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. The crew worked hard, we got some luck here and there, and we did it!”
Tim Hall, team co-owner, added: “We had a great year … and we are already looking forward to next year. Our new 2013 RAMINATOR will be improved in several areas to make it even better. I can’t wait to get it on the track.
“But for now, we will finish off the year with a bunch of dealer visits at Ram dealerships around the country. I invite the fans to check us out on raminator.com and come see us at the dealerships.”
