  1. This......IS........a review of an event that I went to last night that I'm pretty sure nobody will care about but I like to do cuz I only go to MJ twice a year! Soooo, Newark was an interesting one this year in just about every competition, so here's my review of the 7PM show last night: Racing - Right off the bat we got somethin from this. Preston couldn't get off the line at first when he raced Krysten, and they had to restart the race. Krysten ended up winning it. Other than that, just about every other race was pretty tight, with a lot of close finishes. Finals went down to Mark and Colton, in which Mark would get the crazy bull the Racing win. ATV Racing - Well, both of the first two heats saw an easy winner, them being Sipes and Colton. Krysten cut a corner in her heat, and I think she got penalized for it. In the final heat, however, that's when things got real. When the black flags began, Krysten and Preston got into a tussle on the final turn, and both were black-flagged. Final race was between the winners of the first two heats, in which Colton would come out on top. Two Wheel Skills - Just about everyone was able to pull off somethin here. Krysten went first and over-rotated a sky wheelie, landing hard on the rear end and going right wheels up. Once again this competition would be very close between Colton and Sipes, but this time around it would be Sipes who took the win.....Colton should've won tbh Donuts - Oooooh boy, this one. I found myself covering my eyes with my arm with each competitior that did their donut in front of me after Krysten caused a tiny piece of dirt to hit my right leg (I was in the front row). SIpes was unfortunately out due to mechanical problems following his TWS run. Colton wasn't able to get a cyclone in, which didn't do him any good in terms of scoring. After a lackluster first half, however, Krysten would make the comeback she needed, as she would be the winner. Speedster Racing - This was my dad's favorite, mainly because of one thing that happened. On top of each race being very tight, there was one in which a crash landing almost occurred. Mark almost landed his speedster right on top of Colton's in an attempt to make a comeback. Ultimately, he clipped it, and got karma for it by rolling in the third turn. Since that was the final round, Colton would take his second win of the night in this competition. Freestyle - As to be expected, this was easily the most interesting competition of the night. Hicks got things started with an okay run, but then came Sipes, who pulled off the only backflip of the night, as well as some huge air. Mark ended his run with a very interesting move; going reverse between the miniflip ramp and the ramp next to it, resulting in him getting massive air. Brittany got some attention from the crowd after she knocked the hood off her truck, leaving the bottom half of the mouth of Zombie sitting by itself. Krysten had a pretty good save in her run, and almost crashed into Blue Thunder, but she prevented that with a nice stoppie. Lastly, Colton would have a decent run, and knocked his hood off as well. Ultimately, the shark would take another bite out of the competition, as Sipes would take his second and last win of the night. Overall Event Champion - Colton - 41 points Final Rating - 8.863 - Definitely one of the better MJ shows I've attended, and easily the best Newark show I've attended. Now, I wait for MetLife, which will be on........idk
  2. Honestly, I approve of this new rule......mostly. On one hand, I'm very thankful it eliminates the possibility of a one-hit wonder winning Freestyle, as that near-occurrence with the run you mentioned sparked a lot of controversy, and FELD needed to ensure that doesn't happen again. On the other hand, I think 30 seconds might be a little much. I heard they made the rule 15 seconds in Arenas, which I feel is a perfect amount of time. In a stadium case, someone could have a good run going....and crash at around 25 seconds and get a 0 as a result. There also comes one major question; does a driver get no points for Freestyle if they get a 0 in their run? If so, then that's where I draw the line, because that's definitely going too far.
  3. Matt Pagliarulo and Jim Koehler took their first Stadium Overall Wins last night I am dead serious

  7. 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
  8. MetLife Stadium - 2015-2019 Prudential Center - 2018-2019 (Saturday night for both years) 7 Monster Jam events
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. Oof. I always thought they had permission to use it once I found it on YouTube. Really unfortunate to see it go like that.
