It looks like something out of a Hollywood movie – dust flying after the giant monster truck launches skyward before rolling and landing upside down.
But American driver Kreg Christensen was not even shaken after his monster truck Wicked crashed during a media call at the Adelaide Showground at Wayville yesterday.
A spokeswoman for Gilbert Racing, which is hosting Saturday night’s Sprint Auto Parts Monster Slam, said Christensen was known for “causing mass destruction wherever he goes”.
She said he walked away without injury and was “more annoyed at having to repair the truck in the heat” after the crash.
“He’s been working on repairing the truck, he’s fine,” she said.
