Feb 7, 2012
being sidelined due to injury, Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam® driver, Frank
Krmel has been cleared to resume driving the Advance Auto Parts Grinder and
will do so in Rosemont, IL this weekend at the Allstate Arena. MonsterJam.com was able to sit down with
Krmel and ask him a few questions.
Are you excited
to get back behind the wheel of Grinder at Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam?
Yes, I am ecstatic. It’s been the longest 8 weeks of my life. I cannot
wait to put that fire suit back on and jump in the seat of Grinder.
Is it tough to
get back in the swing of things after being sidelined for awhile or is driving at
Monster Jam like riding a bike?
We’ll find out! I think I will be fine. Mark, Tyson and Katie are a
great Monster Jam crew and I know they have been keeping the monster truck in
great shape. I can’t wait to fire up the
Advance Auto Parts Grinder for the first time and pull out on to the floor. I
can’t wait for the feeling.
Can fans expect
a big comeback performance this weekend from Advance Auto Parts Grinder?
The Chicago fans are going to get a great show. I will do everything I
can to get the Advance Auto Parts Grinder in the winner’s circle. I want to
pick up right where we left off last season.
How do you feel
Nicole Johnson performed in your absence?
Nicole was put in a pretty tough position. Driving a truck like Advance
Auto Parts Grinder is a big
responsibility, and can be a tough job for a Monster Jam veteran, let alone a 2nd
year driver. With that said, she did a great job.
Are you looking
forward to competing more in racing or freestyle this weekend at Monster Jam?
If it involves me getting to drive my Advance Auto Parts Grinder truck
than I can’t wait, wheelie contest, racing, freestyle, anything. I might
even sleep in the monster truck Thursday night!
I really cannot wait to get back to work!
