Ram Sponsored Truck Breaks Guinness World Record

Ram Sponsored Truck Breaks Guinness World Record

One of the incredible monster trucks that Ram sponsors has broken the Guinness World Record for the "Fastest Speed for a Motor Truck". The Raminator, Ram's sponsored truck, broke the record at the Circuit of The Americas in Austin, Texas, by hitting a new record speed of 99.10 miles per hour. The driver of the vehicle, Mark Hall, earned the title at 8:44 A.M. (CT), by breaking the previous record held at 96.8 miles per hour.

The Ram sponsored monster trucks frequent races and freestyle events, touring around the country and making appearances at dealerships where they perform car-crushing entertainment specials and offer ride-alongs for fans of all ages. To perform the Guinness World Record stunt, Ram trucks chose a perfect site for the record attempt, at the multi-purpose facility, Circuit of The Americas venue. The facility in Austin, Texas houses a 3.4-mile race track on 1000-acres of land.  The Circuit of the Americas hosts a multitude of events from the ESPN's X Games to Formula 1 racing, throughout the year.

Ram has been a longtime sponsor of monster trucks, since 2002, and sponsors both the 2014 Monster Truck Nationals Champion the Rammunition and Raminator. The Raminator was named the Monster Truck Racing Association's "Truck of the Year" eight times. The Mopar Muscle was also introduced in 2014, as a monster truck sponsored by Mopar. All of the trucks sponsored by both Ram and Mopar are operated and owned by Hall Brothers Racing Team, who are based out of Chapaign, Illinois. Mark Hall, driver of the Raminator, has received the "Driver of the Year" accolade nine times.  "Mechanic of the Year" has been given to Crew Chief Tim Hall, five times since 2006.

Crew Chief and Hall Brothers Racing President, Tim Hall, spoke to the challenge that the team faced when attempting to break the record, and how it is an experience that he and his crew will never forget. Hall also spoke to the importance of having Mopar and Ram as a support system, and how their encouragement is vital to the continued success of the teams and the honor that they now can boast of being a Guinness World Records holder.
