Bart and Homer are excited to learn that a monster truck rally is coming to Springfield, then discover it is on the same night as Lisa’s band concert. After the concert ends, the Simpsons rush out to the rally - only to arrive late and have their car eaten by a fire-breathing steam shovel known as Truckosaurus. Nonetheless, they watch the rest of the show, where Bart is awed by a reckless motorcycle daredevil named Lance Murdock. Bart imitates Murdock’s stunts on his skateboard, and, for the topper, decides to jump Springfield Gorge. Bart cannot be talked out of the leap so Homer rushes to stop him. He does save Bart - only to go toppling down the cliff himself, in one of the series’ classic moments.
