THE LATEST IN THE WORLD OF DIESEL POWER
It’s official. A Duramax-powered monster truck has infiltrated the top ranks of Monster Jam—and it’s highly competitive. Driven by Sparks Motors’ Heavy D, the “Brodozer” is the first diesel-powered truck to ever compete in Monster Jam and it debuted at Nashville in late June. It’s powered by a Wagler Competition Products Duramax that’s saddled with a compound turbo arrangement and S&S Diesel Motorsport fueling. Although the truck experienced some overheating issues toward the end of its time on the track, its freestyle performance wasn’t hindered in the least and it even sat in first place for most of the competition. Heavy D and the Brodozer would end up fourth overall—not a bad debut on one of the biggest stages in all of motorsports. In addition to holding its own against all the alcohol-powered competition, the truck’s unique sound and plumes of smoke were well-received by the crowd.
