Monster Energy is bringing you its newest crazy stunt vid from Formula Drift champ Vaughn Gittin Jr Adding to a long list of awesome videos, Gittin Jr takes it to a whole new extreme by driving, jumping and smoking the tire of his 2014 Monster Energy Nitto Tire Ford Mustang RTR through fire. Yes we said it, through fire.

"We just wanted to have some fun, do something different and push the limits to another level. I mean what could be more fun than explosions, fire balls, jumps, drifting and a Ford Mustang RTR screaming at over 7000 RPMs? I definitely scared myself more than once during the shoot," conceded Gittin, his Nitto tires often catching fire during the film. "But, hey! It was awesome and we sure had a blast!"
