Nicole Johnson will be behind the wheel of Scooby Doo, a truck that despite it’s kid-like name weighs a whopping 10-thousand pounds and can do short bursts at 100 miles an hour.

“It is totally hard to drive! I think the most difficult part of being a driver is the limited visibility. With our helmets blocking our visibility and our head and neck restraints, holding our neck in so tight I can’t move a quarter inch in any direction,” Johnson told CBS4’s Natalia Zea.

” I think it’s like being in a cartoon when we’re driving these trucks. It is so much fun. When we get air and sometimes we cartwheel and end up crashing it feels exactly like being in a cartoon,” added Johnson.

Johnson decided being a monster truck driver was her calling after meeting a pioneering driver about five years ago. She said Monster Jam, which kicks off its tour Saturday in South Florida, is exhilarating.

“This show in Miami is gonna be fantastic. We’re gonna have racing and freestyle and a pit party,” said Johnson.

And she says it’s geared toward the youngest fans.

“This is going to be the best way to kick off back to school and wrap up the holidays. We are going to be tearing it up here,” said Johnson.

She suggests you bring earplugs, especially for the little ones.

Monster Jam is Saturday night  at Sunlife Stadium. Doors open at 5 and the show starts at 7. For more details click here: www.monsterjam.com.
