Raminator makes Guiness World Record

by David Zatz on

Monster truck Raminator has broken the Guinness World Records® record for the “Fastest Speed for a Monster Truck” at Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas. With a new record speed of 99.10 miles per hour (mph), Raminator and driver Mark Hall secured the title at 8:44 a.m. (CT), breaking the previous record of 96.8 mph.

The fastest growing truck brand in America, Ram sponsors trucks including the 2014 Monster Truck Nationals Champion Raminator, Rammunition, and the 2014-launched Mopar Muscle. This line of monster trucks are owned and operated by the Illinois-based Hall Brothers Racing Team, which has been sponsored by Chrysler since 2002.

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.

Throughout the year, the Ram monster trucks compete in races and freestyle events and tour the country, making appearances at dealerships. For more photos, see our Hall Brothers monster truck page.
