LINCOLN, Neb. -- Tristen Allen received Monster Jam tickets for his sixth birthday in January. The video of him reacting to the surprise went viral, and the Monster Jam tour manager said he wanted to do more.
"We fell in love with the little guy...love our little fans. It was a great opportunity for us to bring him in here and let him live his dream by seeing these trucks in action and meeting our drivers," Mike Kravek said.
The Allen family lives in South Dakota, so it was an eight hour drive to Lincoln. They arrived in the capital city around 4 a.m. Friday to beat the snow in South Dakota. When they arrived at Pinnacle Bank Arena, Tristen was told they were only picking up tickets for Saturday. Little did he know, he was going to have his private Monster Jam show and receive tickets for Friday night, too.
Tristen watched drivers practice. Then, he got to meet those drivers and climb into trucks -- including his favorite, Grave Digger.
Tristen's mom Holly Allen said, "I'm excited for him...so excited."
If you would like to go to Monster Jam at Pinnacle Bank Arena, there are still two shows tomorrow. Tickets start at $15. You can find more information in the link above.
