    The Silverdome is dying

    I can't hear the name Silverdome without thinking of all the classic USHRA shows in the 80s. Seeing an event there would have been a religious pilgrimage for me as a twelve year-old.

    Pretty sad to see the shape it's in now. It's not officially slated for demolition, but I can't imagine that it's far away after seeing these pictures. From what I understand, literally everything inside the stadium is for sale.

    Know some monster truck historians,wanted to get some of the seats out of the Silverdome and set up at the museum in Alburn, with videos of monster trucks playing that you could watch from the Silverdome seats.But since they no longer have any thing to do with the museum,it probably wont happen.

    What happened to this stadium breaks my heart. I went to 3 or 4 events there included the last show with 18 trucks. It was a great venue for monster jam. I wonder what will happen to the property as its like 15 miles from where I live.

    The Astrodome in Houston is just sitting there collecting dust, I may add. They auctioned the seats yet no one knows what wll become of its fate. And like the Silverdome, it also has a great history of monster truck action.

    As of 7/23, the Oakland press announced that the Pontiac Silverdome parking lot will host a drag racing event.

    The problem is, the city of Pontiac is broke and the owner of the stadium has no clue what to do with it now. I work across from them dome and its sad to see everyday.
