Where Is King Kong Monster Truck?

King Kong Monster Truck is one of the most iconic monster trucks in the world. It has been around for over three decades and is a staple at monster truck events across the United States. The truck is known for its giant size, aggressive driving style, and loud engine.

The King Kong Monster Truck was created in 1987 by owner and driver Bob Chandler and has since become an integral part of the monster truck scene. The truck stands at 12 feet tall and weighs over 10,000 pounds.

It is powered by two 540 cubic inch supercharged engines which produce a total of over 6,000 horsepower. The truck also features oversized tires which allow it to navigate through obstacles with ease.

The King Kong Monster Truck has been featured in numerous movies, television shows, and video games. It has also won several awards including being inducted into the Motorsports Hall of Fame in 2010. Despite its popularity, however, there have been some changes to the truck over time as new parts have been added or replaced to keep up with new trends in monster trucks.

In recent years, there have been reports that King Kong may be retired from active competition due to Bob Chandler’s failing health. As of now, it appears that the truck still makes occasional appearances but it is unclear if it will continue to compete or if it will eventually retire for good.

For those who are looking forward to seeing this legendary vehicle in action again, there may be hope yet as Bob Chandler’s son Gary Chandler has taken up the mantle of driving and maintaining the King Kong Monster Truck. Hopefully he will be able to keep up his father’s legacy and bring this beloved vehicle back into active competition soon!


The King Kong Monster Truck is one of the most iconic vehicles in all of motorsport history and has been thrilling audiences for more than three decades now. While there are reports that it may be retired due to its owner’s failing health, some hope remains as Bob Chandler’s son Gary is now handling driving duties for the vehicle.
