Which begs the question, why did an 8 year old drive that monster truck? I hope it doesn't annihilate anyone. This debacle is getying me worried.
One way to get out of paying for them until they turn 18 <_<
I would be very hesitant but if there were strong safety procedures i would be open to it i guess, just as i'd be open to letting a kid go on a fairground ride ... i doubt there were strong safety procedures so heck no.

The better question is, what part of Alabama did that video come from? (yee-haw!!!!)
When I was 8, I sure wanted to ride in a monster truck, but that was when they were at the height of their popularity. Hell, me and Dad even went to a Monster truck pull/rally at Texas Stadium when I was that age. I remember it because Gravedigger broke an axle, and there was some transformer like thing that got stuck on a car it was trying to go over.
(Gravedigger was always my favorite because it was based on a 50's Suburban, and Grandpa has a '50 Chevy truck. )
I don't think I'd let a kid of mine drive one of those things. Hell, I have my reservations about those little track-carts, and they seem way safer.
As for actual 8-year-olds in monster trucks, since you didn't link to a video of that, I went on a video search and found footage of an 8-year-old driving around in a stadium for Family Events, and he seemed to be driving pretty well. As long as all safety concerns have been addressed before the kid began driving around, I'd let him or her.
Say hello to KJ, who's 9 now.
The truck is not a full-size model, naturally. It's half-size, so he wouldn't be caught driving it out on the road.
