“I Lost My Hero Today 💔,” Meents said in a Facebook post. “My Dad was the greatest Dad that ever lived ! He pushed me to always do better and always had my back no matter how tough the road was. Thanks for everything you ever did for me Pops you will always be the best ! No need for sympathy or sorrow we had it the best 🏆.”

It is not clear if Meents will need time away from Monster Jam as he deals with this tragedy in his family. It is not clear, if he needs time away, how long he will be away from the sport.

Meents is scheduled to appear at U.S. Bank Stadium for two shows this weekend in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The first show is on Saturday, February 18th at 7 pm local time.

After Saturday’s show, the same teams will take part in a second show at U.S. Bank Stadium. The Sunday show will begin at 3 pm local time.

According to the website, the event is subject to change. The Maximum Destruction Monster Truck may already be on the property.

With it being so close to the event, Meents may head home to be with his family if he had not already left for Minnesota.

Being that Meents is a legend in Monster Jam, Feld Entertainment will likely give him enough time if he is not able to compete this weekend.
