Lenny Kuilder, driver of the Prowler monster truck put this article out about retirement from monster truck racing. Thank you for all the great memories and Good Luck in the future!
From Lenny's Facebook: "As everyone in the industry begins to hit the road to start off first quarter and the 2017 season, for the first time in 12 years I will not be heading out to start another season of monster trucks. I have made the incredibly difficult decision that it is time for me to move on to pursue some other things in life. I have been around this industry and working on these amazing trucks in one way or another since I was 7 years old so they have literally been my life for a majority of the time I have been alive. I am so incredibly thankful for all of the friends I have made over the years and even more thankful for all of the absolutely amazing fans who have supported me through my career!!!! You never know where I may show up from time to time because as they say, once this stuff gets in your blood, it’s hard to get it out of your system but for now at least I will not be around full time anymore. I feel that I can’t say it enough that I will cherish the friendships I have made with both fans and others in the industry alike and will always remember all of you for the rest of my life. Good luck to everyone this year and I hope to see many of you out there again somewhere".
