Northern Nightmare: As Canadian As Maple Syrup

Monster Jam came to Hamilton and it was an automotive extravaganza that was a fun evening for the entire family. CFMU spoke with Cam McQueen from Calgary, Alberta who won the 2012 Monster Jam Freestyle Championship at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. McQueen gives tips on how to drive like a pro, why youth should consider investing their career ambitions into the entertainment sector and shared the defining moments of his career.

McQueen proudly drives the Northern Nightmare which was introduced to audiences on November 30, 2011, at Rogers Centre in Toronto. Canadians from coast to coast participated in an online contest to name the truck and in the end the Northern Nightmare is as Canadian as Maple Syrup. Here’s some statistics on the truck:

Engine: 540 CI Merlin
Horsepower: 1500
Transmission: Coan 2-Speed
Tires: 66” Terra
