We Be Monster Jammin!

Monster Jam was in the Twin Cities last Saturday and I had the chance to talk to the driver (and current points leader) of Dragon, Dustin Brown.

First things first, he showed me his truck!

Dustin talked about the process of transforming USBank Stadium from a football field into a Monster Jam track. The dirt (over 200 truckloads) for each stadium is actually stored in that city and the process only takes a couple of days.

Dustin also showed me the most popular and oldest truck of them all- Grave Digger!

Getting to stand on Grave Digger was pretty cool, but I was bummed that unlike Conan I didn't get the chance to drive one.

Dustin said that although all of the drivers are friends at the end of the day, when it comes to competing they come to win. Here are some of the highlights from the event.
