History

Zombie was built in 2012 and made its debut in Memphis, TN in 2013. Zombie has always been a huge fan favorite, with many fans face painting and dressing themselves to resemble zombies, including the drivers. In 2013 and 2014, Zombie was invited to the World Finals in Las Vegas. Zombie has never won a World Championship.

In 2014, arms were added to the truck for competition. Before that, the arms were for display only. The truck's tires also featured blood decals in 2013, but the decals were later decreased.

In 2015, Bari Musawwir would get invited to World Finals 16 after winning the racing event in Syracuse, New York. A Zombie encore was featured at World Finals 16 with multiple Zombies, all having different paint schemes, arms, and hair styles.

In 2016, the Zombies from the 2015 World Finals encore will return and Tyler Groth drove the yellow Zombie from the 2015 Monster Jam World Finals Freestyle encore in the West More Monster Jam tour on the Double Trouble chassis and Bari Musawwir drove the skeleton Zombie in the East More Monster Jam tour. A temporary yellow Zombie, with a slightly different design then Tyler Groth's ,would be run on the Madusa (truck) chassis during first quarter from late January to March when Madusa was injured and unable to drive. It would be driven by Brandon Vinson (Arlington), Alx Danielsson (Oakland), and Joe Sylvester (Vancouver and El Paso).

In 2017, Bari and Tyler once again compete in More Monster Jam, Bari on the east and Tyler on the west. They will be joined by new comer Ami Houde, who would be the first full time female Zombie driver, who ran the More Monster Jam Central Coast Tour.

List of Zombie bodies

Standard- The normal Zombie body. A pale grey, with tattered blue clothes, and ripped skin. The original version was more blue, with more blood. This however, was changed after complaints about it being too scary.

Skeleton- The skeleton Zombie was a version run by Bari Musawwir in smaller shows. It features a skeleton paint job with skeleton arms, and cracks. It had purple clothes, and for the encore had ultraviolet lights in the eyes. Monster Jam cancelled this appearance after it's first show.

Female Zombie- The Female Zombie was the second most common zombie. It features yellow skin, green eyes, painted nails. eyeliner and eyelashes, purple clothes, and even a ponytail. The pony tail was removed after the encore. however. This version was driven by Brandon Vinson, and Tyler Groth, and will be driven by Ami Houde in 2017.

Yellow Zombie- Mainly an alternate appearance for the Female Zombie, which did not feature any of the eyeshadow, eye lashes, or painted nails.

Burned Zombie- The Burned Zombie only appeared in the encore, but was planned to appear in Mexico City 2016, which it unfortunately never did. It was bright red, and made to look burned, and scarred, with blue eyes. This version was unique as the mouth was open in a scream, and the arms were positioned to hold it's head. It was planned for Mexico, but was never re-made.

Biker Zombie- The Biker Zombie as well only appeared in the encore. It had green skin. purple eyes, with an eyeball dangling out, as well as a beard, and American Flag-laden cloth. It was never re-made.
