As the fastest growing truck brand in America, the Ram Truck brand is a long time sponsor of the Fastest Monster Truck, the Raminator. The Ram-sponsored monster truck lineup includes the 2014 Monster Truck Nationals Champion Raminator and Rammunition, sponsored since 2002. In 2014, Mopar also introduced Mopar Muscle; the monster truck it sponsors. The entire line of monster trucks are owned and operated by the Hall Brothers Racing Team based out of Champaign, Ill. Raminator has been named Monster Truck Racing Association’s (MTRA) “Truck of the Year” a record eight times, while Mark Hall, driver of Raminator, has been named MTRA “Driver of the Year” nine times since 1996, and Crew Chief Tim Hall has been named MTRA “Mechanic of the Year” five times since 2006.
“Taking on the challenge of breaking a world record has been an experience we will never forget,” said Hall Brothers Racing President and Crew Chief, Tim Hall. “With the support of Ram and Mopar, we continue to add to our achievements and are honored to now be a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS holder.”
Ram Trucks chose Circuit of The Americas, a multi-purpose facility and 3.4 mile race track situated on 1000-acre site in southeast Austin, as the site for this attempt at the record. Throughout the year, the Ram monster trucks compete in races and freestyle events and tour the country, making appearances at dealerships to offer ride-alongs and car-crushing spectacles for hundreds of thousands of fans of all ages.
