Monster Jam FS1 Championship Series

Following the success of last year’s series, Monster Jam is returning the FS1 Championship Series for 2016.

This year’s series will feature many of the same places and drivers, but a few new additions to the competition could make things very interesting for the next few months. [Read More …]

Monster Profile: Lee O’Donnell

Lee O'Donnell - Iron Man - Monster Profile

Lee O’Donnell is an accomplished off-road racer who is known for being able to drive almost anything with an engine, specializing in short-course off-road racing, and now monster trucks. O’Donnell made his debut in 2001, took a break to go back to off-road racing, then returned as a “super sub” of sorts, winning a big race in Atlanta filling in for Linsey Weenk in Blue Thunder. After several successful fill-in roles, Lee was back to driving monster trucks. He is also known for his colorful personality and open, honest, and humorous interviews. After bouncing around to several teams in the industry to begin his career, Lee has settled into the role of the main driver for the Iron Man truck. Josh Rhodes and Ed Hoormann caught up with Lee in St. Louis, Missouri before the show to get his thoughts on a wide variety of subjects, including the Monster Jam World Finals. We thank Lee and Brenda O’Donnell for their time. [Read More …]
