George Eisenhart Passes Away After Event Accident:  All of us at TheMonsterBlog.com offer our deepest sympathy and condolences to the family and friends of our friend George Eisenhart, who was fatally injured at Saturday night's event in Madison, WI. This tragic accident has taken one of our industry's best and brightest, a man committed to providing fun, family entertainment in the safest manner possible. The contributions George made to this industry are too many to list and he will be sorely missed by all those who were privileged enough to call him a friend. Those who knew him loved him, and those who only knew of him respected him. May he rest in peace.

For further information on the accident itself, we refer you to local news websites.  (01/25/09)

Monster Truck Racing Association Statement:  (St. Louis, MO) It is with heavy hearts that we must announce that we have lost a member of our MTRA family. George Eisenhart was injured in a non-racing accident at an event in Wisconsin. He received immediate attention from the medical team on site and was then transported to the University of Wisconsin hospital in Madison. We received word from the hospital early Sunday morning that George did not survive his injuries.
     Review of the incident shows that George accidentally stepped in front of a moving vehicle in a fashion that did not provide the vehicle’s driver adequate time to react. The situation did not happen as part of an actual competition portion of the event. The “on-track” activity was over and the vehicles involved were simply returning to their designated parking areas. This is a general workplace accident in which the extraordinary happened under what would previously have been considered ordinary conditions.
     All of us at the MTRA send our deepest condolences to the Eisenhart family and all the parties involved. We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend.  (01/25/09)

Gerding, Payne Take Friday Night Wins In Cape!!:  The MEGA Monster Truck Tour opened its 2009 season at Cape Girardeau, MO's Show Me Center Friday night, and it was Big Dawg and Rock Star taking the big wins. The racing competition would come down to Dale Gerding in Big Dawg and Bill Payne in Rock Star, and when the green light flashed, Gerding launched Big Dawg off the line and never looked back taking the win in front of the home-state fans.

     Freestyle would see solid efforts from Teri Olson in Miss Behavin, David Brown in Monster Patrol and Gerding in Big Dawg, but they were no match for Bill Payne and Rock Star.

     Payne tore around the track with huge wheelies, lots of air and tons of momentum. When the truck came to a stop, the crowd went wild and there was no doubt that Rock Star was the freestyle winner. The MEGA Monster Truck Tour is back in action tonight at the Show Me Center, stay tuned for more results!!  (01/24/09)
