  Monster Jam:  In your eyes how has the 2012 Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam® season been so far?

Tom Meents: The season has been going great!  The Maximum Destruction® team has been doing amazing and picking up wins wherever we go.  Neil Elliott and Kreg Christensen have been doing an outstanding job for us and bringing home victories for team Maximum Destruction.

Monster Jam:  What is it going to take to get your 10th Monster Jam World FinalsSM Championship?

Tom Meents:  It’s going to take a flawless performance by the crew, the truck, and myself.  I don’t plan on changing anything up from last year’s Monster Jam World Finals.  If we get everyone pulling in the same direction I don’t see anyone being able to stop us.

Monster Jam:   What can fans expect from Maximum Destruction at the Monster Jam World Finals?

Tom Meents:   Fans can expect to see Maximum Destruction going faster and harder than they have ever seen before.  We really want to win racing again this year but that’s not counting out freestyle because we are hungry for that trophy too.  Plan on seeing 100% from Maximum Destruction in both the racing and freestyle competitions!

Monster Jam:  What is your most memorable experience in the 2012 Monster Jam season?

Tom Meents: I feel as a whole, the emergence of team Maximum Destruction and being such heavy hitters has been the most memorable experience so far.  In every event this season Neil, Kreg and myself have been pushing it to the limit and we have been producing wins.  One event for me that stands out is my return to St. Louis where I had a stellar freestyle performance.

Monster Jam:   What is some advice for the new Monster Jam fans to the Monster Jam World Finals?

Tom Meents: You absolutely have to get on board with the Double Down.  Not only do you get to see me qualify on Friday night you will get a chance meet me one-on-one at the party in the pits.  Also, this year we are having the Young Guns Shootout that you will be able to watch.  It will be one action packed Monster Jam World Finals this year!
