From The New Orleans Advocate website:

When Candice Jolly started racing go-karts as a kid, she didn’t have many female role models in the competitive driving field.

Drivers were predominantly men, and her father heard from other dads that little Candice should be home playing with dolls.

But Jolly and her dad didn’t listen, and today, as one of 10 female Monster Jam drivers in a pool of 120 competitors, she’s gained a world following.

Jolly and 15 other drivers will perform at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome (New Orleans, LA) on Saturday Feb. 20, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $10. Before the show, fans can attend Party in the Pits on Saturday from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., when fans can get a close look at the trucks and meet their favorite drivers.

“It’s a male-dominated sport, by all means,” Jolly said. “But at least now there are 10 of us. The girls have been kicking butt this year, too. We’ve had more wins across the board for females than ever.”
