12. Blue Thunder
Year created: 2000
The Blue Thunder Monster Truck first debuted in 2000 and is one of the most popular in the USHRA Monster Jam series. The truck shares a number of traits with Big Foot, and many fans thought at one point it was designated to replace the popular truck in the professional series. The truck has won a number of major tournaments during its lifetime, and it was not in competition during 2012 after Todd LeDuc moved to an alternative ride after the 2011 season. The truck was brought back in 2013, and is based on an F Series Ford pickup truck powered by a 540 ci Merlin, Blown & Injected engine. The truck performs at more than 20 events each year, and there are a total of two trucks built carrying the Blue Thunder name to aid in maximizing the shows it can perform at throughout the year.
