That Was Glorious: The First Front Flip Landed In A Monster Truck

March 27, 2017


This is a video of driver Lee O'Donnell landing a front flip in the Mad Scientist monster truck during the recent Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Championship in Las Vegas. The flip helped secure Lee a first place victory in the competition. Man, I wish I went to more monster truck rallies. I've only ever been to one, and I got so drunk I picked a fight with the guy sitting in front of me. "You were six." I know, growing up in Alabama you were allowed to drink when you were four as long as you were at a monster truck rally or WWF wrestling match.

Keep going for a short video of the flip, as well as a video of the whole performance that has a better view of the flip at 2:12. Also, I like the half backflip at the very end.

Thanks to Gregory, who's asked for a monster truck for every single birthday with zero luck. Maybe this is your year!

    This is like golf, it's only fun when you do it yourself and only interesting to watch when you are completely wasted and there in person.

    AAAaaaaawwww then he got cocky and immediately derped! Ah well, still pretty awesome run! :-D

    I haven't watched monster trucks since I was 5. Are all monster truck shows this boring? He did two cool moves and that's it.

    But the front flip at regular speed was impressive!

    I'm pretty sure the high flying stunts cause things to break. So... yes. Probably still boring. It would maybe be interesting to be there what with all the alcohol fumes and alcohol served to the crowd.
