Out and About: Hanging out with the Monster Jam Monster Trucks in Orlando

This weekend, Monster Jam closed out the Citrus Bowl’s run of shows with a near-capacity crowd. On January 29, the Citrus Bowl will be torn down to make room for a new stadium.

The day before Monster Jam, several of the popular monster trucks made appearances around town, and we caught up with two of them.

At the Metro PCS, I, along with our family writer Carol and her two kids, stopped by the Metro PCS on Sand Lake Rd by the Florida Mall, where we met up with driver Rod Schmidt and his truck, Monster Mutt Rottweiler.

Then we beat the start of rush hour traffic to meet up with driver Bryan Wright and his truck, Stone Crusher, at Tropical Ford on S. Orange Blossom Trail.

It was cool to see the trucks up close and get a chance to talk to the drivers. Poor Rod was headed back to Iowa and its sub-zero weather after the Monster Jam show.

Hopefully Monster Jam will return to Orlando next year. Did you get a chance to see it this year?
