Re: Insane truck racing crash.

The tire wall wasn't even a speedbump. That thing was FLYing across the grass.

Unlike a bike going off-road at high speed, these things don't appear to slow down very much. A bike would have come to a stop 1/2 way across the infield!

Are they racing on the edge of the Amazon? If the crash didn't kill the driver, it looked like nature might.

Why race semi trucks? Just doesn't seem too appealing to me. Is the goal to win the race as slow as possible?

Big rig racing was very popular in the 70's, don't know how popular it is today but it's still done.

That's almost as exciting as nascar. To each their own, I guess

At least the trucks in the first video appeared to be small, modded 'racing trucks' and that guy WAS hauling ass... across the grass
