It was definitely a weekend to remember participating in the RC Monster Jam World Finals in Orlando, Florida. The now annual event was organized and put on by RC enthusiasts as a showcase to 1000’s of fans and spectators during the pit party at the Monster Jam World Finals. The RC arena was built with attendance in mind with ample space to operate the vehicles while also offering great audience viewing areas and space for some social engagement and 1 on 1 time with guests.
The team met a lot of new fans, racers and fellow competitors which is something that always sticks out as a success. There is a lot of teamwork behind the scenes from Bari Musawwir, John Schultz, Eric Krush, Brad Pitt, Jamie Grund, Mike Eaton, Katie Eaton, Tad Goad and Clyde Delisle to make this event happen and a great amount of appreciation goes out to them. Wood obstacles which were painted and scaled to the actual items, with a solid dirt base packed and watered looked just like what was used inside Camping World Stadium. The track layout and overall flow worked like a charm and gave the competitors the real vibe of Monster Truck competition.
It was special to meet many of the new generation Monster Jam drivers, fans and mechanics and also a chance to bump into many of the original drivers and Icons. The cross-over interest from 1:1 to 1:10th was always apparent and as long as it had tires, wheels and a body, the energy is always the same. As all the drivers gathered to gossip, there was a common interest, everyone loved big trucks and on and off the track, the camaraderie was excellent.
