The Crusher goes big during its record-breaking jump in Washington State.
Straight from Evergreen Speedway in Washington State comes a video of a fearless driver going for broke in his semi-truck. The truck builds up speed for a few laps and then hits a jump. Now, you would think he had a landing prepared to absorb at least a bit of the impact, but no, not this guy. This video was first picked up by the guys at Bangshift.com, who wondered how the truck stayed level after takeoff with its huge diesel engine.
The weight of the huge back wheels must have helped a bit, but it's a fair point. In any case, the jump and cajones needed to pull this is off is quite spectacular. Check out the clip below of the The Crusher in action.
