Diehl Wilson and the Virginia Giant have been one of our longest customers and when he decided to build an all new ride truck he looked no further than here at PEI. The truck was built completely in house at PEI and finished up in May. Much like all of Diehl Wilson’s trucks, this one is absolutely beautiful. The body and artwork is reminiscent of Wilson’s race truck back in the early 2000’s. The truck has already given plenty of rides this year on the Performance Motorsports Inc schedule and has plenty more ahead in the future. If you’d like to check out the craftsmanship on this truck and go for a ride, you can do so at our Open House on October 5th! Thanks to Diehl Wilson for being a fantastic customer over the past 24 years. If you’re looking forward to building your next ride truck, race truck or just in need of components for your existing truck, make PEI your first choice!Read more →
First quarter is always a busy time of year for the industry and ourselves as we’re churning out new parts to keep up with the busy demands. While that was going on we were also working on another new chassis, this time for Larry Overman of Barboursville, West Virginia. We were able to finish up this new piece and Overman picked up his new chassis back in March of this year. Read more →
The crew at PEI are always staying busy with a variety of projects but chassis are always some of the biggest projects we do. Before the end of 2018 we completed a second chassis for our repeat customer Zane Rettew of Rettew Motorsports. Rettew has campaigned the Stinger Monster Truck for the past several years and came to us for his chassis needs when building his last two trucks. Rettew and his wife Lindsey have gone on to have great success with their two trucks this year (Stinger and Pretty Wicked) on the Monster Jam circuit. They were able to complete the truck assembly in just one month after picking up the rolling chassis in December. We thank the Rettew’s for their business and look forward to seeing them put our products to the test every time they hit the track!

Since taking the turn from being a fan to becoming a driver, Matt Pagliarulo and the Tom Foolery Motorsports team have been supporters and customers of Patrick Enterprises Inc. Their first chassis was completed in 2014 to become the very first Jester Monster Truck. In that time Pagliarulo and his team have competed across the country on the sports’ biggest stages in front of massive crowds and finding success along the way. Pagliarulo has a reputation for pushing the truck to the limits and going big in freestyle every time he takes to the track. Last year the Pagliarulo’s made the decision to expand their operation by adding a second truck to the team with the all new concept for the Kraken Monster Truck for their oldest son Nick. The all new chassis from PEI would be going to Matt and Jester, while Nick would inherit their first truck to run as Kraken. The PEI team would put the finishing touches on the piece in May before delivering it to the Pagliarulo’s in Deltona, Florida along with a ton of parts to complete the assembly of the truck. Their team has a quick turnaround ahead of them as they intend to debut the truck next month in July for a busy summer schedule ahead. We look forward to seeing the all new Jester Monster Truck in action and we’re proud to have the Tom Foolery Motorsports team as great customers putting our products to the test.
While Dan Carey of Ontario, Canada is a relative newcomer to the monster truck business he’s jumped into in a big way. In 2016 we completed our first chassis for Carey which went on to become the awesome looking Train Wreck monster truck. Since its debut Carey has been performing across Canada and parts of the United States with the truck and making a name for himself and his team. Recently Carey decided to expand his operation and put in an order with Patrick Enterprises Inc for a second chassis which was recently completed. We’re excited to see another happy customer putting our products to work in the industry and looking forward to seeing what Carey and the Train Wreck crew come up with for their next truck. For all your monster truck chassis and monster truck parts needs remember to contact us to get what you need!
As the industry evolves so do we. To keep up with the demands of the busy summer monster truck circuit you have to have the best equipment both on and off the track. Our all new Featherlite Trailer sets an all new standard for the industry as we gear up for the upcoming summer events. Take a look at our amazing new competition/display trailer from the folks at Featherlite. After getting its first bath the trailer has been tucked away inside the PEI headquarters getting fully outfitted for the upcoming events this season. A huge thank you to everyone at Featherlite for their efforts in making our home away from home something great. Their hometown of Cresco, Iowa takes great pride in the company and we even got a mention in the local newspaper. Read more →
The newest PEI competition ready chassis to roll out of the shop and be ready for action this season was for Zane Rettew of Holtwood, PA. This piece was delivered as a complete rolling chassis ready for driveline and other necessary assembly before being ready to run. In addition to the chassis construction and other parts, all the powder coating was done in house at our new powder coating shop. Rettew picked up the chassis in December and completed the finished truck before his first event of the season in Charlotte, North Carolina on January 6th. Since then Rettew has racked up a number of wins and had great success with Stinger Unleashed on Monster Jam’s Arena Championship Series.
We’re also working on a second chassis to be completed in the near future for Rettew’s operation and look to see it on the circuit soon. We’d like to wish Rettew the best of luck for the upcoming season and we thank him for being a great customer.

We’re excited to share that we’ve recently completed yet another PEI Chassis, this time for a familiar face in Mitch Tulachka of Kewaunee, Wisconsin. Tulachka was the owner and driver of the Just Get ‘Er Done and Robo Machine monster trucks in recent memory, but he had stepped away from the circuit for a few years. We’re happy to see Tulachka make a return to the industry and that he chose PEI for his chassis solution. Tulachka will be completing the rest of the truck build in the near future so keep an eye out to see his new truck in action. Best of luck Mitch and thank you for your business! Read more →
