I think a legit racing points series will be harder to do now than ever because this generation has less interest in racing than previous ones. Their nothing more than casual fans who are looking to take their kids out to do something. They really don't follow racing and other stuff like my generation did because there are a ton more entertainment options out there these days. I completely agree about Monster Jam not being a legitimate motorsport anymore, just a spectacle/stunt show. Everything from the announcers to the drivers seems very over scripted and I hate hearing them called athletes like driver is some type of insult or low brow thing to call them. Probably the best example of things being over scripted is Meents doing any type of advertising or speaking on these specials every year. Compare that to the early 2000's and you'll see the difference. Early 2000's he was being himself, now he is being told what to say and how to articulate it. Everything just looks very fake and forced. I really like the Toughest Monster Truck Tour and believe that is the direction things should be going but they like all the other small promoters will hit the ceiling and it's not a glass one. Gone are the days of multiple promoters running in the same venue (Astrodome, Hoosier/RCA Dome etc). Now there are exclusive contracts and venues that won't let Monster Trucks run in them due to Monster Jam letting trucks run broken and messing up flooring and hitting walls. These MJ guys driving today would be in big trouble driving the way they do if it was the 90's where other vehicles were on the track. Now they just floor it at everything in racing and hope for the best. I've never seen so many trucks crash after the finish line as I have in the last several years. The really sad part is they have much wider ramps to hit and better suspension and still can't manage to keep the truck on all fours. As far as Monster Jam being to blame for the current destroy all product these days I would put them at about 90% responsible. They are the ones who started that path when they started buying trucks that they sent out to crash. Many smaller and independent promoters couldn't compete with that which let them grow to be the giant they are today. Being that they have little to no competition they dictate which direction the industry goes because everyone is watching them. Unfortunately they are the measuring stick. Kyle Doyle was saying the number one thing he got asked doing SST is "why don't the monster trucks do freestyle?" It's all people want and expect at shows now. I would like to see it become more legit but I think we need a smarter audience more dedicated to racing before that will happen. There are two types of Monster Truck fans out there. The ones that watch Monster Jam on TV with their kids and take them to the shows thinking every show is Monster Jam and there are the ones who follow the history, go to multiple promotions knowing there isn't only 1 and follow everything MT related online. Unfortunately us intelligent/diehard fans are in the extreme minority right now.
