A muddy day at Monster Jam University

Learning how to drive a 12,000 pound monster truck in the best way possible-- in the mud.

My day at Monster Jam University started out with a very clean truck.

It ended with a truck covered in mud from top to bottom.

In between I got all four wheels off the ground.

OK, I rolled the truck after an enthusiastic donut.

And here's what the donut looked like from the inside. I may have gotten just a bit dizzy.

Monster trucks have rear steering, controlled by a switch with a driver's right hand.

No keys needed here -- just a flip of the switch.

The highlight of the day was a big ol' Monster Jam jump.
