In San Antonio, Barbarian made it to the second round of racing but fell short to the fast time qualifier. Freestyle saw huge air with slap wheelies and a run ending in a roll over which scored 21 making it good for 4th out of 17 trucks. In Houston Barbarian did ok in racing. Started with a good freestyle but rear steer issues ended the run prematurely. With the likes of the top contenders of Monster Jam, Barbarian set fastest qualifier but lost in the second round of racing. A great freestyle run ended with a score of 20 points. St. Louis is in the books with a solid mid-pack qualifying time, but faced World Racing Champion, John Seasock, in the first round. Freestyle was solid with decent air and the truck ending on its top. Barbarian finished 5th with a score of 22 points. Trying to go for the M.A.P. Championship three years running in Austin, Barbarian won all 6 out of 6 events. Continuing for a strive at the Championship, Barbarian took both racing wins, but fell short to a local truck on the rest of the events in Odessa. With the biggest show of the year, in front of 70,000 fans, Barbarian had a bad bounce in the qualifying pass sending the truck in a barrel roll. The crew thrashed hard to fix the damage on the truck to come out in freestyle. Freestyle ended up with a score of 22. Waco started off with the crowd on their feet as Barbarian's wheelie stuck the truck vertical for over two minutes. With the M.A.P. Championship within grasp, Barbarian ended up sweeping all the competitions in Waco. The last stop right before Vegas, Kearney, Nebraska, saw both wheelie and freestyle wins. The team heads to Las Vegas, Nevada for the Young Gun Championship at the Monster Jam World Finals.


The Barbarian truck debut a brand new wrap at the Monster Jam World Finals, especially for the Vegas crowd. After having trouble adjusting to the fast track, Barbarian qualified 9th and had to face El Diablo in the first round. Winning the first round led up to racing a friend, the number one qualifier, Titan. With a very close race, Barbarian came out within 3/100th of a second behind Titan. After being nominated for a few awards, Barbarian was pleasantly surprised to receive the Rising Star of the Year Award.


At Ft. Smith on night one, Barbarian swept all but one event and the second night started off great with wheelie and racing wins but suffered a broken crank in the motor ending the night short.


Night one in Springdale, Arkansas was cancelled due to storms. On the second night, Barbarian won three out of five events (qualifying, wheelie, and Chicago style).


The team prepares for its biggest challenge of the year, with more trucks than ever on Barbarians home turf, Miami, OK.

With the start of the 2013 season underway, Devin and Barbarian headed to the BOK Center in Tulsa OK to take on some of the best in the business. Chaulking up a tailgate rippin wheelie win to start off the night, and just being edged out of first round against Monster Energy. Freestyle would bring a score of 22 which is pretty good early score with world champs Ryan Anderson and Marc McDonald there.


Sunday show would see Devin stand truck straight vertical and walking it across the top of cars but was only good for 2nd place. Racing against Tulsa native Marc McDonald in first round again , this time Devin was victorious but the photo finish call in semis against Monster Energy would be end to the hopes of a race win. Only freestyle left to go Barbarian came straight out of parking stall going big on van stack and continued a impressive start to a solid freestyle when truck nearly cleared all cars and pogoed on back bar tripping the rear kill resulting in a tie for 3rd and 4th.


With some minor repairs done, the team is heading to a series of huge stadium shows for Monster Jam. With stops in San Antonio, Houston, Indianapolis, and St. Louis the team has its work cut of for them. Stay tuned for results.

As the final shows in 2012 come to close for the Barbarian truck , Devin was on his way to Europe to pilot California Kid for Straight Up Racing. Friend Bill Payne knows how hard Devin drives and works so was not a huge surprise that he was asked to be part of this opportunity. With stops in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and for first time ever Moscow Russia Devin showed he was there to win.

August 18th 2012


With one of the busiest summer schedules Devin has ever had, Barbarian was a force to reckon with sweeping every event in Denison IA and Garden City KS. This brought team to a tough lineup in Lincoln NE. Devin started the night off right with wheelie win and fastest qualifier only to make a huge mistake in turn and fall to good friend Jon Zimmer in final round of racing. With the support of the entire crowd, Devin did not disappoint putting down one of the best freestyles he has ever done.

                                                                                                                                                                                               

 June 20th 2012

 With a great first quarter in the books and winning the title of MAP 2012 Champion. Winning the hometown show was in the site of Devin's eyes. With both big freestyle wins and a racing win. Devin showed that it was his domain and not even the best in the business was gonna take it away. The Kaboom Motorsports team summer schedule continues to be a dominate one getting runner up to Jon Zimmer at a huge event in Mount Pleasant MI. Devin bought a new meaning to Soaring Eagle Casino over the bus stack.

 

 

 

 

The new year is well underway and it has been a solid start to the season for the Kaboom Motorsports team, as Devin and Barbarian have taken on the stars of Monster Jam all around the midwest. Starting off 2012, Devin knew it would be a tough road ahead, not only moving up to the premiere Monster Jam series, but doing so with a brand new truck. This assessment has proved correct as the new truck has had its share of bugs to work out, but that hasn't stopped Devin from contending for wins on a weekly basis.

 

The season kicked off just down the road from home in Tulsa, Oklahoma for two big shows at the BOK Center. The show featured a stellar eight truck lineup and even though Devin laid down some great performances, with Pablo Huffaker and Adam Anderson in the lineup, runner-up was about the best you could hope for. The first weekend for the new truck was a success as Devin was very pleased with the new chassis, commentating on its great feel, stability and predicting it would be a great piece for big air.

From Tulsa, it was on to Wichita, Kansas for another three show weekend at the INTRUST Bank Arena. The lineup would again be a tough eight truck field, but Devin was ready to see what the new truck could really do this weekend. A sweep of the wheelie contests and a big freestyle win on Friday night showed exactly what Barbarian is capable of.

 

 

The third weekend would be another big test as the team headed north for a big stadium event at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Devin drew veteran Dan Patrick in Samson in the first round of racing and was even ahead into the final turn, but a slight bobble would result in a first round loss. Devin was ready for freestyle, time to air out the new truck. Unfortunately after three big hits, the rear driveshaft broke and that would be all for Barbarian.

 

This past weekend would wrap up the month of January in Little Rock, Arkansas at the Verizon Arena. Devin wasted no time serving notice that the Barbarian would be tough on Friday night, taking his fourth wheelie contest win of the year and going to the final of racing against Bounty Hunter. Unfortunately driveline problems struck again in the donut contest as the rotator assembly came apart putting Barbarian out for freestyle. Devin was determined to make up for it on Saturday, but problems struck again as the rear ring gear broke on the first hit in wheelies, ending the weekend prematurely.

 

The month of January definitely had its ups and downs for the Kaboom Motorsports team, but 5 wins in the tough Monster Jam series is a great start to the year. Devin is working the bugs out of the new truck and getting ready for this weekend's big stadium Monster Jam in Houston, Texas. Check out the updated Schedule page and be sure follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with the latest news!

 

 

The Kaboom Motorsports team would like to wish all of our fans a very Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours!  The new truck is progressing nicely and we are very excited to show it off, so keep watching for some photos as it gets closer to completion. We are also in the process of having some brand new Hero Cards made up, so be sure to watch for those and pick one up for your collection.

 

We are very excited to announce our 2012 Schedule for 1st Quarter!  The big news is that Devin and Barbarian will be returning to the Monster Jam series and competing in stadium events in Minneapolis, Houston and El Paso. Additionally we will be returning to our good friend John Darnell's MAP Motorsports tour, performing in some of our favorite cities - Austin, Odessa and Waco. Check the Schedule out and see if Devin and Barbarian will be coming to a town near you!
