Mopar, Chrysler’s arms and accessories arm, announced a new partnership with Hall Brothers Racing for a piece of the Monster Truck Racing Series action. Together they are introducing the Mopar Muscle, the new Ram monster truck to be used for 2014 season alongside Hall’s championship-winning cars, the “Raminator” and “Rammunition”.

Mopar Muscle Monster Truck will be the first Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) monster truck to be introduced into the Monster Jam – the premier monster truck racing event series – in more than a decade. That’s not an interesting fact to know. What is interesting is the specs of this truly monstrous machine.

The Mopar Muscle, standing 10 feet high and weighing 10,300 pounds, is powered by a 565 cubic inch supercharged version of the iconic Gen II 426 HEMI – which recently turned 50 – developing 2,000 horsepower! There aren’t that many things in the world capable of standing in the way of a five-ton truck with that kind of oomph. It’ll just crush them with its massive tires – 66 inches high and 43 inches wide – and carry on. The truck is based on a 2014 Ram Heavy Duty truck.

“We are very proud of our new Mopar Muscle Ram monster truck,” said Tim Hall owner and crew chief for the Champaign, Ill.-based team. “It looks really fantastic, and I can’t wait to see it run. Mopar has a long and storied history of winning across many forms of racing, so we intend on helping to make their entry into monster truck racing just as successful.”

Mopar Muscle will compete at the following events during the 2014 season:
•           January 11 – Monster Jam in Detroit, Mich.
•           February 22 – Monster Jam in Arlington, Texas
•           May 16-18 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Lima, Ohio
•           June 21-22 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Springfield, Mo.
•           July 11-13 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Bloomsburg, Pa.
•           September 19-21 – 4 Wheel Jamboree in Indianapolis, Ind.
