Monster Jam at Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore!

2016MJ_32

Monster Jam landed with a bang at Baltimore’s Royal Farms Arena this past weekend. We watched Zombie, Grave Digger, Max D, Scooby Doo, Monster Mutts Dalmation and Rottweiler, and NEA battle it out in head to head and freestyle competitions. There were a lot of changes to the Monster Jam format. Check out my write-up and huge gallery of awesome pics, below.

Interview with Illuminator’s Jay Snyder

Today I got to chat with Bethesda based monster truck driver Jay Snyder. My son and I first got to witness his truck Illuminator at the Montgomery County Fair three years ago (see video below), and have been trying to keep up ever since. Next weekend at Monster Jam in DC, Illuminator will be competing against Crushstation, Man of Steel, Iron Outlaw, Bounty Hunter, and of course, Grave Digger. I wanted to ask Jay a few questions about driving a monster truck, and he delivered. Check it out.

DIY Monster Truck Display

Grave Digger on display
My son and I love our Hot Wheels Monster Jam Monster trucks… we have a couple of the playsets, and lots and lots of trucks. We race them down the Showdown ramp, we spin donuts in the Crash Arena, and much to my wife’s chagrin, we leave them all over the house.

Anyway, I decided to thin my son’s stable a little and take one or two to work. Yes, I look silly with Monster Trucks on my desk. So I decided to change the scenario and make a handsome backdrop display to improve their appearance in my workplace. And now you can too! Click below to get the PDF and see more pics.

Free DIY Wrecker Cars for your Monster Trucks

img_9051
If you watched my video about the Hot Wheels Monster Jam playsets, you’ll know that I was a little disappointed with the wrecker cars (or victim cars) that are included with the sets. Yeah they look crushed and beat up, but why can’t we get some soft rubber or cheapo plastic cars that would physically crush under the Monster Jam trucks? Perhaps its cost or safety, either way I took matters into my own hands, and produced this PDF of wrecker cars you can quickly print out and assemble (as many times as you want) for your Monster Trucks to run over. Check it out below!

Hot Wheels’ Monster Jam

Earlier this summer I took my 3 year old son to see his (our) first monster truck rally at the county fairgrounds. Nothing fancy, these were mainly local guys crushing cars and doing donuts. It was very awesome. (Check out my five minute video podcast, or go all the way to the bottom of the page)

img_8541So I bought a couple of the Hot Wheels Monster Jam monster trucks for him to play with, and we got hooked. Read my review and tons of pics, below.
