Mom, Mormon, monster truck driver

When Nicole Jardin Johnson, mother of two boys, takes a drive, it's not a minivan she's climbing into, but a 10,000-pound, 1,475-horsepower, 12-foot tall, red Herculean monster truck dubbed "Tasmanian Devil."

Johnson is a rock-crawler-turned-monster-truck-driver. Acclaimed as the rookie and female with the most monster truck competition titles in a single season, Johnson achieved nine wins in 2011, her debut year. She was subsequently named the Rising Star Driver at the 2011 Monster Jam awards ceremony and most recently earned second place at the Young Guns Shootout at the Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam World Finals XIII in March 2012.
