Welcome back to The Dad Central Show! In today’s episode, we have a special guest joining us – the talented Bryce Kenny, a professional Monster Jam driver and author. Bryce takes us on a journey through his experience as a father, sharing heartfelt insights and valuable lessons along the way.
In the conversation Bryce delves into the idea that many fathers are fatherly to others but not always to their own children. He opens up about wanting his kids to look up to him as a leader and a source of inspiration, rallying them to chase their dreams.
Bryce reveals his own struggles with imposter syndrome when he became a dad. He shares how the concept of “fake it till you make it,” helped him at first, but he wanted more. He now goes by the saying, “Believe it till you become it,” inspiring himself and others to believe in their dreams and the goals they want to achieve in their life and career.
Our conversation takes an interesting turn as Bryce challenges the notion of sacrificing personal dreams for the sake of parenthood. He shares a moving story about a friend who gave up his career, but Bryce counters that he wants his children to witness him pursuing his dreams and learn from the pain and growth that come with it.
Prepare to be touched as Bryce recounts a heartwarming conversation he had with his daughter, who expressed her desire for him to continue driving as Mohawk Warrior in Monster Jam. He believes that his daughter sees his growth as a father and recognizes the importance of nurturing relationships, imperfections and all.
Bryce also reflects on his relationship with his grandfather and father, who have had a significant impact on his life. He sheds light on the valuable life lessons and wisdom he learned from his late grandfather, which inspired him to write his book, “Geared for Life.”
Tune in as Bryce Kenny shares his journey of discovering his purpose through Monster Jam and how it influenced his identity as a father. With a mix of inspiration, wisdom, and laughter, this episode is packed with valuable takeaways for all dads out there.
About Bryce Kenny:
Growing up, Bryce’s passion was in Top Fuel dragracing, traveling the country with his grandfather competing in a race car capable of 300mph in just 4 seconds! Those miles traveled in the rig with his grandfather, Doc Sipple, would prove to be the mentorship that would equip Bryce with the passion and skill sets to fulfill his purpose – to use the platform of motorsports to change people’s lives. Bryce believes that while there are no secret formulas to life, there are gears that we must learn to shift in and out of at the right time. These gears are our foundational beliefs that guide the actions we take towards living the life we’ve always dreamed of. Gears like being driven by purpose, failing faster, and becoming built for others all require a decision in the midst of life’s toughest challenges to make that shift in order to get unstuck, find momentum, and start thriving again.
Life requires us to shift gears constantly, and Bryce is passionate about helping others find that next gear they never knew they had.
Bryce is now a Professional Monster Jam driver as the Great Clips Mohawk Warrior, setting a Guinness World Record for the fastest speed in a monster truck in 2021 and being the first driver in the sport’s history to hit 100mph. Getting his start in 2016, Kenny recorded his first Freestyle win in his first year. Kenny earned the 2019 Save of the Year and 2021 Outreach Award. The driver of the Great Clips Mohawk Warrior has also played a role in Monster Jam TV coverage. His ability to represent brands and strategic partners like Great Clips, build family-friendly fan bases, and attain coveted awards in the sport makes Bryce a bright star in Monster Jam!
