Last weekend we attended our third Monster Jam event. Monster Jam is a fun night out and this year we brought our friends Sarah and Damon along for the evening. Each time we attend Monster Jam it is a little different. There is always the head-to-head racing and everyone’s favorite the freestyle. This year’s January 16th Tampa show included a donut competition by the drivers who didn’t make it into the head-to-head racing semi-finals and there were races between mega trucks. The mega trucks look like jacked up regular street trucks or dune buggies. I love that you never know what to expect in a Monster Jam show.
Also, in case you don’t know, there are multiple Monster Jam tours and multiples of some of the trucks. You need to figure out which driver is driving which truck at the show you are going to. My favorite trucks are El Toro Loco, the yellow one driven by Becky McDonough and Max-D driven by Tom Meents. I was happy to find out that both of my favorite truck/driver combinations were going to be at the show we went to.
During the donut competition, my girl Becky McDonough showed the boys how she gets things done. Click over to see my Instagram video of her doing donuts. There are other photos and videos of the even on my Instagram page as well. My guy Max-D held the lead in the freestyle competition most of the night, even though he flipped before he got to try his well-know backflip 🙁 Unfortunately, at the end of the night, Grave Digger bested Max-D’s freestyle score by 1 point!
