Bad News Travels Fast truly has a paint job befitting its interesting name. It features a very cartoon-style graphic of a crazed paperboy on a bike, about to toss some “bad news” on someone’s doorstep. This clever take on its paint job makes it a favorite at pit parties whenever driver/owner Bruce Haney brings it to a Monster Jam® event. Haney originally broke into motor sports as a motocross rider, but as soon as he discovered Monster Jam trucks in the 80’s, he knew he had to make a change. After spending most of his free time pursuing a Monster Jam career, he and his wife, Jami, decided it was time to leave his successful job at a Ford dealership and commit to Monster Jam full time. They bought the old Excalibur Monster Jam truck and converted it into Bad News Travels Fast, and now spend most of the year racing and freestyling against the best drivers in the world, along with Brandon Derrow.
