Team Throttle Monster® to Become One of Biggest Teams in Professional Motorsports
Hottest Team in Monster Jam® Expands to Eight Monster Trucks with Acquisition
[Ogden, Utah]: Utah-based professional monster truck organization, Team Throttle Monster® confirmed today that it has completed the acquisition of the Hurricane Force* monster truck from Tim Mente. The Team will also build a new truck with an Eddie Majka™ chassis, which will take them to eight trucks competing weekly in Monster Jam™ and other professional monster truck tours throughout the United States – making them one of the biggest teams with the most active trucks and drivers in professional motorsports worldwide.
“Just five years ago I had one monster truck and with Mike Christensen we built a second truck” says Paul Jensen, Team Throttle Monster® Owner and Driver. “So, once you have one truck, why not have two? Then we went to three trucks, then four and up until just now we were at six trucks with Jurassic Attack®, Vendetta™, Velociraptor™, Wrecking Machine™, Kamikaze™ and Rockwell R.E.D.® We also have drivers competing in Feld Motor Sports® Monster Mutt Dalmatian™ and Earth Shaker® trucks.” Said Paul.
“Both of my parents drove monster trucks professionally. So, it was only a matter of time before I started my own team” says Mike Christensen, Team Throttle Monster™ Co-Founder and driver of the Vendetta™ monster truck. “There are many days where I don’t get to bed until two or three in the morning due to the demands of driving professionally and managing the logistics of our team of trucks, drivers and crew members spread across the nation in three different cities each weekend. Now with eight trucks competing on some of the biggest stages in motorsports featured in NBA and NHL arenas and NFL and MLB stadiums all-across the country, we’re taking this to an unprecedented level!” Said Mike.
“Not only are they the hottest team in Monster Jam®, now with the expansion to eight monster trucks, Team Throttle Monster® is hands-down the largest team in active professional monster truck competition.” Said Scott Jordan of Feld Entertainment®.
