Tampa, Florida-- She grew up in Ocala. Now, she's back in what she calls her "hometown" of Tampa.

Debrah Miceli is better known as "Madusa". She drives a hot pink monster truck and is ready to perform this weekend in front of a packed stadium.

"Coming back to the hometown, you put a little bit more of an edge on," she said. "I don't take any crap. What the hell are rules? I go for it all."

The Madusa monster truck, like all of the other cars in Monster Jam, is about 10,000 pounds, runs at 1,500 horsepower and is nearly 15 feet tall. Madusa was clocked at 78 miles per hour in Las Vegas last year, but the name of the game is power with these trucks.

During the monster truck shows, the 66-inch tires crush junkyard, scrap metal cars as flat as pancakes. After those cars are run over, there is nothing left but a pile of shattered glass, nuts and bolts.

"You've got to respect these machines," said Miceli.

You can see the Monster Jam action this weekend at Raymond James Stadium.
