life on the road

  • What is the best and worst thing about being on the road every weekend with Monster Jam?
    The best is being able to drive and compete with the best drivers in the industry. The worst part is having to stay up for several days and nights in a row just to make the next show.

    I don’t have any free time, it’s all about the trucks to keep them well maintained.

    My cell phone because we are on the road for months at a time and it’s the only way to keep in contact with friends and family back at home.
  • What is your favorite city to travel to? Why?
    I would say anywhere in Florida because the stadiums are open ceiling and the time of year we compete, it’s cold everywhere else!
