Career Highlights:  In February 2000 we purchased the original “Aces High” monster truck, a 1972 Chevrolet El Camino, with a stock all steel body and flame throwing exhaust.  This truck was Nationally famous from receiving much publicity on Television.  For a few years we kept the name alive using “Aces High” for parades, exhibitions and displays.  “Aces High” was a lot of fun, but I wanted more! 

My husband and I then designed and built “Shell-Camino” monster truck, a replica to “Aces High”.  It is a MTRA certified tubular chassis competition monster truck.  “Shell-Camino” sports a handmade fiberglass body with a 572 cubic inch  MAHLE sponsored big block blown alcohol burning Chevy power plant that puts out over 1600 horsepower.  With a whole new truck, and a huge motor...What more could a girl want? 

"Every weekend entertaining our fans is a major win"" I have several plaques and trophies from huge wins against some big name trucks.. But the real enjoyment is the feedback I get from our fans in the autograph lines!"  Another accomplishment: We built a highly advanced, one of a kind ride truck. It allows families to share special moments together and get a good feeling of what it is like to be in a monster truck.  The most common response from our riders "That Was Awesome"
