson, Maine, was featured at the Monster Truck show at the Northern Maine Fairgrounds on May 27.  It rolled onto its side in its opening competition (inset photo), prompting the announcer to call it a “lobster roll” (ha, ha, that’s supposed to be funny).  Neither the truck nor driver were damaged and it went on to win the overall event in the freestyle competition.  The show was a sell-out event and the grandstand held a record capacity crowd for the single, one-night show.   photos/David Deschesne
