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.

Totally forgot about Pauken's Escalade crash.
There was a cell phone video of it in this thread but its long gone. It was very bizarre and scary to watch. Broke his wrist or something i think...

ryan andersons ride at the world finals 11 encore was a bit scary! with ALOT OF WOW
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://mediaservices.myspace.com/Services/Media/Embed.aspx/m=42733441@@AMEPARAM@@mediaservices@@AMEPARAM@@mys pace@@AMEPARAM@@Services/Media/Embed@@AMEPARAM@@aspx/m@@AMEPARAM@@42733441[/ame]
holy crap! where was that event? That was a nasty roll!
A) Insert random Monster Jam wreck here, with the driver being protected by a regulation rollcage, HANS device, and countless other safety innovations and managing to escape with a broken bone or two
B) A crash from an era that was just starting to develop safety regulations where the driver is pronounced DEAD, AS IN NO LONGER LIVING at the scene before being revived.
Gee, I wonder which one is worse.
No matter how stupid Mayhem gets, it's ALWAYS a source of entertainment, even if the entertainment is unintentional.

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.

I could post something witty here, but I decided against it. And now I have wasted your time by making you read this.
