Lucinda’s Ochs Bringing Soldier Fortune Black Ops Monster Jam Truck to Pittsburgh in February
Ochs and the Fortune Black Ops truck will be part of the Monster Jam shows at PPG Paints Arena. There is a 7 p.m. show Feb. 9, a 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. show Feb. 10 and a 1 p.m. show Feb. 11. The two 1 p.m. shows will have a pit party from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
Ochs, who spent 10 ½ years in the army as an Apache helicopter mechanic and served four combat tours – Iraq twice, Afghanistan and a multi-national operation in Kuwait – has been driving for Monster Jam since 2016.
A win over the famed Grave Digger is already part of Ochs’ resume, and the Crown native and North Clarion graduate told exploreClarion in April 2017 that he drives Soldier Fortune Black Ops as a way to pay tribute to the military and military families.
“I want to put on a great show to all military and their families,” Ochs said in April. “That’s what my truck is all about.”
Scheduled to join Ochs and the Soldier Fortune Black Ops truck for the Pittsburgh shows are El Toro Loco driven by Kayla Blood, Grave Digger driven by Tyler Menninga, Max-D driven by Colton Eichelberger, Megalodon driven by Buddy Tompkins, Monster Mutt Rottweiler driven by Jack Brown, Scooby-Doo driven by Myranda Cozad and Zombie driven by Bari Musawwir.
Ochs, a 2004 graduate of North Clarion High School, currently resides in Lucinda.
