ABOUT MARK

 

  • What are some of your interests/hobbies/favorite pastimes?
    I enjoy a lot of different sports and I try to play guitar regularly.
  • Who are your role models?
    My mom and dad.
  • Do you have any ‘pre-show’ rituals you run through?
    I try to do everything the exact same way every show. Everything from how I climb into the truck to how I put on my safety gear.
  • What’s something a lot of people don’t know about you?
    Most people know that when I’m not driving a Monster Jam truck, that I’m a welder and fabricator at Hall Brothers Racing. But, they don’t know some of the stuff I make. I weld and make a lot of the normal stuff. For whatever reason, I think driveshafts are really cool. So I make a lot of those and even make some for other Monster Jam trucks.
  • What is your favorite memory on or off the racetrack?
    The last race my dad got to see me run before he passed away. We were fortunate enough to win that night. It was a fun special night.

    My family and friends.

    It’s hard to pick just one. I like them all.
