Monster Truck Tryouts
Of course they don’t just let anyone hop in a blown, lifted monster truck that puts out 1500 horsepower and let them drive it around a stadium packed with people. No, just like in other sports, monster truck drivers have to prove themselves and work their way up to the big leagues. This guy may have some more work to do before hitting the monster truck ranks. Apparently his friend doesn’t have much confidence in him either. Check it out.

If you were to meet Kid KJ – or Kaid Olsen-Weston, as his parents call him – his shy demeanor wouldn’t make you think he was the world’s youngest monster truck driver.

But the 7-year-old Kid KJ followed his father Tod Weston’s footsteps and started participating in motorsports at a young age. We spoke with Kaid and his father at the 2010 SEMA show, where they had his truck on display at Tod’s booth for Uncle Tod Motorsports. He owns and rides dirt bikes and ATVs, but since he was 6 years old he has also raced monster trucks – again, following in his father’s footsteps after Tod purchased the Gunslinger monster truck and now races under the name Black Knight.
