Any rumors that Michael Vaters was done with monster truck racing were put to rest Saturday when he destroyed five cars and one street sign behind Hagerstown Ford.
Vaters' 11-foot-high Black Stallion roared around in a cordoned-off area, then plowed over five cars parked side-by-side. Vaters ran over the cars several times during two performances at the dealership on Massey Boulevard.
During the 11 a.m. stunt, Vaters couldn't get his truck stopped after a wheelie, and the 10,028-pound vehicle ran over a yield sign.
About 30 people gathered to watch the afternoon performance.
"It's pretty impressive. I'm surprised they let you get this close to it," said Paul Johnson, of Hagerstown, who brought his family to see Vaters.
