Nicole Johnson would spend her weekends and summers with her dad bent under the hood of a car in Hawaii. This began an early passion for cars and motivated her to become a monster truck driver.
“Now, jumping huge is really hard to describe. There’s no sensation like it. I’m driving a 12-foot Scooby-Doo truck, and I’m flying through the air. I feel like a superhero in a cartoon,” Johnson told Vice.
She’s more than just a driver, though. Johnson is also a wife and a mom. Johnson and her husband, Frank, decided from the beginning that “our approach was going to be wholesome and family oriented. We were always going to be on time, and our clothes and vehicles would be clean whenever we showed up to [a competition]. I wanted to set a good example as a member of the Church,” Johson told BYU Magazine.
