Default Quad, how to get full value of the hand?

Villain is loose active...

$2 -$5 NL at Caesars LV.
MP raises to $25, Villain calls from MP+1, I call from BB with 88.

Flop 88T, I check, MP checks. Villain bets 60. I call, MP folds.

Turn 7. Board rainbow. I check, villain bets $100. (Villain has 2K behind, I have 550 behind) I raise to $200.

(IMO, the turn slows down over pair but improves T9,99. His hands don't look like QQ+ given pf call. My plan was to build the pot for river bet, I believe he will look me up very likely at the river. )

Is my line OK or there is a better line? Thanks

Looks like a post for MSNL...but while I'm at it, I think this depends on villain's hand reading ability and willingness to call when obviously behind. Your line stinks of an 8. I'd figure he would have to hit big on river to really pay you off.

Sometimes with really loose aggro players I will raise flop to build pot. Some give you lots of action because they believe you would never play an 8 that fast and they are determined that no one will play more aggressively then them...so they push back. Its lovely when that happens. Of course, I don't know if "loose active" villain meets this criteria.
