Get Ready To Rumble: Mopar Muscle Pays Tribute to Hemi 50th Anniversary
First New Monster Truck in More Than Decade To Join Monster Jam Series
There's nothing more all-American than Monster Truck racing, and for decades, names like Bigfoot, Grave Digger, and others have established themselves as fan favorites. Mopar is hoping to add another name to that list with the introduction of Mopar Muscle. The first new monster truck in more than a decade, Mopar Muscle will be campaigned by Hall Brothers Racing and joins its fellow monster Rams, Raminator and Rammunition, in the team's lineup.
Weighing 10,300 pounds, Mopar Muscle can still get out of its own way without a problem, thanks to a 2000-hp, 565-cubic-inch supercharged Hemi V-8 engine. Mopar Muscle will be driven by Hall Racing driver Mike Miller, who is so passionate about Mopar performance, he named his son Hemi.
Mopar Muscle will wear a special 50th Anniversary logo for 2014 in recognition of a half-century of the iconic second-generation 426 Hemi, the engine that firmly established Chrysler reputation for performance vehicles in the 1960s. Mopar Muscle will make its public debut on January 11, 2014, at Ford Field in Detroit at the Monster Jam event.
Mopar Muscle will compete at six events scheduled in 2014, including events in Texas, Ohio, Missouri, Pennsylvania, and Indiana. Monster Jam events will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2 channels.
