Yep, that's him. He tends to push the limit, I think he found it.
Seems weird it went nose up being a front engine truck, but it made for a great video.

I think the rapter was Larenger racing if I'm correct. But I'm not sure.
And the YouTube description says this guys name is Mike Higgins.

Probably a good thing, otherwise I can't see how he would have survived a nose dive of that magnitude! I was surprised he wasnt injured at all by the way he did land.... I'm sure his neck was feelin a little sore the next day!

I think the wind got under the body at the end. It looked good right up until it started going down.

I was starting to think I was the only one thinking that.

"Congratulations to Mike Higgins and his Ford Raptor."

I thought maybe that was meant to be sarcastic...

X2

It came up nose high but, it parachuted towards the end. If he is going to be trying to get huge air he needs to vent the body to let the air through.

Nice jump though.

Buddy of mine did that when we were teenagers.

Except it was a 64 Valiant.

And it was a gravel pit.

And he broke 4 ribs, and shattered both ankles.

But the air time looked the same!

For once I agree with you. Not only would a trophy truck have flown much more level, but it also would've driven away from a landing like that without a fuss.
