Monster Trucks Wiki

Spitfire (Later called Spitfire Monster Truck) was a 1954 Chevrolet Corvette ProMod monster truck owned by FELD Motorsports.

The truck only appeared during an encore performance at Monster Jam World Finals IX - alongside Backwards Bob - with Gary Porter driving. This was because several months after the World Finals, FELD received a lawsuit from an unknown party due to copyright issues with trademarking the truck's name. This resulted in the encore footage being completely omitted from all DVDs and material regarding the World Finals. Despite this, the truck would be trademarked as "Spitfire Monster Truck", and was featured under said name in Monster Jam: Urban Assault. The following year, Dragon's Breath was released under the Hot Wheels Monster Jam toy lines, which shared the same design as Spitfire, albeit with a different name. Dragon's Breath would ultimately become the new name for Spitfire, and debuted as a full-sized monster truck two years later in 2011.

Trivia

  • Both the "Spitfire" and "Spitfire Monster Truck" names were only used once. Spitfire was exclusively used at the World Finals while the latter name was used exclusively in Monster Jam: Urban Assault.
  • Had Spitfire began competition in 2009, it would have been driven by Paul Cohen, as Cohen ran the chassis with an impromptu Monster Mutt body for the 2009 season.
