In the fall of 1983 at the 4 Wheel Drive Jamboree in Indianapolis, Indiana, the Samson Monster Truck, owned and driven by Don Maples of Huntsville, Alabama made its debut. Dan and Chris Patrick purchased the truck and name in 1988. Over the past 30 years, the Samson body has undergone many changes and paint schemes. From Red, to Coors Extra Gold, to Keystone, to American Gladiators with the Arms to Red-White-Blue, to our signature “Samson Blue”. Dan thought he would give the monster truck “thing” a try for a few years and here we are 25 years later still going strong!!

In the past 14 years at the Monster Jam World Finals, we’ve seen the fastest monster truck racing course determine Monster Jam’s World Finals Racing Champion.
