i'd say that looks like either the metrodome or the silverdome, or possibly even texas stadium.

i'm guessing the event is from 1992. whether the bus is an obstacle or not is beyond me. i'd say no - most likely for a stunt or something.

Gladiator

The Gladiator was Dave Rife's (Black Widow / American Bad ***) truck. It was the one before the super tall truck that was Black Widow from Michigan.

...and don't see any cars so were they running an off road course? Was that bus as obstacle? Where the heck was it?
From other photos, I've seen, they did have car crush jumps at that show. On the Excaliber photo page, there are pictures of the truck jumping cars at the same event (http://monsterphoto.iwarp.com/excali2.htm).

From the looks of it, the event may be from around 1990-1994, as that's when that Playn' For Keeps truck raced, I think.

hello to answer all the questions: the show is the molson supercross mid 90's truck were excalibur 3 (chucky) ,mongoose (watros),play'n for keeps(birgy) and gladiator (rife) I attended that show as well as many shows in the skydome. I gave dennis those pics from a friend of mine. I have been in the sport since the beginning so be on the lookout for more old school pics.
btw I was at the show the year that bigfoot & carolina crusher both flipped at the same time. Bandit

I would say its most likey 92 or 93, being Excaliber still had blue on the sides, birgy had a primer s-10 grille in his truck and mongoose still had the square ford body, i think he put on the more rounded one in 94.
