  1. Official Monster Truck 2K18 Thread

    I feel like you guys are really stretching for whatever this old truck might be.
  2. Official Monster Truck 2K18 Thread

    Exactly, it was bound to happen. To put things into perspective, I'd guess Dennis has been driving since the majority of the users on this site were born. He's competed in Monster Trucks since 1986, that's 31 years of hard hits, and as you get older the hits only get harder.

    So we're all in agreement MonsterJam.TV will probably be a service like the WWENetwork where they have all their past events available to watch, right? Maybe we'll get some live events too if we're lucky.
  4. Official Monster Truck 2K18 Thread

    Youtube link for anyone who needs it. News from the stream (Let me know if I forgot anything) Partnering with Netflix a truck from the past will make it's return for 3 events. As we know, the World Finals is back to 2 days, March 23 and 24. A new truck from the guys from the show "Diesel Brothers" that is diesel powered will debut in 2018, sounds like it is called the Brodozer. Brianna Mahon will be driving a truck called "Whiplash" An early access pass for pit parties on Saturday's are now available for Stadium shows All tour champions get an automatic bid in the World Finals Racing includes all 14 trucks in stadiums, fastest two go to the second round automatically, and new event called the "Two Wheel Challenge" Max of 42 points for stadium shows, winners get 14 points for each event, 13 for 2nd 12 for 3rd etc. Judges Zone will be used everywhere Arena course layout looks the same. Cars are included in the Chicago style course Marc McDonald is driving Cleatus Dennis Anderson is officially retired from competition Colt Stephens is driving the Brodozer A service/website called Monsterjam.TV was teased with footage from old and newer events, If I had to guess this is a service similar to the WWENetwork with most, if not all old monster jam shows and what not available

    Will this years hosts be as stiff and rehearsed as last years hosts? Probably. Will they not know a lick about monster trucks? Probably. Will it be awkward with technical difficulties? Probably. Will it be a train wreck? I hope so, I love a good train wreck.

    I can see why Lee O'Donnell won. It is the first time ever a perfect front flip was landed. It may be one of the only times we see it. As long as stadiums are setup for Jersey, Chicago and So Cal(If they do that style anymore) we won't be seeing front flips as often as wee see back flips. The only place, based on the way they setup the tracks that the front flip is possible will probably be in Las Vegas, even then, the track gets at least slight changes year after year, so the way they set it up in the future could negate any front flip attempt. It just happened that this year, it was set up perfectly for it to happen. And let's be real, in Monster Jam it's almost always been about having the biggest "Wow factor" when it comes to freestyle. When you put judging into all the fans hands most of them don't really care about momentum, and all the judging criteria. Most people are going to judge by the one crazy move they saw, not the whole run.

    Yeah, it will be open in time for the 2020 NFL season, which would start in September 2020, so the first World Finals would be 2021. Atlanta's new stadium broke ground in May of 2014, and it will open in August of this year, so that would be 3 years from ground breaking to opening. They have yet to break ground in Las Vegas, and assuming it takes the same amount of time, it own;t be open in time for the 2020 World Finals.

    Off the top of my head Sam Boyd Stadium hosts 5 events every year, 3 of them being the World Finals, Supercross finals and the Monster Energy Cup, all these from Feld. I could easily see once the new stadium is built them wanting to move at least the Supercross finals in the new stadium. The other two are the USA Rugby Sevens and the Las Vegas Bowl. I'd be willing to bet that the Las Vegas Bowl will move to the new stadium. Not sure what Rugby Sevens would do, as I'm not too familiar with it. So at some point, if you're from UNLV and it's only the WF, and Rugby there, is it even worth keeping the building and maintainung it? The thing is, the new stadium won't be done until the 2021 World Finals. In those 4 years a lot of things regarding that situation could and will change.

    Well, if UNLV moves into Raider stadium, I'd imagine the university would want to get Dam Boyd Stadium off their books since they'd have no use for it and would look to sell the land. If that's the case Feld could look at buying the land if they want to keep the Supercross finals and MJ World Finals there. However, I'm not sure if Feld would want to undertake the task of maintaining a stadium just so they could have two events there. There's also the fact that the land may be valuable to developers, and if the land is considered valuable that could drive the price up and maybe make it not worth buying it. If they don't I could easily see the World Finals vecoming something like WrestleMania, or the Super Bowl where they host it in different cities each year.

    Great Clips Mohawk Warrior, VP Racing Fuels Mad Scientist, FS1 Cleatus, Gas Monkey Garage, Lucas Oil Crusader, Metal Mulisha, and Hot Wheels are all either corporate sponsorship, or brands that have agreed to license their brand for use on a Monster Jam truck. As long as these trucks have a corporate sponsor they will have at least one main driver that the brands can use for promotional purposes. Look at the past for example, when Ford sponsored Blue Thunder, it had one main driver for the full season, like Tony Farrell, Norm Miller, Lyle Hanrooster and eventually Linsey Weenk, they all drove it for a full season including the World Finals instead of having someone like a Digger driver just fill the seat at a World Finals Corporate sponsorship is also why Bryce Kenny made it in the WF this year. Most, if not all of the companies with a truck probably have it in their contracts that they go to the World Finals not matter what.

    Quality over quantity like I said earlier. Doing multiple backflips should be treated the same way as if someone kept doing slap wheelies or donuts over and over for example. It would be one thing if he based a good run around it, but if the 4 backflips are the only notable thing you don't deserve the win.
  13. World Finals XVIII Discussion

    Lee O'Donnel just did a front flip.
  14. World Finals XVIII Discussion

    This brings up an interesting thought I had. So I know it's not shown live on tv because first, it's two nights worth of TV Fox Sports would need to give up, and with ads the shows wouldn't end until like 1 AM or even later. But, why not air it on Fox Sports Go live?

    I mean, she bought the tickets and probably wants the kids to be in the video, what do you expect?
