While it sounds completely and utterly insane that mega trucks, monster trucks, and drag racing would have anything similar to each other, we think that they do. In fact, we think that the same scenario that’s currently playing out in the drag racing world is playing out with the big trucks you see in the video below.
This is footage from the Trucks Gone Wild event at Iron Horse and specifically a look at the freestyle highlights. Trucks Gone Wild may not have invented the Mega Truck but they certainly perfected the way to promote and show them off. It is to the point now where there are hundreds and hundreds of them across the country competing and showing off at a multitude of events. Heck, they are even being invited to race at some of the big monster trucks shows and series. We’d argue that they are the drag radial cars of their world.
The drag radial guys have been grown and bolstered by social media the entire time that they have been around. These racers have developed their own fan following, their own events, series, and movement behind them. They too are being invited to compete at the biggest traditional drag racing events now and they are bringing fans with them.
So, in considering those two points, does it still seem like a wacky notion that there’s major differences between the mega truck world and the drag racing world? We don’t think it is so crazy to consider!
