Allen Pezo has been on the monster truck circuit since he was 15 years old. He got the idea for building his own monster truck when he went to a truck pull at the Ponitac Silverdome in Michigan. There, the idea for his first monster truck, the Lone Eagle, was born. It was a 1984 Chevy Silverado pickup, purchased brand new (stock truck) and modified. It weighed 16,000 lbs. Allen started booking shows with SRO Motorsports. He did 20 shows per year to start. Allen’s Lone Eagle was a special attraction which was used as filler for the truck pulls and custom car shows. During these shows, Allen strictly crushed cars. There was no racing, no freestyle, no doughnuts or getting major air off the jumps. The monster truck was only for riding over cars. Allen hauled Lone Eagle around on a flatbed pulled by a 1 ton dually pickup truck. There was just enough room for the monster truck tires and the truck itself. Very few spare parts were carried. This first truck was run on gasoline. Five gallons lasted a month. Allen ran Lone Eagle for 5 years, until 1988. Allen, with the help of his family and a few friends, built this first truck. One of these friends was Larry Jaruzel, who currently shares driving responsibilities in Prowler with Allen’s cousin Dave Pezo. These same people helped Allen with each of his trucks, and are still around helping him out today.
