Hot Wheels is a monster truck currently racing in the USHRA Monster Jam series.
It is currently driven by Rob Knell, Guy Wood and Chuck Warner. It is sponsored
by Mattel's Hot Wheels line of toys, and is often used in promotional materials
for the brand's Monster Jam truck collection. The truck's sponsorship is run
through Live Nation, but the chassis is owned by Tom Meents, who is contracted
to run the body. The truck usually tours with its teammate, Maximum Destruction.
Hot Wheels has appeared at 5 World Finals. The truck has known to get sick air at
the stadium. The most being in 2004.The last 2 years Hot Wheels has not competed
in the freestyle segment, most likely because of rollovers or damage in
Racing. Although in 2006 it was unexplained why he didn't compete in
freestyle, but in 2007 in racing his drive shaft fell out when he was halfway
down the track. Hot Wheels often has been known to push the envelope during
freestyle. For some reason Hot Wheels usually comes out later in the order of
freestyle (For the exception of 2004).

truck as it worked it's extra flex into a great score for a 118 inch wheelbase
vehicle, we knew we would have to do a page on
