    @TheMarkus100000 Dennis Anderson (Grave Digger) won the event, defeating Rod Schmidt (Monster Patrol) in the finals. The final round race is at 4:05 in the video.

    @marcus8151 The U.S. Off-road Series event in March was also televised on TNN's Motor Madness in 1999. There are some videos on YouTube already, of Grave Digger's freestyle from the event (If you've seen the videos of Grave Digger #8 freestyling on a MTEG-type track, with most of the body missing, those are from that event).

    holy crap i remember watching these every friday night as a kid, loved the stadium trucks! never knew samson was running a KB always thought it was an all chevy truck…

    @NeuesZiel Dan Patrick still owns and drives the Samson monster truck, however, I've heard that he may have plans to retire from driving soon.

    @MrAvenger2 Yes, that was a U.S. Off-road series event held at the Kingdome in March 1999, and was the final Pace Motorsports-sanctioned event in the Kingdome. I think Bounty Hunter and 2Xtreme were also at that event, performing freestyle runs on the track.

    @DiggerFanJSB Oh yeah, of course, lol. I can't believe I forgot that one, haha. That place has got some history too. Good and bad, if you recall that terrible accident that happened about 2 years ago, but that's not the point here. Kudos on the upload man.

    @DesertRacer75 The closest venue to Seattle that still hosts monster truck events (that I know of), is the Tacoma Dome in Tacoma, Washington.

  12. DesertRacer75

    I miss the old Kingdome… Never been there but I thought it was cool, cause it had a huge floor, and hosted many great monster truck events. Are there any other venues in the Seattle area that still host MT shows?
