Raminator driver Mark Hall sure would have liked to break the 100mph mark. If you ever have been standing next to a Monster Truck you appreciate this achievement.
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 Ramand Mopar, we continue to add to our achievements and are honored to now be a Guinness World Records holder.”
