Having emerged quickly as a driver who knows how to go fast and turn in spectacular runs, Jon Zimmer’s fast rise up the ranks in Monster Jam® really came into focus when he earned his first Monster Jam World Finals invitation in 2010 and right off the bat was among the fastest qualifiers on the sport’s most demanding race course. Zimmer grew up in small town USA with an early love for motorsports. His first entry into the world of motorsports was with dirt bikes and 4-wheelers when he was 11-years-old. As Zimmer got older he moved onto four wheel drive truck pulling and snow cross racing. Zimmer built a reputation not just as a talented racer, but as someone who always worked very hard on his own equipment. Zimmer says that he took that same attitude and work ethic with him into Monster Jam, explaining that he always has found it important to work as hard as he could on the Monster Jam trucks to progress himself. For Zimmer he has always dreamed to be where he is today. Zimmer’s career in Monster Jam trucks stared by crewing in 2000, and then he was able to really find his calling and fulfill his dreams when he began driving in 2005.
