I still think Jim Kramer's endo in Bigfoot #6 (?) at Indy was pretty gnarly for the time. The whole body was pretty much trashed.
I agree, and even if it's not the most violent it could quite possibly be one of the most influential flips in the history of the sport. I believe it was this flip that made Bob Chandler and the Bigfoot organization see that changes had to be made for the sake of the drivers or someone would end up getting killed. Thus a few years later Bigfoot 8 was born and the sport was changed forever.

this one still sticks out in my head. i know it probably didnt cause as much damage to the truck as some of the other mentions here, but take a look at maxd in this clip: [ame="http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&videoid=42733 441"]Monster Jam Video by Rick - MySpace Video@@AMEPARAM@@http:[email protected]@AMEPARAM@@mediaservices@@AMEPARAM@@mys pace@@AMEPARAM@@Services/Media/Embed@@AMEPARAM@@aspx/m@@AMEPARAM@@42733441[/ame]
if this was formula one or nascar, indeed this would be really bad question. i can see rickfl's point.
F1, Cart, Nascar, SCCA,Monster Trucks, it doesn't matter. People forget that a lot of "fans" are only into auto racing to see wrecks. Youtube search "xxxxx Wrecks" and you'll get probably 5-10 pages of nothing but horrible crashes in montage video's.
It should be accepted by now that accident's happen. No reason to try and hide the fact because it's not morale to speak of it or something silly.
