We chatted with a nearby RAM showroom – Earnhardt Auto of AZ, about the history of these RAM Monsters, and the story is impressive. In 1986, Tim and Mark Hall formed “Hall Brothers Racing”.
They used other trucks to create their monster truck line. In 1999 the Dodge Ram became the Rammunition and Ramanator. Dodge saw the success the Halls had in the monster truck industry and decided to sponsor them with a Dodge division of Daimler- Chrysler corporate sponsorship.
Ramanator and Rammunition – Hot Competitors
Perhaps one of the reasons Ramanator and Rammunition are both among the most feared competitors in monster truck racing is the Dodge Division of Daimler – Chrysler corporate sponsorship. The factory backing has enabled the Hall team to make significant performance gains, particularly with the engine.
