Dragon's Breath was a Corvette ProMod monster truck owned by FELD Motorsports and driven by Scott Liddycoat. The truck first appeared in 2009 as a Hot Wheels toy made by Monster Jam to replace the copyrighted Spitfire monster truck. In 2011, Dragon's Breath was turned into a real life competition truck.

History

In 2008, after the debut of Spitfire, FELD received a lawsuit for the truck's name which prevented the truck from competition. The truck was later renamed "Spitfire Monster Truck" but was only used in Monster Jam: Urban Assault.

In 2009, Dragon's Breath was introduced by Hot Wheels and Monster Jam. It was visually a clone of Spitfire and also the replacement for it.

In 2010, it is announced Dragon's Breath would make its Monster Jam competition debut in 2011 driven by former Nitro Circus crew chief, Becky McDonough.

In 2011, Becky begins her first season with the truck.

In 2012, She moved to El Toro Loco. The truck is retired.

In 2014, Scott Liddycoat was supposed to debut his new truck Dragon. However the truck wasn't finished, so Liddycoat drove Dragon's Breath until the truck was ready to debut. He would take Dragon's Breath to the Monster Jam World Finals 15 Young Guns Shootout in March. In June of the same year, Dragon officially debuted. This is the last year that Dragon's Breath competed in Monster Jam.

Trivia

  • Spitfire, Spitfire Monster Truck and Dragon's Breath all shared the same body and design.
