Driver update: former Dirt Oval Champion behind the wheel of Wild Side!


Due to external circumstances, Chris Bergeron will no longer be driving the Wild Side monster truck at Monster Mayhem. Filling the void will be veteran driver Sean Duhon. He is no stranger to The Dirt Oval having competed here multiple times in multiple trucks. In 2006, he drove Excaliber to the racing victory on the treacherous Over-Under bridge track. Duhon is well-prepared to reclaim the racing title 10-years later no matter how crazy or ‘over the top’ the track may be at Monster Mayhem.

Updated Monster Truck & Driver Line-up:

Avenger – Jim Koehler
Wild Side – Sean Duhon
Crushstation – Greg Winchenbach
Rage – Cory Rummell
Over Bored – Jamey Garner
Wrecking Crew – Mike Thompson
Brutus – Brad Allen
War Eagle – Devin Jones
