Watch the first ever front flip in Monster Jam history

flip

Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas, Lee O’Donnell made history by pulling off the first ever front flip in a Monster Jam monster truck.

O’Donnell was competing in VP Racing Fuel’s Mad Scientist in the Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Championship when he began pulling a high-speed wheelie after a jump. He then hit another jump while his front wheels were up in the air, causing the back end of his truck to launch up, eventually somersaulting over the front end of his truck.

After completing a full front flip in the air, O’Donnell stuck the landing and the crowd roared. O’Donnell went on to grab the Freestyle Championship victory.

Watch all the action beginning Monday, April 9 on FS1.
