The 2015 season has already been a busy one for Devin Jones and the Barbarian Monster Truck as they're embarking on a busy first quarter schedule with Monster Jam. They kicked off the new year in Houston, Texas at NRG Stadium as part of an extra treat for the die hard fans in Houston by competing in the Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle challenge against Todd LeDuc of Metal Mulisha and 6 other trucks. Devin delievered a strong performance with some big air and slap wheelies but didn't dethrone the reigning champion.
After some quick repairs Devin was off to San Antonio, Texas for two big shows at the Alamodome. Devin was fast enough to qualify in the top 8 both days in a row to make the racing bracket, but would be defeated in round one both days. Freestyle was where Devin shined this weekend as he had the Barbarian working well and thrilling the crowd. Saturday night's freestyle performance earned Devin a 6th place performance, while on Sunday afternoon he piloted Barbarian to a 7th place score.
This week Devin and the Barbarian are headed back to Houston to visit NRG Stadium for the second time this season against another great field of trucks. Be sure to keep up with us by liking our Facebook page here for more on the Barbarian Monster Truck.

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.
