USA-1 is a monster truck that was competing during the eighties and nineties, named after a Chevrolet ad campaign. It competed against Bigfoot in the first televised monster truck race on the American television show That's Incredible! in 1983. [ [http://www.bigfoot4x4.com/firsts.html Bigfoot Monster Truck Firsts] ; Retrieved March 24 2008] The truck was initially painted blue before it was repainted in white.

Everett Jasmer built and raced the truck in the late 1970s. USA-1 was a consistent winner in the mid to late 80s with Steve Wilke and Rod Litzau sharing the driving, and is best known for its many wins and legendary crashes. It won the 1988 TNT Monster Truck Racing Series championship. [http://www.monstertrucks-uk.com/usa-1.html USA-1] ; monstertrucks-uk.com; Retrieved March 24 2008] It was one of the last nationally competitive monster trucks to use a leaf spring suspension. Everett contacted Mark Hall, co-owner of Raminator, to campaign a USA-1 body in 1992 on their Executioner chassis. In the next year, Everett had Kirk Dabney campaign the body on his Nitemare 4 chassis. USA-1 stopped racing in the early 90s, after the folding of the TNT Monster Truck Racing Series. As of March 2008, Everett owns the original vehicles and the trademark to the name.
