Mark Hall, driver of the Ram Truck-sponsored RAMINATOR monster truck, won the 31st annual 4 Wheel Jamboree Fall Nationals in Indianapolis on Sunday. Hall also claimed his 18th national championship title.
“It was a great finish to a fantastic season,” Hall said. “We have really had a terrific summer … winning seven of the 14 races of the series. When you add in the three wins that [teammate] Mat Dishman and RAMMUNITION had, it shows you how good our Hemi-powered Ram trucks were this year.
