Monster Trucks are rowdy 1500 horsepower beasts that fly, flip and flail 50 feet up in the air. But where did they even start? And how long have they been around? Join Nolan as he explores how one of America's favorite pastimes started as one man's hobby.

I'd make an old school one called Mustang *the horse* and it'd have an oldschool Mustang body with a mustang running on the side with mustang in the middle. It'd be powered by a 450 ci super charged engine with a 29 inch lift and muscle rims.

On the cars that it crushes are written the words, BLM, Anti-FA, Commies, Socialists, Election Stealers, China, Swam Rats, Deep State, Clintons "Didn't" kill Epstein, Critical Race Theory, Green Puke Deal, Socialized Healthcare. I love your vids and pods donut but when you interject dopey SJW crap in your podcasts I stop listening. Don't ruin the masterpiece you've created with disgusting whiney liberal tears.

I remember watching monster trucks racing in a river on TV when I was a kid. This was back when they had full metal bodies and the engines were still in the front. The giant tires made the trucks buoyant enough to halfway float. They didn’t go very fast so I don’t think anybody ever tried doing it again.

Lol give Nolan a break if ur not a long time fan you wont know everything but Tom is the Professor monster jam for a reason and 2007 overseas he did a move that actually sent him into a backflip but in 2007 a truck doing a backflip was literally unheard of.... reasons why other drivers attempted like Travis after they saw Tom’s footage.

This was such a great idea for an episode. Thanks for following through, doing the research, as it was very well paced and edited. I'm not a huge fan, but I was born in '78, absolutely loved Stompers toy trucks as a kid, and I did live in the pacific NW for a few yrs... IMPOSSIBLE to avoid Mud Bog races and Monster Trucks.

Everett Jasmer met Bob Chandler in July of 1979 at a mud run in Detroit Lakes, MN. Bob ran a four wheel drive shop as did Everett, and each used their four wheel drive trucks to promote their business. After Bigfoot, a yet-to-be-named USA-1, and Everett's 1979 daily driver, cinema named, Silver Bullet trucks were featured in 'Take This Job and Shove It', the monster truck industry was started. That movie gave the general public a glimpse at what could be done with a four wheel drive pickup truck. As the other industry pioneers, Bearfoot, King Kong and others graced magazine covers, book publishers, car dealerships, toy and model manufacturers all wanted in on the monster truck craze. A Playskool Bigfoot, Lanard King Kong, Road Champs Bearfoot and a Nylint All American and Eagle showed up in toy stores across the country. These trucks also caught the attention of other industries as sponsorship from mainstream companies showed up on the sides of the trucks. Ford Bigfoot, True Value Master Mechanic USA-1, and Seth Doulton's Copenhagen/Skoal Crusher and Bandit trucks.

Bob drove Bigfoot on 66" tires at the Silverdome. Bigfoot 8 was the first truck to use a tube chasis and was banned by USHRA for a half a season so other teams could catch up with their technology. There were the Battle, War, and Return of The Monster Trucks TV specials in the 80's Battle being the first side by side race on Television. There was also the TNT Monster Truck Challenge in 1988 89 and 1990. This would become the Penda Points Series. Then there's Monster Wars in 1995 which would become part of TNN Motor Madness which would become MONSTER JAM in 1999. There's alot you missed dude.

Me watching this video like: I saw the og big foot and the big foot with the huge military tires and the little thing with tracks on it because I used to live like 5 mins from where they would keep them. Also me, I’ve met the dude who made big foot because my mom used to teach there kids.

Funny thing is Snakebite is just Bigfoot with a different body for when they had two Bigfoot’s booked for the same show. Also I’d love a black Holden HQ Monaro body on a mister truck. That would be mad. Probably named something weird like Jörmungandr or something like that.
