The went pretty over board with racing. And the obstacles were bigger then Monster Jam's. Literally almost all the mega trucks broke, crashed, or just plane didn't start. Half of the field didn't make it out of racing due to damage.

Yeah I dunno what they changed this year versus last but the track needs to be SEVERELY toned down. Last night was the indie equivalent of WF11. And Aaron Cain won racing but that was the only race he won all night, and Bigfoot one by virtue of doing exciting stuff and filling the clock, only one that did

It was similar to last year, but racing wasn't as complex and their was more space between jumps. This year, they literally mirrored WF15-17 when it came to jumps. Literally all the trucks kept crashing into other obstacles.

I suspect they were trying to mirror Monster Jam a bit to bring the action up, but all it did was destroy the trucks.

still MT related but Doug Spanier, driver of Master of Disaster in the 80s and 90s, passed away yesterday morning, August 19th 2017

Man that's sad. I feel like the monster truck community has lost more guys in the last three years than before, and this one seriously hurts to read.

Press release from Monster Events, one of the promotions from down under; seems they are expanding out big time, and I'm interested to see how it goes.

Bringing up something nobody probably remembers but remember that leaked BKT Tires thing a while back? Where they would have Monster Jam trucks, tractors, mud trucks, etc. in stadiums? BKT has released two videos on YouTube hinting to this. We might have this play out as well, wondering if Monster Jam will have specific drivers/trucks for that or will send the non-FELD trucks out there. Also if FS1 will hop on and broadcast.
