The Maple Leaf Monster Jam rocks and rolls into BC Place Stadium next Saturday, February 1 at 7 p.m.
And no monster jam truck driver will be more ready than Kelowna resident Cam McQueen, who will be at the wheel of the Northern Nightmare.
The 35-year-old says he is especially proud to pilot the Canadian themed, 1500-horsepower truck, with the 66-inch wheels. Northern Nightmare is covered with red maple leaves on a black background and sports a Canadian flag.
At the 2012 Monster Jam World Finals, McQueen and Northern Nightmare captured their first World Freestyle Championship in in Las Vegas. McQueen has enjoyed a lifelong love of motorsports. At age five, he began riding dirt bikes and started racing motocross at 11.
McQueen lives for the excitement: “I’ve been fortunate enough so far to have had a really great crew and teammates… we have a lot of fun on the road.”
In Vancouver, watch out for such famous trucks as the Grave Digger, driven by Chad Tingler, and Dragon’s Breath, driven by Scott Liddycoat, and a host of other awesome machines.
Diehard fans can enjoy the Party in the Pits pre-show from 2:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. Meet the drivers for autographs and photos. Show tickets and pit passes are available online at www.ticketmaster.ca.
