Ten questions for Top Truck Challenge 2013 competitor Jennifer Smith, driving a '68 Ford Bronco. Q What TTC event are you most looking forward to? A "I'm looking forward to the Mini Rubicon. I've had the most practice in the Mini, although I know it will be more difficult for TTC." Q What TTC are you no not looking forward to? A "The Hill Climb is my least favorite. Honestly I was OK with this event until my co-driver and another friend started telling me about how everyone rolls, and I have yet to roll so I'm a bit nervous." Q When in a tough spot are you more likely to throttle out or think it through? A "The first time I went crawling my husband's buddy told me 'When in doubt, gas her out,' however in most situations I will think it through." Q Are you making changes to your rig for TTC? A "Yes, we have decided to restore the Bronco to original condition. LAUGH." Q How is your spotter/co-driver training for TTC? A "Well, my co-driver is also my mechanic so he is getting the rig ready and he is getting some practice in most weekends at the OHV park." Q If you could go wheeling anywhere in the world, where would that be? A "The Grand Canyon. I think the donkey trails would be more fun in a 4x4!" Q What's playing on your iPod/CD player right now? A "Christian rock, some Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Pistol Annies, a little Johnny Cash, and some Kid Rock." Q What was the last movie you watched? A "The last movie I watched was The Bible mini-series on the History channel." Q Do you have an aversion to poison oak, wild boar, or submerged engines? A "I grew up around poison oak and I have never had a bad reacton to it, so not worried. Wild boar taste good when roasted in the ground and it makes the best sausage. As far as submerged engines, I guess even an engine needs a bath now and again!"    Q What's one thing people should know about you? A "I'm hard to forget and ya'll will hear me before ya see me."
