In 1990 the monsters of the TNT Monster Truck Series came to do battle at the Myrtle Beach Speedway in Myrtle Beach SC. As was the case for many race tracks that the monsters raced at, the biggest concern was having little room on each side of truck as the drivers wrestled their machines down the alley in an attempt to avoid an altercation with the barriers.
One such truck unfortunately had a meeting with more than just the barriers. At the end of his run, Steve Cain in “King Kong III” suffered breakage to a sway bar which shot him towards the left hand barrier of the track. Hopping over the barrier on two wheels, the truck smashed through and toppled the track's 76 sign, settled down on all fours for a few moments before veering to the left once more. At the climax of this already wild ride, Steve Cain and “King Kong III” rolled over, landing on top of and destroying two brand new county patrol cars, with the truck momentarily bursting into flames. Within moments of the truck coming to a stop, Steve Cain removed himself from the truck, and walked away from one of the most iconic spectacles in monster truck crashes.
This is the site of that spectacular wreck. The RoR re-creation of Myrtle Beach Speedway, 1990.

Special thanks to John Brown (DiggerFan) for teaching me a method to add "collision boxes" to the armco barriers. Thank you, sir!
