If anyone knows a good way to transfer the good quality of YouTube videos to Instagram please let me know. This video still isn't that great quality on YouTube but it's better than this! This first video is on YouTube and it's 3 minutes long. The one and only time these tracks were ran in the Seattle King Dome. I found shortly after finding the tracks. Amazing footage I would really like to find the footage from the camera crew I can see filming in this video. The video is not long and not much is done but pretty badass! Wish it showed more!
And the second video I found watching hours and hours of vintage monster truck footage I found a split-second of the track moving and I put it in slow motion to be able to see it because it went by in a blink of an eye I barely saw it and it was right at the end of a long video.
The Santanimal that ran the Tracks! And the very first Santanimal truck!
The puller truck was designed and built by BobThompson.
Here are some great Vintage shots I've found in Vintage Monster Truck Groups of guys who were there that day and took them and others on the internet in Monster Truck tribute pages and such. This is the first Santanimal truck. It was a competition pull truck. Too bad the pulling events were apparently never televised.
Santanimal came from Santana Trucking & Excavating inc. They we're in charge of all the dirt that came in and out of the Kingdom back in the day and they still deal with the special clay mix dirt called infield gold that is used on the Mariners baseball field. Among other services they have.
And pics of it on the tracks! (I definitely give credit to the guys that were there on those days who took some of these photos I'm not sure who they were since I saved these all searching in the beginning)
Late post. July 19th Finally got the last of the Track parts!
Been trying to get ahold of this guy to get these Priceless parts from the tracks since last Christmas. Finally got ahold of him.
He had four tethering strips and to cleats that were ran. And one that's never been ran but only bolted down. I'm so happy to of obtained at least even one that's not taken off of a track. I can use it to reverse engineer and make things for them. Will make things a lot easier when I get to tearing them down.
