Crews are putting the final touches on the track for Saturday night's Monster Jam event. This is the second show in Tampa in two weeks and this time a local favorite will be getting a lot of attention.
"This is my home town. Tampa baby. So they know when Madusa comes into town. You know when I come rolling into town or roaring into town..I got this title...they call me queen of carnage."
Debrah Miceli, known as Madusa, is a former wrestler turned monster truck driver.
And wherever she goes....little girls and women are drawn to her and her pink truck.
"It just tears your heart when they say 'oh my gosh Madusa, I want to be just like you' when they are coming through the autograph line and the tears start coming and I got to be this macho girl and I'm like, oh that's so cute."
And when it comes to competing against the guys....Madusa has proven herself with two world championships.
"When you can beat Dennis Anderson at the world finals I mean now that is like wow....and you can never take that away you know it's just I don't know if that will ever be done again."
Madusa says she wants to see her fans cheer her on as she tries to get a win in Saturday night's show.
"I want to see all my little pink role models out there all dressed up in pink all the dudes and by the way guys look good in pink and I just want you guys to sit and scream and scream and wear your pink and root on for your home town girl."
