Today on Rides with Jay Thomas we’re ramping things up...and we mean way up.

Jay catches up with Everett Jasmer, founder and owner of the USA-1 monster truck racing team. Jay and Everett talk through the history of one of the last remaining original USA-1 trucks and also take a look at another truck that helped shape monster truck racing as we know it today.

On Rides, if it’s cool, it has a story and you can drive it, it can be on the show.

"Rides" is hosted by radio personality, Minnesota native and North Dakota resident Jay Thomas. The show features cool cars or just about anything with an engine. Know of a ride in the region that Jay's just got to see? Email him at
