Medusa was an unstoppable force on the track, winning numerous competitions and setting world records in speed, agility and power. It also made regular appearances on television shows such as Monster Jam, Monster Madness and Motor Mayhem. Off the track, it was used for promotional work by various companies and made regular appearances at local events to promote awareness of the sport.

For over twenty years Medusa remained at the top of its game until tragedy struck in 2007 when it was involved in an accident during a show. The crash caused significant damage to both the truck and George Carpenter himself who suffered serious injuries.
