1992 the exhilarating and Exhausting world of monster trucks was now a reality. A rental truck to carry the tires, a borrowed trailer and a 1200 mile trek to Pennsylvania began our journey. Now many years later, 3 custom semi's later, 5 GunSlingers later, here we are! Simply amazing!

Monster Truck Crash - Slingshot Monster Truck Crashes at Modified Nationals 2011, Peterborough
Performance Direct were at Modified Nationals 2011 which is a fantastic weekend packed full of modified motoring action. Alongside the static car displays and stands such as the Performance Direct Insurance quote station were other events such as the Wheel of Death, Bikini Babe Competition, and Monster Truck demonstration.
The Slingshot Monster truck crashed on the third run that we were filming, giving the crowd (and me) a bit of a shock as none of us were expecting to see a monster truck crash. Although the driver was a bit dazed and was attended by an ambulance he was okay and seemed to take it all in his stride. In fact his reaction showed it to be a common occurrence for him!! The Monster Truck itself did look a little bit the worst for wear though and had spilled out it's methanol fuel which needed to be dealt with by fire marshalls.
The Slingshot Monster truck is owned and run by Karl Swallow and is powered by a 540 Merlin, est. 1800 horsepower with a COAN 2-Speed transmission. The 2004 Chevy Silverado body sits upona a chassis built by Patrick Enterprises with suspension by RaceSource Stage 1 & 2.

Monster truck Crusher on fire after stunt goes wrong
At Santa Pod Monster Truck Nationals 2011 the Crusher monster truck tried to climb over a fire engine. It went wrong and the truck ended up stuck on it's back wheels and had to be winched down. Fire crews were called for the engine which went on fire after all the oil and fuel came out.
Some people have pointed out that the engine should have been remotely cut off with RII instead of leaving the truck vertical with the engine running.
Penn's Woods Jeep Jamboree 2008 - Mindy's Mud
This is a deep mud hole at the end of the orange trail. It was deep enough that most of our fans slapped the water. The mud was over the openings of my doors in the red Cherokee. The green 4 door busted his plastic running board off his new Jeep.
