History was made Saturday on top of four giant wheels at the 2017 Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle Championship in Las Vegas.
In a move that shocked the Monster Truck world, and anyone who has the slightest understanding of basic physics, driver Lee O’Donnell attempted and landed the first-ever front flip in the history of the event.
Here’s a couple looks at how the monumental move went down:

Driving a badman ‘Mad Scientist’ truck, O’Donnell’s experiment went just about as planned, sending the Las Vegas fans in attendance to roars as his back wheel found the dirt.
Monster truck drivers have, in fact, landed front-flips before in practice and other competitions, but this was the first-ever completed in Monster Jam.
