Cleatus Monster Truck Commemorates New Fox Sports 1 Channel

Controversial Robot Mascot Commemorated with Monster Truck

Edward A. SanchezJan 9, 2014
If you're a regular watcher of sports, you probably know Cleatus. If you don't, he's the animated robot character who appears regularly on the NFL's broadcasts on Fox. Some fans love him, others hate him, but there's no denying he's widely recognized. Cleatus is about to become even more recognized with an upcoming monster truck in his likeness, which will appear at Monster Jam and other monster truck events throughout 2014.
The Cleatus monster truck will be used to promote Fox's new Fox Sports 1 channel, the successor to the loved, but niche Speed Channel. Fox Sports 1 will carry a broader variety of programming, from motorsport to college and professional sports and UFC fights. Like most of the other trucks featured in the Monster Jam series, Cleatus is powered by a supercharged V-8 producing approximately 1500 hp. Cleatus will be driven by Frank Krmel and will appear throughout the 2014 Monster Jam series.
Below are two videos, a time lapse of the making and painting of Cleatus' fiberglass body and another featuring Cleatus (the robot) making an appearance at a San Diego Padres game in 2013. Select Monster Jam events will be aired on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 channels.
