Predator is the flagship truck driven by Allen Pezo as part of Predator Racing. Predator was one of the first 3-D body trucks and is also one of the longest running and most famous. The truck has competed in four Monster Jam World Finals events and has been in every Monster Jam video game. Predator bares very similar resemblance and style to Prowler and Pouncer, Predator's two teammates.
