Monster Truck Smashes Speed Record…And A Camaro!

Have you ever dreamed of tearing up a straight track behind the wheel of a monster truck in an attempt to break a world record? Well, neither had we. But, after watching the “Raminator” set a new Guinness World Record earlier this month—we still aren’t sure how the heck this made it into the hallowed pages of the Guinness Book.
 
As anyone with redneck friends can tell you, monster trucks were built to smash, jump, and crush cars like grapes. AND, they definitely were't built to reach speeds of nearly 100 mph.
 
Despite this well know fact, driver Mark Hall pushed his Hemi-powered, car crushing monster machine to a top speed of 99.1 mph down the straightaway at the Circuit of Americas in Texas to set a new record.
 
According to a press release issued by the truck’s owner, Hall Bros, Racing, the truck has a 565 cubic inch supercharged alcohol-powered drag-racing Hemi mounted in the center of the truck that puts out a massive 2,000 hp. When you consider that the truck weighs a in at a hefty 10,300 lbs—and that each tire weighs over 900 lbs.—it’s hard to believe this top-heavy beast could achieve such an impressive speed.
 
Check out the videos below and let us know in the comments whether you think this beast has what it takes to break the century mark on its next record breaking run.



And, for your viewing pleasure the Raminator doing what it does best…
