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.

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.
