Click above to watch the video after the jump

If you watched the Winter Olympics over the past few weeks, you likely witnessed some amazing flips and tricks by skiers and snowboarders alike. Pretty impressive, right? We think so, but if you're a monster truck fan you might be even more awestruck by what we have post-jump.

You may remember last year when Travis Pastrana tried unsuccessfully to do a backflip in the Nitro Circus monster truck. Fast forward one year and Pastrana's buddy Cam McQueen has succeeded where the famous daredevil has failed. Hit the jump to watch video proof of McQueen's accomplishment. The video is only 18 seconds long and it's short on production skills, but it ends with a bang as the multi-ton truck nails a near perfect backflip in front of thousands of monster truck fans.

        Thanks for showing that it's already been done. Either way, this sets a new standard of performance and expectations for these crazy vehicles. Monster truck competitions are fun in their own way. I've wondered if vehicles not quite so radical could be truly useful durring natural disasters like we've seen recently. You know, fording flood swollen rivers, going through four feet of snow, getting people and supplies to needy people, etcetera.

      This is NOT the first time. The first time was last year at the Vermonster Mud Fest in Bradford, Vt. The driver was Larry Quick. Look it up on youtube

      We were there, it was awesome, the whole place went nuts. And the announcer said it was the first CLEAN backflip landed at a Monster Jam event.

        I applaud most motorsports and all, but this...ehhhh.

        It's too easy to dismiss monster trucks. It's the stuff of children and rednecks (who most folks don't really want their children looking up to). Neat, yes, but count this elitist city-slicker unimpressed.

      I cant say that I'd call it a sport exactly, but it is entertaining. and I'd rather have my son and daughter watching trucks flying and crashing than watching professional "wrestlers" parade around spouting everthing but profanity and wearing as little as is required to get past the tv sensors.
      as to the drivers driving the trucks like they stole them, and not caring if they break, well, that's what the people come to see. broken trucks fill the seats, and so do local drivers. that's why, if you do a little checking, you will find that at most shows, there will be at least one local driver in a name monster truck. he wont be famous, but he will most likely have worked the shows in the past as grounds crew, or maybe even raced his own tough-truck or jeep in a supporting event.
      Monster trucks may never reach the level of CART, Formula 1, or NASCAR, but when was the last time you worked with a guy on friday, and went and watched him drive a racecar on Saturday. for that reason this will always be a grass roots event. if this makes me a redneck, then long live the rednecks!
