Recommended Posts

Crazy new thing in Foxboro; every time a truck did a backflip, fireworks were set off, as shown here:
 

Also, weirdest break ever:

Annual Foxboro review/rant post. 

 

Gates for the pit party opened at 2:30. Every single driver was on break until 3:00. Lines started getting shut down at 4:30 and the pit party ended at 5:30. Half of the time was lost. Almost made it on the big screen and got a Digger Disc but I wasn't in my seat when the announcer came up to my dad. Racing was cool, no real highlights I guess. The Two Wheel Skill competition has potential to be the highlight of the show if they don't change it for a while. Camden had a helluva move where he balanced the truck on the ramp like Tyler Menninga does. Adam had one of the biggest wow factors of the show. Freestyle was incredible. Nobody went easy. 110% from everyone. Buddy had a great run but honestly he shouldn't have held the lead as long as he did. Chuck and Adam both had better runs. Adam spent like half the night upside-down. They just left trucks everywhere and Ryan didn't have a clear backflip ramp but he almost went for it anyway. He most likely would have ended up on top of Mutant. Despite my complaints, it was still a 10/10 show and it keeps getting better every year.

New Truck for Monster Truck Throwdown. Looks like the former Temperature Rising that's teamed up with Anger Management?

Goin' to MetLife Stadium on Saturday, and the weather's looking very questionable. Some sources say we're gonna get rain, while others say a white sky. I just hope that the latter is the one that's correct, or even better.

As insane as that was, I hope he's ok. That's not a safe landing at all

Welp, the time's come again folks. My annual review/rant post on MetLife Stadium:

Party in the Pits: Was almost cancelled due to inclement weather before opening. Thankfully it held up for the entire time it was open, and for safety reasons, El Toro Loco was not hung on a crane this year. Overall good pit party despite threatening weather.

Racing: First time I got to witness a Chicago style course in MetLife. I was amazed by how nobody crashed, although El Toro vs Crusader in Round 1 was crazy. Transmission problems for Mad Scientist threatened to send Lee O'Donnell packing after his Round 1 race, but he returned for 2 Wheel. Tom Meents ended up winning the bracket, and ended his interview by saying "The 11 time champion is back." Hell yeah!

2 Wheel Tricks: Adam was the first one out, and almost repeated Foxboro, this time wrecking. BJ Johnson was just about to win it when Todd LeDuc in Mutant blew it for him. Several competitors tried out the bicycle, and LeDuc almost rammed into a dumpster when he did it.

Freestyle: For only a 14 truck field, everyone gave it hell. Matt Pagliarulo had huge air, as did Linsey Weenk, who ended up getting stuck in the dirt close to the backflip ramp. BJ Johnson had a great run, as did Bryce Kenny and Lee O'Donnell. The BIG highlights, however, came from Todd LeDuc and Tom Meents. LeDuc had massive air and an awesome save, while Meents also caught huge air, and pulled out a save that made me want to yell HAS THIS GUY GONE BERSERK!? (You'll see exactly why when you see what happened). With that epic run, Meents won Freestyle, but just missed the Overall win to Todd LeDuc and Mutant.

Final Rating - 9.25/10 -  Amazing show, but I would call it only equally as good as 2014. Next MetLife Stadium show is on April 21.

EDIT: Looks like I goofed -- Meents took the Overall win by 1 point https://www.monsterjam.com/en-US/results/east-rutherford-nj-june-17-2017-metlife-stadium
