pexels-photo-29011When people think of sports, they usually think of going out into the great outdoors and having fun with their friends in a giant field. For instance, football is a fantastic physical sport but you’re going to need a lot of people to play with you and a huge field with goal posts and everything.

Grave Digger Monster Truck monster jame tall pictureWhen I was a kid, all monster trucks looked like Bigfoot. It was an awesome truck (I even owned a little Hot Wheels Bigfoot as a kid), but there was a huge need for something new.

Grave Digger’s redesign back in the mid-80’s was revolutionary. Its concept started the current trend of outrageous monster truck designs. Trucks like Bigfoot will always be in demand, but Grave Digger proved that you can have an outside-of-the-box design and still be competitive.

The Monster Energy Cup is the Daytona 500 of Supercross

Supercross monster energy cupIf you’re not a Supercross fan, what are you waiting for? Some of the world’s best riders face-off on a dirt track…in a stadium.

Can Davi Millsaps repeat this year and take home another Monster Energy Cup?
