Monster Mash


At today’s Monster Truck and Thrill Show at the Wolstein Center, big-ass rides perform such excellently named moves as the Sterilizer and the Superman Seat Grab. Watch out for the Raminator, a 2006 Dodge that Mark Hall has driven to four Monster Nationals championships. In the two decades Hall's been maneuvering four-wheel beasts over ramps and into other trucks, he’s seen the vehicles get bigger<\!s>.<\!s>.<\!s>. and safer. “The worst injury I’ve had is to my pride,” he laughs. “I’ll be honest, though -- I get nervous every time.” You would too if you were staring down eight tons of metal named Bigfoot and Little Ms. Dangerous. “As soon as I get past the first gear shift,” says Hall, “I just focus on what I need to do.”
