Mahon’s journey leads her, and Scooby, to Myrtle Beach Monster Jam

In 2010, Brianna Mahon’s 15-year journey to the professional ranks of motocross came to fruition, only to be derailed by a devastating hand injury – she hasn’t competed since.

Years later, Mahon has found a new calling.

Competing on the Monster Jam circuit, the 24-year-old is coming off two wins at her first asphalt event in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Mahon – the 2015 Monster Jam rookie of the year – will be behind the wheel of the easy-to-spot Scooby Doo monster truck during the first-ever Monster Jam event at Myrtle Beach Speedway on Thursday and Friday, too.

And while motocross was her first walk of life, Mahon – a Sullivan, Ill. native – has enjoyed getting behind the wheel of the 12-foot tall, 10,000-plus-pound machines.
