Who Are the Female Monster Truck Drivers?

The thrill of a roaring engine, the power of a massive vehicle, and the sheer skill it takes to drive one – these are the elements that make monster truck driving an exciting sport. While it is historically a male-dominated activity, there is a growing number of female drivers taking on the challenge.

Female Monster Truck Drivers

Women have been involved in motorsports for decades and female participation in monster truck driving has been increasing. Women such as Rosalee Ramer, Lisa Collier, and Madusa McQueen have been competing in Monster Jam since the 1990s. In recent years, more women have stepped up to take on monster truck driving as their chosen profession.

The most well-known female monster truck driver today is Elana Scheer. As an experienced off-road racer, she was selected to drive for Team Hot Wheels in 2011 and 2012. She has since gone on to become the first female driver for FELD Motorsports’ Monster Jam tour – an impressive feat considering the field is composed almost entirely of male drivers.

Elana has inspired many other women to pursue monster truck driving as a career or hobby. Female drivers such as Jamie Little, Kayla Blood, and Autumn Jones have all made waves in this male-dominated arena with their skill and determination. They are joined by dozens more who are proving that monster truck driving can be enjoyed by both men and women alike.

Monster truck driving may still be a predominantly male sport but there are an increasing number of female drivers who are showing that they too can master this exciting activity. Women such as Elana Scheer have paved the way for others to find success on this thrilling motorsport circuit and continue to inspire more women to take on this challenge every day.
