The Carolina Crusher was a monster truck that had an illustrious career in the world of competitive monster truck racing. The Carolina Crusher was one of the most successful monster trucks in history, winning multiple championships and setting countless records. The truck was owned and operated by Gary Porter and driven by his son Greg Porter and later, by Gary Porter himself.
The Carolina Crusher made its debut in 1986 at the Monster Truck World Finals, where it took first place. From there, the truck went on to become one of the most dominant forces in the sport.
It won four Monster Jam World Finals championships (1989, 1990, 1991, and 1992), making it one of only two trucks to win four consecutive titles (the other being Bigfoot). It also set a world record for number of backflips performed in one run with six.
The Carolina Crusher was retired from competition after the 2003 season. Its last major event was the 2003 Monster Jam World Finals, where it finished third overall. After its retirement, Gary Porter retired from driving as well but continued to own and operate the truck for special appearances at various events around North America.
In 2016, Gary Porter announced that he would be selling off all of his monster trucks due to health issues. As a result, the Carolina Crusher was sold off to a private collector who still owns it today. The truck is no longer active in competition but is still occasionally seen at events as a display piece.
