Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam is this weekend at the Cajundome and this afternoon, I had the pleasure of hanging out the driver and crew of the Advance Auto Parts monster truck GRINDER!

I got to hang out with driver John Seasock, while fans came in and took pictures of the truck, got autographs from Seasock and enjoyed free food and drinks. Of course, I took pictures while I was there and decided to do a faceoff between GRINDER and our very own Mothership.


Who do you think would win between GRINDER and THE MOTHERSHIP?

Also, I wanted to just not only take a picture with GRINDER, but get on the truck itself. Normally, fans are not allowed to get on the truck. But hey, I'm Tai! Just kidding! I got to climb up one of those massive tires and John Seasock took the picture for me!



He also snapped a picture of me climbing up the tire. It is not easy to scale one of these things (you can just tell by the horrific look on my face)!


After it was all said and done, I wanted a preview of GRINDER in action, since I have never seen the truck in person yet (GRINDER makes it's Lafayette debut this weekend). So, I got video of the truck driving off and it was the closest I've been to a monster truck while it was moving! It was loud!!

To see John Seasock and GRINDER in action, view the video below!

There are still great seats available for Monster Jam this Friday and Saturday night!
