Justin Fitzgerald of Minnesota, winner of the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World FinalsSM VIP Experience of a Lifetime Sweepstakes, got to experience just that, the experience of a lifetime today.
Over 30,000 fans signed up for the contest on MonsterJam.com, but Justin was the lucky winner randomly selected to come to Las Vegas for the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Finals with his choice of a guest. His prize also included meeting Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Champions, Tom Meents and Cam McQueen, drive a Monster Jam truck, attend Thursday practice, two Double Down packages, event tickets to the Saturday March 23rd event, and an invitation for 2 to the Monster Jam World Finals Awards Ceremony.
Justin, and his lifelong friend, Derek; arrived at Sam Boyd Stadium this morning excited for what was in store for them. After getting to watch the private practice yesterday, Justin would be getting to drive a Monster Jam truck for the very first time! While Justin got suited up, Derek kept busy meeting and getting autographs from several of the Monster Jam stars.
After a few minutes of tips and insight from Max-DSM driver, Tom Meents (“Go fast,” Tom recommend as he gestured toward the driving area) and Northern NightmareSM driver, Cam McQueen (“This was the first place I ever drove a Monster Jam truck, so you never know where it might lead!”) it was finally time for Justin to fire up Advance Auto Parts GrinderSM to feel what 1500 horsepower is like. Justin drove the truck like he was a professional! Making sure to hit the throttle and get a full once-in-a-lifetime experience, Justin hit the ramps to get an idea of what being a Monster Jam driver is all about.
Once he was finished, he made his way back to Derek who was ready to show him the video on his cell phone. Justin and Derek joked and laughed about how they couldn’t believe they had won the VIP Experience of a Lifetime Sweepstakes, and even more thrilled that Justin had been able to get behind the wheel of Advance Auto Parts Grinder. As Justin headed out for the day, ready for Double Down action tomorrow, he just had one thing to say – “I tell you what man, that was a lot of POWER! I can’t wait for tomorrow!”
