Mopar Introduces ‘Mopar Muscle’: First New Monster Truck in More Than a Decade

From Mopar:

Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand, will be taking to the Monster Truck Racing Series arena with the new “Mopar Muscle” Ram monster truck beginning with the Monster Jam event in Detroit on Jan. 11.

The Mopar-sponsored machine joins the Hall Brothers Racing’s championship winning trucks “Raminator” and “Rammunition” for six Monster Jam events in 2014. The Ram Truck brand has proudly sponsored the team since 2002.

“We’re excited to have Mopar make its first foray into the world of monster trucks by joining the Ram brand in this popular and competitive exhibition series with a such a passionate and loyal following,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO – Mopar, Chrysler Group’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “So much of what Mopar does is applicable to the general consumer, but occasionally we like to show just how capable our brand is of really extreme performance. This is a great and fun opportunity for us to do that with Mopar Muscle and the Hall Brothers.”

Mopar Muscle is the first Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) monster truck to be introduced into the Monster Jam series in more than a decade. Monster Jam is the premier monster truck racing event series, with a 14-race schedule that features traditional bracket racing and a freestyle competition.

Standing an imposing 10 feet high and weighing 10,300 pounds, Mopar’s 2000-horsepower monster truck is based on a 2014 Ram Heavy Duty truck. It is powered by a 565 cubic inch supercharged version of the iconic Gen II 426 HEMI® engine, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2014. Mopar Muscle will sport a special orange 50th anniversary HEMI logo, launching a year-long tribute by Mopar to commemorate the introduction of the engine that has since seen much success and strongly impacted both the motorsport and automotive industries.

“We are very proud of our new Mopar Muscle Ram monster truck,” said Tim Hall owner and crew chief for the Champaign, Ill.-based team. “It looks really fantastic, and I can’t wait to see it run. Mopar has a long and storied history of winning across many forms of racing, so we intend on helping to make their entry into monster truck racing just as successful.”

Hall Brothers Racing is no stranger to success. Driver Mark Hall has garnered eight “Driver of the Year” honors at the helm of Raminator, which is the 2013 winner of the coveted “Truck of the Year” award, claiming its seventh title since 2002. Along with Rammunition, driven by Mat Dishman, the team boasts a total of 20 season point championships.

Hoping to contribute to that success, Mike Miller will take the wheel of Mopar Muscle for the six events it will participate in this season.

“The Mopar Muscle Ram is a fantastic ride, and I am really looking forward to competing with it,” said Miller who has been with the team since 2011. “The iconic HEMI engine has won a lot of races across many categories in motorsports, and I intend to add to that list.

“On a personal level, not only have I been passionate about monster trucks since my childhood, but I am really honored to fly the Mopar banner. If you need any indication of how much I love the brand, my own son is named Hemi.”

Partnering with the Hall Brothers and extending Mopar’s reach into monster trucks felt like a perfect fit to Tricia Hecker, Marketing Director – Mopar, who sees the benefits of participating in a series that appeals to an audience with similar passion and core values as the brand.

“It wasn’t just the display of power and performance that made this a good fit for Mopar, but the environment is just so family-oriented,” said Hecker, who brings her own sons to Monster truck events. “With such a strong youth following, we see this as a fantastic way to have a new generation of fans grow up with the Mopar name.”

In anticipation of the Mopar Muscle’s first appearance on track, fans will be able to get their first close-up look at the new truck during Monster Jam’s “Party in the Pits” from 2:00-5:00 p.m. ET, Jan. 11 at Ford Field. The $10 pre-show experience gives aficionados access to the racetrack, the opportunity to meet Hall Brothers Racing drivers Mike Miller and Mark Hall, collect autographs, take photos, and explore the obstacles competitors jump over and eventually destroy.

Mopar Muscle will compete at the following events during the 2014 season:
• January 11 – Monster Jam in Detroit, Mich.
• February 22 – Monster Jam in Arlington, Texas
• May 16-18 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Lima, Ohio
• June 21-22 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Springfield, Mo.
• July 11-13 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Bloomsburg, Pa.
• September 19-21 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Indianapolis, Ind.

For Mopar and Ram Truck fans who can’t make it to Monster Jam® events in person, FOX Sports 1 and FOX Sports 2 will begin telecasting the competition this January. Check local listings for broadcast times.

Monster truck driver charged with manslaughter after off-road event

Monster truck driver charged with manslaughter after off-road event

Within the past year, the safety of fans at motorsports events has been a hot topic among everyone involved, from spectators to executives. However, the same regulations don’t always apply to all countries.

Last week at a monster truck event in Mexico, 51-year-old Velazquez Samaniego lost control of his vehicle and struck dozens of people in the crowd. Nine people were killed and several were injured.

Since the incident, Velazquez has been charged with manslaughter. It was reported in multiple stories online that Velazquez claims he was knocked on the head during the event and left unconscious right before he went drove the crowd.

VIDEO: Bad Habit Monster Truck jumps into the record books

Bad Habit Monster Truck jumps into the record books

From KMC:

COLUMBUS, Penn. – The Bad Habit Monster Truck crushed the distance jump world record with a 237-foot, 6-inch jump at the Cornfield 500. KMC Wheels today releases its exclusive online video of the stunt.

Driver Joe Sylvester topped 85-mph in his 10,000 pound monster truck to launch into the record books September 1. He crushed the previous distance record by 23 feet.

Although monster trucks regularly get air during shows, this jump attempt was unique, calling for high speeds and enough height to clear a three-story building.

“Nobody ever hits a jump going that fast in a monster truck. In a stadium format, you’re not going even half the speed I was doing for the record jump,” said Sylvester. “The current land-speed record in a monster truck is only 86 mph.”

Before climbing into the enormous truck on September 1, Sylvester pledged to keep trying until “we break the record, or break the truck.” It took weeks of preparation and careful planning but the driver was able to claim the record on his first try. The jump was a massive air that that saw the Bad Habit truck over-rotate and come down hard on its front wheels — a close call, but Sylvester was able to save the landing.

“The level of risk is about as high as you can go in a monster truck. I can’t really think of anything else that would be higher risk than that. If you crash at that speed and from that height it’s pretty devastating,” said Sylvester.

Sylvester, who first claimed the record in 2010 with a 208-foot jump, says he expects this distance jump achievement to stand for a long time.

“It’s not a matter of the difficulty,” says Sylvester. “It’s if they’ve got the balls to hit a jump at 85 miles per hour, and as far as I know there’s not anybody ready to step up and take that kind of a chance yet.”

Previous distance jump record setters Travis Pastrana, Robbie Maddison and Tanner Foust chimed in before the stunt to offer their support to driver Sylvester.

“I’ve driven a monster truck and it’s the most violent thing you’ve ever done,” said Pastrana, who landed a 269-ft rally car jump off the Long Beach Pier in 2009.

“Holy s**t, that is amazing,” said Robbie Maddison, who jumped a dirt bike 378-ft, nine-inches in 2012.

“That guy’s still alive?” asked Foust, who flew a trophy truck 332-ft at an IndyCar stunt in 2011.

Sylvester is the owner/operator of the Bad Habit monster truck in the Monster Jam series, is the newly crowned Young Guns World Champion. He has an impressive 55 race wins, 12 final round victories, and an outstanding 62 total freestyle wins within seven years of monster truck competition.

The new record was set following criteria determined by the official Guinness World Records guidelines. The Guinness organization is undertaking verification procedures and is expected to officially confirm the world record in the coming weeks.
