The truck's original chassis that was used from 2006-2008 was converted into Grave Digger #22.

Bari Musawwir drove the truck once in Minneapolis in 2012. He ran the original body on the brand new grey chassis.

Seasock is only one of three driver who have won the World Racing championship two years back-to-back in a row with the other two being Adam Anderson (Grave Digger the Legend) and Tom Meents (Goldberg/Maximum Destruction)
