Clydesdale is a monster truck that races on the USHRA circuit and for other promoters. Bennett has had three trucks over the years. His first truck was a late 80's blue and silver Chevrolet Silverado that had five ton military axle housings, Rockwell PS250 planetaries, and 46 offroad shock absorbers. Bennett ran this truck till 1988. Bennetts second truck was a pink and white 1989 Chevrolet Silverado with a 144" wheelbase with an extended front clip. Deciding his axles were good after two years of use, he used him on his new truck. After a rollover due to a drag race with Wild Hair to the pits at dallas stadium in 1990, Bennett decided to rebuild the truck and repaint the body all pink with silver stripes and a horse on the door. This truck was called Clydesdale three for this reason. At its first race, Bennett was racing at Louisville Motor Speedway. In the first round, racing No Problem, Bennett had a rough landing over the set of cars, causing the left rear wheel to come off and ruin his brand new body. John Moore was interviewed and was worried because he was the one that welded that flange back on after the same thing happened in Chicago Illinois the previous year. Bennett ran this truck until 1998, when he completed his current truck, Clydesdale 4. Bennetts newest truck is his best truck yet, a 2002 Chevrolet Silverado with Knight Stalker shocks. This truck has Clark 20 ton planetaries, F-106 axle housings and features a $6500 paint job. This truck also runs as Taurus at certain events. Bennetts second truck now runs as Johnny Rocket #7 monster truck.
