There’s always something awesome about seeing a “first”, right? We don’t me a global “first ever” we mean a, “Oh damn, never seen that before!” moment. We suspect you’ll share the same reaction that we had while watching this incredible monster truck mid-air collision between Snake Bite and Red Solo Truck on the beach at Wildwood, New Jersey back in 2016. It’s a combo of some interesting elements that make this one of the neatest monster truck videos we have seen in a long, long time.
The first element is the course itself. It is a back and forth snake-like affair and it is long! Right there on the sands of the beach in New Jersey, you can see an amusement park in the background and there’s not a single car to be crushed. There are jumps and obstacles but no cars to crush. Watching the big trucks slide and maneuver through the corners is really fun. The tires float on the sand nicely and the “inside/outside” layout of the turns makes it a really fun back and forth course where it seems one truck is ahead but the other makes time rapidly when on the inside of the corners.
The big table top jump is the finish line and in this video, both trucks get there at the same time and they are trying to fly over it in the same airspace. The contact and tumble is wild, made more dramatic by the fact it happened at dusk and the added flying sand is awesome.
Both guys walked away. The trucks seemingly did not.
