The flagship in The Posse's trio of monster trucks, The Ride is one of the most competitive trucks on the circuit.  Having gotten a recent chassis rebuild and suspension upgrade, The Ride's flashy green and black F-150 body has been crossing the finish line first more times than not.  Although the truck's name comes from the comments of the driver after the first test drive of the first version of this truck, some would apply the name to the driver herself. A calm, friendly, nice, even quiet person outside of the truck, the driver rides an emotional rollercoaster to cold, calculating, and deadly serious when she pulls to the line, then back to sweet and sponsor and fan friendly as soon as the run is over.  Combine the focus and skill with the latest technology in suspension as well as a massive new 540 C.I. Merlin engine and the outcome is almost certain.  The only dent in The Ride's armor is a freestyle approach that the driver claims is "under development", a flaw which leads to a slightly smaller fan base than one would expect, especially considering the stunning looks of both truck and driver.  The Posse do not care, however.  The Ride is their most lethal weapon and they are more than happy to use it.

Easily the brightest monster on the circuit, the Ford Expedition bodied OutRageous is The Posse's testbed truck, a machine which gets the newest equipment, like a brand new low cradle chassis, for the sole purpose of finding its limits, both in speed and destruction.  The results lead to inconsitent finishes and a "win or crash" record, but that makes it one of the true fan favorites.  The truck's driver is appropriately bestowed with a lead foot, and the truck's runs are often all out and all over the track.  The driver also is a bit of a show off, playing to the crowd every chance she gets and making sure that she holds the top spot for most flamboyant driver.  The result of the huge horsepower the truck has and the outlandish driver are consistent top finishes in freestyle.  That depends, of course, on how the truck holds up, and whether the driver manages to keep the truck on four wheels for a long enough time.  Even if a run is only 10 seconds long, the fans are still sure to get a show that is truly OutRageous.

  For years, The Posse have been known for the flamboyant OutRageous and the hardcore The Ride, but arguably their most popular truck is the initially unintimidating Expect No Mercy.  In fact, more than anything, ENM, as the fans call it, shows the humor that the ultra-competitve Posse has.  The wheelbase and the driver fit the same description-short, and the name comes from the obvious lack of respect such a combination would get.  While the driver's stature is more chance than anything, there is an interesting story to the length of the truck.  The original chassis was designed for a short wheelbase panel van body, with coilover shocks that leaned outwards extending the length of the truck.  When the chassis was acquired by the Posse, the plan was to stick with this setup until ENM's driver substituted in OutRageous for one event, and liked how well the straight up nitro shocks drove.  They changed the shock setup to vertical nitros and created a monster which is almost comically short in length.  The 1966 Chevy pickup body got a neon themed black and pink paint job, and the truck was ready for its debut.  When the Posse showed up with the small black monster, both fans and competition treated it as a complete joke at worst and a novelty at best.  They were promptly quieted when ENM made it to the finals, and despite losing to teammate The Ride, the Posse declared ENM's debut a success.  Today, the fans love ENM, it has more endearing qualities than most monsters and is still considered an underdog despite many wins.  The truck recently went through a rebuild with a newer chassis (although it retains the short wheelbase), new RaceRunner bypass shocks, and a new Merlin engine, to ensure its competitiveness. As the Posse like to say, they're so nice they gave you fair warning: Expect No Mercy!

A light, fast, and unpredictable machine, Mayhem Maker is running one of the oldest setups on the circuit, a Willman style chassis with a set back front engine.  The combination is light and quick but often unpredictable, and though the suspension has seen shock upgrades in recent seasons, the truck is still arguably the bounciest monster on tour.  The Maker behind the mayhem is one of the sport's great personalities.  Intelligent, happy-go-lucky, and nice, but with a tendency to be a bit airheaded on occasion, she manages to be on the edge some of the time and over the edge the rest of the time when driving.  While her racing stats have suffered in recent times, her freestyle average is an astounding 26.8 out of 30, the highest of all trucks on the circuit.  This is a credit to that old-school chassis design, which keeps the truck together and on all fours somehow, despite being thrown around on the floor and jumped into the stratosphere.  The wicked freestyles and the cartoony purple, green, and white paintjob makes the truck a hit with the kids, though nearly everone on the circuit gives the Maker its due.  In a sport where image is everything, Mayhem Maker is one of the few trucks that truly lives up to its name.

Terminal Ferocity
The Terminal Ferocity team is comprised of a group of computer "enthusiasts" (though some would call them hackers) who also have enough mechanical knowledge and interest to run a monster truck.  Their truck of choice is an old Garza chassis clone from the northeast with an updated shock system and a 2004 Chevy body.  While the truck is consistent it also is lagging behind the newer technology of trucks like The Ride and OutRageous, which have been completely rebuilt as new trucks in the last year.  With the driver very much comfortable with the suspension setup, the team is looking to other ways to increase competitiveness. Always willing to try something new, the team showed up at the SEMA show with a twin turbo, V-10 Chevy engine that shocked the crowd and made the competition a tad nervous.  While the team has successfully tested the turbo setup, they are still restricted to the supercharged ex-mud racer engine that the truck normally runs.  There are two reasons for this. First, there are turbo lag issues which continue to aggrivate the team, though the team's connections with World Rally engineers are bound to solve it. Second, and more serious, is the rulebook, as supercharged V8's are still the only allowed setup.  The team is pushing for less engine restrictions, and the competition is split on the idea.  Some see it as a great way to bring back the creativity and diversity the sport once had, some see it as legalizing an unfair advantage that would make thousands of dollars of equipment obsolete overnight, and some are purely indifferent ("We'd still beat them, anyhow," a Mayhem Maker team member is quoted as saying).  Whatever the outcome, the Terminal Ferocity team is sure to find a way to up the technology wars somehow.

Off-Road Rage
A youth spent watching Ivan Stewart, Rod Millen, and the like bashing around stadiums, and hundreds of quarters pushed into Super Off-Road arcade games formed the genesis of Off-Road Rage, currently the circuit's only import bodied truck.  The driver is an ex-off-road racer who was loved by fans but reviled among drivers for excessively aggressive driving in the short course series.  Upset by the complaining from his fellow racers, and lusting for the superstardom that the current situation in off-road racing couldn't give him, he turned to monster trucks as a way to achieve the stadium glory of his heroes, and to be allowed to drive as aggressively as he wants to.   Off-road fans who followed him over approved, as did monster truck fans and even his monster truck competition, and he has reached the upper eschelon of the sport very quickly.  This is also partly due to his truck, which was once a classic southern superstar from the glory days of monster racing.  The frame has been upgraded and repainted, with a new bypass-shock suspension system, and a 557 C.I. Chevy Rodeck provides all the power he could want.  The body came straight from the same fiberglass shop that did Ivan Stewart's desert Toyota bodies, and despite being a much older model, Toyota was quick to sign on as a sponsor, and PPI gave him the go-ahead to run a modified version of the classic Ironman paint job.  Despite all of the success and several wins, both racing and freestyle, the truck has yet to win a championship.  The driver is pleased with his accomplishments so far, but until he wins the big prize, he'll continue to have a bad case of Off-Road Rage!

Despite being relatively new on the circuit, Alter Ego is driven by one of the long time veterans of the series. He owned a previous Dodge named "Ram Force" in the early 1990s, and was fairly successful. However, he was infamous for acting as different characters during interviews. A few other teams, who worried his quirkiness was giving off too much of a professional wrestling vibe, managed to convince his wife to urge him to take a psychological evaluation as a way of scaring him straight. The wife agreed to do it as she hoped it would be a way to get him out of racing, which she felt was too dangerous. Although the tests proved he was perfectly sane, the Rorschach ink blot section acted as an epiphany to him. He went home and put a for sale sign on Ram Force, which pacified his wife. Until, that is, she saw the $125,000 bill for a customer truck from the Gone Postal team. Drawing on the false accusations of schitzophrenia, he named the new truck Alter Ego and asked his painter to develop a unique ink blot design for the new Ram body. Like other Dodges in the series, a massive 557 c.i. Hemi powers the machine. The driver has kept up his interview schtick, although he rarely gets to use it since it has been a tough transition to the new truck, and his wins are now few and far between. Although many fans regard the driver as past his prime, he still maintains a moderately small but dedicated group of hardcore fans who call themselves the "Egomaniacs" and defend him and his truck to the bitter end. These are the people he plays to, as he always loves the chance to display his Alter Ego.

The aftermath of a monster truck event can be a startlingly post-apocalyptic scene, with cars and other road vehicles reduced to unrecognizable scrapheaps, rusting away in a bleak, dirty landscape. It is here where Driven To Destruction looks most at home. A newer truck built by a fan of the "Mad Max" movies, DTD, as fans call it, is adorned with abandoned cities, lonely desert roads, and several direct references to the movies, including a silhouette of the iconic black Ford Falcon Interceptor. At one point, even the engine, a 572 c.i. Ford SVO block, wore a replica of the Interceptor's Scott Injection scoop, although the truck has since been upgraded to a modern injector. With a 2nd place championship finish in only it's second year, DTD is already one of the premier racers on the circuit, but it's known by fans for freestyle. The driver has leadfoot, almost suicidal style which is tough on equipment but electrifies the crowd and stays true to the truck's name. With a new upgrade to a Posse-built chassis, the chances of the truck holding up to the intense freestyles have risen dramatically. Like the crazed prison escapee in the opening scenes of the movie, the driver of this truck is indeed Driven to Destruction.

One of the long time veterans of the circuit, Gone Postal is one of the most consistently popular trucks in the history of the series. Conceived in the early 1990's as a converted Post Office Jeep which the driver, a former frustrated mailman himself, had purchased in an auction, the truck had a bouncy and by then outdated coil spring and Rancho shock suspension and a name which was controversial at the time due to lingering memories of recent events. The truck got an updated full four-link suspension a few years later and became one of the top runners in the sport. The truck was only recently remodeled with a new frame and suspension, Hummer body (for, as the driver says, "The ultimate urban assault vehicle look,") and a new paintjob which matches the updated image of the United States Post Office. In recent years the truck has joined OutRageous and Mayhem Maker as being more well known for freestyle than for racing, though every year it manages to score one major event victory. The Post Office despises the machine, claiming it reinforces false stereotypes and violates trademarks (although a judge has said differently); the driver says he supports postal workers and it's the upper levels of management which the truck stands against. Controversy aside, the truck remains a fan favorite, and the crowd always gets on its feet when, in freestyle, the driver has finally Gone Postal.

When a rollercoaster forms the basis of a monster truck's identity, you know what type of truck and driver you're dealing with. Such is the case with Pandemonium, an adrenaline junkie's bright orange dream. When the driver took a trip to a New England theme park and rode the namesake coaster, which has cars that spin as they go around the track, he knew instantly what his truck would look like and what his cyclone-spinning freestyle hook would be. Powered by a massive 572 c.i. Chrysler Hemi, the chassis is a Posse customer model, the first to see actual competition (the So Cold display truck has yet to crush a car). The 2005 Dodge Ram shortbed body is a bit small for the truck, and as a result the truck looks rather ungainly, but it has the same performance advantages as the Posse's own trucks. The tall look makes for some odd looking cyclones, but the truck manages to stay planted. While racing is hit or miss, freestyle is beyond solid and more and more often the truck is placing higher than more well known freestylers like Mayhem Maker and OutRageous. If nothing else, the truck is a great ad for the chassis and proves that even misproportioned monsters can cause serious Pandemonium.

When Midori No Kaiju's driver got hired to do both research and promotion for the national Ethanol program, she had no idea that two years later she would be the newest monster truck driver on the circuit. Fresh out of college, she was a smart, ambitious, and good looking environmentalist who was fast tracked to the public eye as the young, in touch spokeswoman of the program. Always looking to both promote the fuel and demonstrate it's capabilities, she suggested that an Ethanol powered monster truck would be a perfect fit. Her superiors agreed and gave the go signal, but only if she drove the truck, thereby fulfilling her promotional role. Several phone calls later, and she was at the Posse compound, bounding around in the old Expect No Mercy under the supervision of its regular driver. Having learned the basics, construction began on the truck, which, thanks to GM sponsorship, took the form of a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado shortbed, powered by a 572 cubic inch Chevy big block modified to run on Ethanol. The truck was originally going to be given the environmentally conscious name "Green Monster", but when a big league baseball team and a audio component maker both threatened lawsuits for trademark infringement, the driver used her love of anime as inspiration and translated the old name into Japanese.  With the mid-season introduction, it's still much too early to tell what both truck and driver are truly capable of.  Nevertheless, the fans love the truck, and are paying more attention to both Ethanol and the environment; and in that sense, Midori No Kaiju is already a success.

No other monster on the circuit is as much of a revolving door as Dreadnaught.  Since its inception, it has been bought and sold seemingly every couple of years, with little success on the track.  The truck was initially a race version of the popular Canadian-based leaf-sprung machine "Toronto Sabre".  It was fairly competitive in its first year, but the sponsors didn't come, and the owner was left with little choice but to sell the operation to keep in the black.  Its new owner in the USA rechristened it "Dreadnaught" and scored a few wins over as many seasons with the vehicle.  Health problems forced yet another sale, and the truck entered a decade long period of changing hands from underfunded operation to underfunded operation.  Finally, in 2003, it was bought by the owner of a regional auto parts chain, and got a tremendous influx of money and new parts, which included the 2004 Chevy body, 557 c.i. engine, and very modern suspension and drivetrain components.  Of particular note was the overhauled image of the truck, which gained it many new fans and sold lots of t-shirts.  The honeymoon was short-lived, however.  After a half-dozen drivers were unable to win without threatening damage to the truck, the owner cut his losses and put it on the market again.  Finally, and perhaps fortunately, it found a new, definitely capable, and potentially permanent home: the Terminal Ferocity team.  With a solid organization finally taking control of the machine, Dreadnaught fans may now be able to truly fear nothing.

When Controlled Demolition entered the series a few years ago, many newer fans didn't realize that it was actually a re-entry.  In fact, the truck was fairly popular back in the late '80s, when it was surprisingly competitive against better funded machines.  Like many trucks of the era, it was built to promote a business, and quickly became the business itself.  When the owner/driver began to spend more time at the track than on construction sites, where his demolition company worked, he decided it was time to step out of the cab and quietly retired the truck.  After spending many years away from the sport, he attended a show and caught the bug again.  This time, control of the demolition company had passed onto one of his kids, and he now had the means to bring his old ride back.  He spared no expense, either: the truck has a well-engineered low-cradle chassis, bypass shocks, and a monster 572 c.i. Ford block to make steam.  Results weren't immediate - there was a definite learning curve to getting back in the saddle - but by the end of the year both man and machine had found their rhythm and were right back to where they left off in racing, and unexpectedly stellar in freestyle.  More wins are coming, and it is becoming increasingly clear that the competition may be due for a Controlled Demolition.
