Ever want to drive a monster truck? How about the next best thing: A ride along with Gas Monkey Garage driver B.J. Johnson.
We were at AT&T Stadium this afternoon for a special sneak preview as Monster Jam drivers ran through a practice round before tomorrow's showdown, and Johnson allowed us to strap a Go-Pro camera for a look from his P.O.V. Johnson drives the 12,000 pound muscle car designed and sponsored by Dallas' own Richard Rawlings. Was it hard to convince him to let us snoop on his afternoon spin? Nah.
All it took was "pretty please" and about an entire roll of red duct tape to make sure the camera made it back un-crunched.
Come along for the ride:
Don't think you "get" Monster Jam? Johnson says just give it a try, and you'll probably be back. We spoke with him earlier this week and learned a lot as he and his crew prepped at Gas Monkey Garage.
