For anyone wondering why Tom was shut off and not allowed to refire, here's why.

I've only ever worked arena shows, but in every meeting I've been in its made clear that as soon as chunks of dirt go into the crowd, you're done.

That could be true in arenas but i can remember West lebanon 2016 Adam through tons of mud into the crowd and wasnt shut off,

That was watery, muddy since it rained like hell last year. It's not even close to muddy in Nashville, and the trucks can sling huge chunks of dirt into the stands.

Attendance honestly hasn't improved much since last year from what I saw (hell I'm positive I saw the seats I got last year were unoccupied). Dunno if it will improve or if that's enough to comp the costs of the show, but a part of me feels that's not a good sign for future shows.

Went to a Throwdown show last night. Rain threatened the show. Stands were still pretty full, not close to last year but still. Just a reminder that tickets for throwdown shows are $25 each seat :)

On that Tom Meents clip, a giant clump of dirt flew into the stands and hit a young child on the head. You can actually see it happen on the left side of the screen and you can see the father and child screaming and panicking. I heard it was described almost as a rock hard substance, and if that's true, that is very dangerous. Could have been another Natural High incident but I am glad nothing came of it.

I dont get why everyone hates mufflers, personally i love them. They sound good, and theyre nice and quiet which is nice when youre the one driving, especially going in and out of the trailer

yeah, right after he flipped onto 4 wheels, there's a dude in gray who is holding his crying and/or screaming son. pretty intense stuff tbh it could have been a lot worse if it was a rock that got kicked up

Yeah kicked up mud is hard af. Actually hurts sometimes. I've been to a few junk car races and the mud they kicked up would go into the stands a few times and it feels like plastic BB pellets hitting you.

Looking at the results for Nashville, I can't help but applaud BJ Johnson; he took out BOTH Andersons in Racing, and finished 3rd Overall. One helluva weekend for the guy.

It was more occupied than last year to me. Upper decks of one side were emtpy but 1 side was completely full. 

 

I really think they should print a "at your own risk" on a ticket

Well that makes travel a hell of a lot easier when it comes to taking days off for the trip. That's why I never enjoyed the 3 day concept.
