Metal Mulisha was a monster truck owned by FELD Motorsports which ran from 2012-2017. It was driven by drivers like Matt Buyten, Brian Deegan and most notably, Todd LeDuc who took the truck to its first World Finals Championship. The truck debuted in 2012 and won its first World Championship in 2014, winning the freestyle competition with the score 37.5. In 2015, LeDuc won the Monster Jam World Finals Racing Championship and joined the small list of drivers who have won both world titles.

History

Metal Mulisha was announced in 2011 and began competing in 2012 with Todd LeDuc and Brian Deegan, both off-road racers, taking the driving duties.

In 2012, Deegan was going to compete in the World Finals, with Todd competing in the first ever Young Guns Shootout. However, due to an injury, Brian couldn't compete and Todd would compete in the World Finals for him. Joey Parnell, driver of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, would take Todd's spot in the Young Guns.

In 2013, Metal Mulisha once again made it to the World Finals, this time it would be driven by LeDuc.

In 2014, Todd Leduc made it the World Finals. In freestyle, Todd performed the biggest leap of the night and executed two back flips. He would later win with a score of 37.5.

In 2015, LeDuc made it to the World Finals again, this time, winning the Racing Championship title.

In 2016, Deegan stepped away from driving. LeDuc was invited to Monster Jam World Finals 17.

In 2017, the truck received a brand new look. Todd Leduc left Metal Mulisha to drive Monster Energy after Damon Bradshaw retired. Another off-road racer from the Metal Mulisha camp, Matt Buyten took over as the new driver. This would be the truck's final season in competition, as well as the only year for the truck to compete under the new design.

Trivia

  • The 2017 redesign was made due to there being a gun on the side of the truck. The reason for this remains unknown.
  • All three Metal Mulisha drivers, Deegan, LeDuc and Buyten, came from the original Metal Mulisha motocross team.
