I always thought this these type of events were a European thing. There are some really cool videos out there. Have any of y'all ever been to or competed in this type of event? I'd like to drive the truck...

Timing...they has it.

I remember watching those events years ago on ABC's Wide World of Sports. Must have been back in the early 1970s and it seems one of the trucks they were using back then is still running. It was fun to see those guys hanging onto a firetruck as it pulled a big wheelstand leaving the starting line. I see these days that they're using the ladders as wheelie bars to prevent those wheelstands.

I thought it would be something to take part in, but it seems to be limited to volunteer fire departments from New York state and growing up a southern boy there were no opportunities to get into those games for me.
