The monster truck more or less just rolled backwards and happen to land on his wheels.

ah...looks like he added a whole lot more gas on that last attempt. The one where he nearly rotated landed him pretty much in the middle of the boxes.

ERROR: If you can see this, then YouTube is down or you don't have Flash installed.

eyes:
will no shit !!!! :tonka:

in the slow play you can see where the ramp failed !!!

with the increase in speed they needed to increase the resistance on the first ramp to prevent it from just drooping down when the tires first hit it :tonka:

Is there really any good reason to get hurt pulling off a stunt?

Monster truck backflip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCXV-8BZ_2s&NR=1

It doesn't really count since he hit the ground on his top, but rednecks are dumb so I guess for them it's a backflip.

I'm glad to see he's ok. The boxes were there all along. They never took them out. That would have been pretty cool.

Did you watch the video?

The ramp malfunctioned which sent him flying farther than it should have if he had been sent into a flip. It's called physics.
