Life on the Road with Monster Jam

How did you get started competing in Monster Jam?
I started making my way into the sport by going to as many shows as possible and volunteering with many different teams. I met J.R. McNeal with Razin' Kane Monster Trucks, and he invited me to come test in one of his Monster Jam trucks. After that awesome experience, I came to a couple shows the team was a part of and helped out. JR hired me to be a full-time member of the team, and I have been loving it ever since!
