The World’s First Monster Truck Kids Team

The World’s First Monster Truck Kids Team


COMM: This is Team Kid KJ – the world’s
first ever monster trucks team made up entirely of pre-teens and teenagers. COMM: Formed in 2010, the team is the brainchild
of owner and founder Tod Weston and is named after his son, KJ, who was the first member
of the team at the tender age of five-and-a-half. WOMAN: Hey, KJ you got a minute for an interview?
Your fans want to know. KJ WESTON: So, it was lot of fun being able
to do all the jumps for you guys. But what happened is I was little unaligned with the
jumps. So, I came down sideways and it was the drive shaft, which went straight out,
and hopefully we’ll have it fixed for next year. WOMAN: Were those jumps were pretty exciting
though? You cut a lot of air. KJ WESTON: Yeah they were a lot of fun. COMM: Since then the team has gone from strength
to strength and now boasts more than 20 full-time members across the United States. Members
of the team as young as 6 years old are taught the essentials
of driving in monster trucks. And only the most talented and mature drivers are considered
for a place in the team. Another requirement of the team’s members is that the kids have
to have an average of more A grades than Bs in their score to keep their place. Collectively,
Team Kid KJ has more than 10 monster trucks worth more than 3.5 million dollars and on
average it spends 150,000 dollars a year to maintain their fleet of trucks. Capable of
reaching speeds of up to 70 miles per hour, the smaller more specialised monster trucks
can keep up with their larger counterparts but for the sake of safety are limited to
35 miles per hour during shows. Despite their smaller size trucks, these mini marvels are
proving they can keep up and perform at more than 60 shows a year.
