First-ever front flip in Monster Jam truck on BKT Tyres

Eleven-time Monster Jam world champion Tom Meents made history  last week  as he landed the first-ever front flip in a monster truck.

BKT, the official and exclusive tyre manufacturer of Monster Jam, is very proud of this amazing result and congratulates the driver on the great success, said the company.

In front of 50,000 Monster Jam fans at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey (US) – and millions watching at home – Meents flipped forward once in the air and added an additional roll on the ground before coming to rest.

According to Monster Jam, it needed to land on all four wheels to be considered a success, and that is exactly what it did.

However, Meents just missed establishing a new Guinness World Records. Although Meents completed a full forward rotation, he bounced into an over-rotation so that his front tires did not hit the ground, as required by the Guinness World Record guidelines.
