Description: Highlights from this weekend’s Monster Nationals event at the Sears Centre Arena in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, which featured the U.S. debut of Australian Clive Featherby and Outback Thunda!

Outback Thunda Ready for First Ever Event in U.S.

Monster truck fans attending this weekend’s Monster Nationals at the Sears Centre Arena in suburban Chicago will be in for a treat as, for the first time ever, an Australian monster truck and driver will be competing in a U.S. event. Australian monster truck pioneer Clive Featherby will take on E3 Spark Plugs Bigfoot, Lucas Oil Stabilizer, Heavy Hitter, Chalkboard Chuck and Star Marshal in his Outback Thunda machine.

Australian Clive Featherby will make his U.S. competitive debut this weekend in Outback Thunda III.

Following the sale of Clive’s Extreme Monster Trucks Australia promotion company last fall, the newest version of Outback Thunda was shipped to the United States and is being housed out of the Paul Shafer Motorsports shop in Indiana. Clive is actively seeking to book the truck as he looks to see how he stacks up against the best in the United States.

Clive will be flying out of Brisbane on Thursday and will take part in the media day on Friday morning in preparation for the weekend’s competition. It will be Clive’s second ever time in the newest version of Outback Thunda, after having his Brisbane South Pacific World Finals III effort was cut short after only about 30 seconds in the truck.

Clive is very excited about the opportunity to race in the U.S. and very thankful to Family Events for the opportunity. The team, with mechanic Barry Gaunt is looking forward to a solid showing this weekend and also to future events in the U.S. over the course of the season.
