Bad News Travels Fast is a Chevy Silverado monster truck currently piloted by Brandon Derrow out of Virginia, but for over 10 years was piloted by Bruce Haney from Florida. 

Bruce Haney Days (2000-2011)

Bad News was first created under the old Excaliber truck, and was campaigned from 2000-2003 under Bruce Haney. In 2004 the team got a brand new truck and scheme which was at the time the most successful with multiple Monster Jam appearances on TV, and continued to run until 2008 with a brand new scheme.

The truck had it's most famous crash in Des Moines in 2008, when Haney rode a power wheelie and the left front wheel clipped a car stack, which in turn tore the entire front housing off the truck. It won the crash madness award that year aswell.  

In 2010 Bad News Travels Fast was featured in the video game Monster Jam: Path of Destruction as one of the playable trucks.


Brandon Derrow Days (2012- Present)

In late 2011, Bruce Haney sold the entire operation to Brandon Derrow of Virginia, and the following season a brand new scheme was debuted for the truck. In 2015 Derrow was chosen as one of sixteen trucks to compete in the Monster Jam Fox Sports 1 Championship Series.
