  1. Monster Jam has announced that it'll be extending it's contract with BKT until 2026 This may or may not be good news depending on your stance i can already hear the ig kids raging
  2. MetLife Stadium - 2015-2019 Prudential Center - 2018-2019 (Saturday night for both years) 7 Monster Jam events
  3. Glendale is going to have two trucks from Team Fire competing; Sipes in Megalodon Fire, Meents in Max-D Fire. Meanwhile, Dalmatian ice will be the only Ice truck competing makes sense
  4. Another incident happened in ATVs this past weekend in Rosemont, this one involving Tony Ochs and Tanner Root. Fortunately, both drivers are fine, but neither of them could compete on the last show of the weekend. Joe Urie filled in for Tony, and Tyler Senger filled in for Tanner.
  5. Zane has confirmed that he was offered spots in the arena tour, but he denied it so they could run their own first quarter schedule. He's not leaving, in fact he even added that his team hasn't been as excited as they are for first quarter in years.
  6. A list of highlights from the Season Kickoff show (biggest announcements are bolded) A new stunt truck will debut at World Finals XXI in an encore Two trucks will be selected at some point after World Finals XXI to be a part of "Team Zombie", which will include special paint schemes There will be one brand new truck next year; it will be announced at a later date (Bye bye Crusader?) Performances will be ranked by Power Rankings, a system that will use statistics to measure the leaderboards and will be updated every Wednesday starting in early January. Preseason rankings will also come before the tours begin All three Triple Threat tours will include a miniflip ramp at each event Among competitors in Triple Threat East will be Aaron Basl in Monster Mutt, who competed in stadiums this year Among competitors in Triple Threat West will be Brandon Vinson, Tristan England, Bari Musawwir, and a new driver for Megalodon to be announced Among competitors in Triple Threat Central will be Justin Sipes, Colton Eichelberger, Mark List, Matt Cody, and our boy Preston Perez in the Rottweiler! The Arena Championship Series will include Freestyle Motocross. Among competitors in the Arena Championship Series will be the return of the Hall Bros and the MJ debut of GET ER DONE II!!! The stadium tours will each have their own separate tracks! Drivers on the stadium tours will be allowed to include donuts in their Two Wheel Skill performances. Coty Saucier will be back in stadiums in 2020, and will compete on Stadium Tour Yellow. In addition to all seven Series Champions earning a bid into World Finals XXI, an eighth bid will be awarded to one of the 10 international drivers. All international events after World Finals XX will count towards it. Monster Jam World Finals XXI will be on May 2 and 3, 2020. This will, for the first time ever, put the event on a Sunday.
  7. Mike Thompson, brother of Steven Thompson, driver of several trucks including Wrecking Crew, Taurus, and Lumberjack, and a frequent crew member for the Vaters during the Spring and Summer this year, has passed away Got to meet him when MJ came to Metlife this year. A very nice guy and a great driver. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
  8. The final 8 qualifiers for the All-Star Challenge have been announced. Won't spoil anything but let's just say Meents and Buetow made some pretty darn good choices.
  9. Oof. I always thought they had permission to use it once I found it on YouTube. Really unfortunate to see it go like that.
  10. RIP Megalodon's Original Theme January 7, 2017 - July 12, 2019 The truck, for unknown reasons, now has a new theme as of the first event of the weekend in Los Angeles. The theme itself has yet to be identified as of the time of this post, but whether or not this is a permanent change is also unknown.
  11. Okay so I'm home from MetLife which means it's time for my super duper highly anticipated biannual event review that nobody cares about but i like to do cuz it's tradition with every time i go Pit Party - I actually arrived a little bit early this year; by the time I got close to the gate for security there was about 5 minutes to spare before the gates to the Pit Party opened. In terms of the Pit Party itself, I was impressed with how many drivers I met this year; met all except for Tyler, Ryan, Meents, and the Cretens (Dawn's line was surprisingly long, as was Nick's). Some I got to within minutes of getting on line (namely Matt Cody, Mike Thompson, and surprisingly Ryan Disharoon), while others I found myself waiting quite a lil while, especially Cynthia. I asked Camden how long it took to repair his truck following his WF crash, and, to my surprise, it didn't take long at all (Among the parts on the front end tonight included the same axle that was involved in the crash. Wow). Overall, good Pit Party. One of these years I'll meet 'em all, but dat didn't happen this year Racing - Lots of interesting races this year, especially in Rounds 1 and 2. Meents nearly blew an engine in Round 1, and there were quite a few spinouts in that round, as well. And as if last year's final round wasn't surprising or interesting enough, this year's tops it by a longshot; Tyler vs. Hartsock. Hartsock took out both Matts and Anderson, who got a penalty in the Semis, to make it this far. He would come very close, but DIGGER DIGGER DIGGER would take the win. Two Wheel Skills - Good to see this at MetLife again after its absence last year. Mike Thompson broke a wheel off of Taurus, and Jimmy had a nice save-to-crash combo. Dawn stuck her truck on its rear wheels for a few moments and brought it back down, which landed her 5th place in the end. Biggest highlight was Ryan's sidewall save similar to St. Louis Show 2, which got him the win. Menninga almost pulled off the same thing but wrecked, and Meents was unfortunately out as his engine was getting replaced at the time. Here's to hoping it's gonna happen again next year. Intermission - Something interesting actually happened this time. The crowd got a wave going, and Mitchell Rains (one of the announcers) noticed; he then took it up a notch by telling the crowd to make it slow-mo, really fast, and to switch directions at various points. Easily one of the best waves ever done at a MJ event. I myself got dippin dots again, and......yep Freestyle - Now this got real good almost right off the bat. Cynthia would rock the house early on with some of the best momentum of the night, and throwing a backflip right in front of me (my seat was right next to the backflip ramp, almost front row). Coty, Disharoon, Camden, and Anderson would also go all out, and truck issues unfortunately plagued Matt Pag, Jimmy, and Meents' runs. One beef that I had was that Matt Cody went out waaaaay too late (7th or 8th, i dont remember), whereas Cynthia and Coty went out too early. Besides that, good Freestyle. Coty should've won, but the win went to blues clues as fans scored Cynthia so high that it'd be very difficult to top it. Final Rating - 8.358 - A reference to the scoring system. But in all seriousness, this was a great show. Not as good as 2017, but certainly better than last year. Also I may be going to the All-Star Challenge in October sooo.......yep
  12. Somethin' wild is coming for Wild Flower.......and a familiar, just as wild person is helpin' out....
