Thunder Nationals 2008

For the 8th year in a row, I took my nephew to the Monster Truck Thunder Nationals Competition for his birthday. Every year, he gets a tshirt and a program book (which gets autographed by all the drivers after competition). He told me he still has ALL his program books -and- all the tshirts. He really enjoys the shows and it's our one time of the year we do something together, just the two of us.

The favorite of the evening was the Tazmanian Devil truck "Taz".

The last event of the evening was the Freestyle Competition. The last driver was the fans' favorite "Taz". Taz ended up flipping over right in front of us. Everyone in the stands stood to look. As you can see, the driver was unharmed. I was video'ing the freestyle with my cell phone, but with the excitement I forgot to save it. Duh.
