The rider BIG ED BECKLEY sits on his Harley jump bike with sweat dripping down his forehead stares down the long ramp out of the grandstand heading towards the ramp and a long line of cars and then the place he wants to land on is a long way to safety.
With the crowd cheering him on he let’s the clutch out and the Harley starts rolling down to the ramp as he guns the motor to gain speed and then let’s it fly off the take off ramp – will he make history or BE HISTORY? Come see Big Ed attempt the Death Jump as he defies Death and puts his safety all on the line! ” I have Jesus on my side and I will rely on him to get me across to that landing area and stop before I smash into a wall – come and see me risk it all!!,” said BIG Ed Beckley.
Beckley , 64 years old, who has nerves of steel and has crashed hard twice with life threatening injuries in the last two years ( Jan. 5th, 2012 and March 7th, 2014 ) has been a motorcycle daredevil for many years ( over 40) is on his Farewell Tour.
He will be revving up his Harley-Davidson’s and jumping at these CFP NO LIMITS MONSTER TRUCK events:

Monster Trucks like BIGFOOT – NASTY BOY – RAT ATTACK – UNNAMED & UNTAMED – WICKED SICKNESS will race side by side over jumps and old cars from Dodge City Salvage. They will hit thsose cars in the side and go flying over 30 feet in the air and land like DUMBO on the other side. They are competing for the fifty- thousand dollar Monster Truck Challenge!
That is not the only KODAK moment as local racers get in the action with Tuff Truck races and UTV races. This year the Monster Truck Racing course will challenge the drivers to see who is best.

Beckley is from nearby Scott City and also lived in Dodge City for many years.
“Jumping my Harley in front of my home area is a dream come true. I just hope and pray it is not a nightmare jump attempt and crash like I had this past March in Hobbs, New Mexico the same size arena. Everyone was pretty shook up when I died twice on the way to the Lubbock Hospital in the Air Ambulance during a 40 minute ride!” said Beckley.
And if all that isn’t enough, there will also be a Monster Ride Truck that is a big hit with the fans! Rides will be available in a real monster truck with racing seats and safe for all ages, from 4 year olds to their grandparents! It is exciting to feel what the ride is like and is well worth the additional ticket fee to ride.

For upcoming events and the rest of our schedule from August through April is currently is on line.
Other dates might be added but to see what we have now go to this link.
We at the Checkered Flag offices are working on our November schedule as well as January-February-March & April event dates.
This last year has been a good one with changes we have needed to make in a long time. We feel our shows are tighter with not as many delays as well as formatting to where we have you spent more time watching action and less time being there. In other words we are striving to keep you time in the grandstand like you would in a movie about 2 hrs at the maximum.
We also will be stepping up our social media presence on FaceBook and other avenues. We will become very active with give-a-ways and other ways to win on our websites for the fans.
We are also changing around many of our trucks so that you can see some new talent but of course your old favorites especially Larry Quick will be back in the Ghost Ryder Mustang.
We will strive to be the first monster truck show you see not the last.
Mud Bog Races as well as Tractor Pulls will become part of our events – bigger is always better so that is our plan.
Stay tuned more coming your way!

This past Saturday night June 21st was the first time Big Ed Beckley had attempted a motorcycle jump since his terrible crash March 7th. Ed suffered many injuries and a month of hospital time. He has been working out in the gym and having Travis Smith do allot of work on the BTR HARLEY SPORTSTER jump bike getting ready for the jump he just made at the Abilene Speedway.
Getting the Harley ready was Travis Smith, a former factory mechanic, who did some big changes on the Sportster. Travis explained, ” We have re valved the suspension and moved the rear shock reservoir and the battery box as they were both hitting the rear tire when the suspension compressed which is not good. ” Travis came to help Ed in Abilene and that took a huge load off Ed and the crew. This guy knows his stuff and that Harley was sounding great.
Ed was successful on Saturday clearing 10 trucks with the race fans on the edge of their seats and watched his jump!
Check out this video by Adam Williams who is on our crew.
