You might be a redneck if.....

you go to Monster Jam Live! Honestly we didn't feel too rednecky as we saw many, many families with kiddos at the arena. One of the first great things about this event was a free Party in the Pits! If you went to Jack in the Box with your tickets you could get free pit passes. We got to the arena about 5:20 and waited for 10 minutes to get in. I am glad we got there early though because we were able to zip through all of the lines except El Toro Loco and Grave Digger. Even the wait for those two trucks/drivers was only about 10 minutes. The line behind us though stretched halfway around the arena. The kids were excited to meet each of the drivers. Little Man more than Munchkin I think.
 Munchkin and I got airbrush tattoos. They are Jack in the Box tattoos so obviously they are quite classy. ;) It was really fun to be able to see the trucks up close and see how big they actually are. I said the tires were as tall as Bobby but I was wrong. They were just a little bit shorter than my 5'4"ness.

 Once the pit party was over we made our way to our seats. We did not purchase expensive tickets so we were up kind of high. If you are a Preds fan and know about cell block 303...we were in 308. It was nice to be up high so we could see everything. The course had several obstacles the drivers had to tackle. The crowd favorite, Grave Digger, landed on his roof on his first jump. That was kind of a bummer but the other trucks did not disappoint. The trucks had to do wheelies, donuts, faced off with another truck, and freestyle. Freestyle was a crowd favorite but I think my favorite was wheelies. :)
 As the track was being reset the motorcross drivers put on a stunt show. This was Little Man's favorite part of the show. It was really impressive to see these guys fly off the end of the ramp and do crazy stunts!

 If you get a chance to go see Monster Jam Live, go! It was entertaining..Bobby likened it to Professional Wrestling..more show that actual racing but fun nonetheless. Don't worry if you feel like a redneck. Avoid the skull souvenir mugs and you will be fine. ;) You will get to see an entertaining show and be impressed by the magnitude of the trucks!
