Long before he got a chance to get into the seat, Cole Venard had established himself in the world of Monster Jam. The long-time crew member started competing as a driver in 2015 when he filled in for Adam Anderson in Orlando. Venard raced at Ocala that year, which led to a full-time position driving for Team Grave Digger the following year. He won his tour championship in his first season and backed it up by winning again in 2017. Venard competes with a prosthetic leg, serving as an inspiration for fans around the globe. He was the 2022 Stadium Freestyle Award winner.
