So, give us some history on Tehvyn Goodwin:
Tehvyn Goodwin: I started building four-wheel drive rigs with my Dad when I was about ten. We entered a rock crawling building world-wide competition in Hollister Hills, CA called Top Truck Challenge. Only ten people are voted in throughout the world and we were one of the lucky ones. I went on a ride with Bill Payne in his monster truck and that changed my life and made me want to become a monster truck driver.

How did you get started competing in Monster Truck racing?

 Tehvyn Goodwin: Through Ed Miller. Ed started working with Bill and recommended me to come work for the team so I jumped at the chance. I also had to one up my Dad by being a monster truck driver instead of a rock buggy driver.

What do you enjoy doing while on the road the most?
 Tehvyn Goodwin: Talking to all the younger kids at the show and seeing how excited they are.

What do you do with your free time?

What is your greatest memory as a Monster Truck driver?
 Tehvyn Goodwin: The greatest memory I have currently is my very first introduction in the California Kid. I had the biggest grin on my face.

Do you have any pre-show rituals that you run though?

If you were not competing what career path would you follow?
