Posted April 8, 2019, by Bryan Jackson (bryan [at] ebryans [dot] com)

God opened up the beautiful skies for this nostalgic bridge shoot in Byars Oklahoma. Enjoy as Bryan Jackson, Founder of Vertical Adrenaline Motocross Ministries, performs his Doug Domokos "Wheelie King" Tribute performances on the resurrected one-lane bridge that connects Byars in McClain County and Wanette in Pottawatomie County Oklahoma. At 785 feet, it is the longest camel-back truss bridge in the state of Oklahoma.

Filming took some 3 hours, using 8 cameras - and a drone. A special thanks to Jeff Cox photography for his insight and incredible photo and videographer skills. And to Bryans wife Tina for capturing some incredible stills during the filming process. Post production was done by Bryan himself.

Bryan enjoys traveling and incorporates his stunts with his appearances, racing, and ministry with Vertical Adrenaline.

All things Bryan Jackson and Vertical Adrenaline can be found online at www.VerticalAdrenaline.com as well as his Facebook and Instagram. He'll have your face and heart smiling as he uses his God given gifts and talents as a platform and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
