OPTIMA®-sponsored RAMINATOR Dominates at Lima 4 Wheel Jamboree
The first four events on the 2013 General Tire Monster Truck Thunder Drags Series were held last weekend in Lima, Ohio and we're proud to report that the OPTIMA®-sponsored monster truck, RAMINATOR, driven by Mark Hall, won them all! Eleven monster trucks battled it out over the weekend, but no one could defeat the mighty RAMINATOR. The track was long, and allowed Mark to use all 2000 horsepower of the Hemi engine.
Mat Dishman (RAMMUNITION) and Mike Miller (HOTSY) also took their RAM monster trucks into the battle, but they kept meeting up with Mark before the final round. Mark whipped up on 'em with his experience (the track was a little tricky) to take all the wins. Two of the events were taped for MAV TV and will be broadcast later this summer.
Those of you who saw these races in person may have noticed that McDonalds was a sponsor of the event in Lima and they printed 175,000 tray liners featuring RAMINATOR on them to use at their local restaraunts over the weekend. Pretty cool!
The next event on the series isn't until June 22-23 when the battle moves to Springfield, Missouri. After having such a successful weekend, the Hall Bros drivers headed for the baseball diamond, as they were identified as celebrities, who participate in a charity baseball game for handicapped and special needs kids. The kids hit the ball, then the celebrities help them run the bases (or push their wheelchairs if that is the case). Local TV and radio personalities were also be there and it was a special night for everyone at Hall Bros. Racing.
Even though the next race isn't for almost a month, you don't have to wait that long to see these incredible trucks up close. They will be headed off to dealership appearances in Corydon, Indana, Decatur, Illinois and Collierville, Tennessee this weekend!
