We know that you're itching to know a little more about our 2013 Top Truck Challenge Competitors so we decided to ask them a few questions to give you a better idea of who they are and why they've decided to attempt the ultimate off road torture test! Find out why Jennifer Smith has decided to compete in Top Truck Challenge 2013!

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."
