Twisted Monkey Racing (TMR) is an off road racing team from North Texas. What originally began in 2013 as an extension of Twisted Creations Off Road Shop, eventually became a full time pursuit of passion and performance.

In 2015, Camburg Engineering constructed a 6100 Spec “Trophy Truck”. TMR prepared the truck for competition and raced the 2017 Mint 400. In only their first desert race, they were able to finish 19th in class and 63rd overall In 2019, TMR began their last season in Ultra4 competition and shifted the primary focus to desert racing and committed full time to racing Best In The Desert’s 6100 class With desert racing focused in the sights by the beginning of 2020, TMR added purpose built 1973 F-100 off road prerunner truck built by Tribe 16. This street legal off road truck will race in the NORRA Mexican 1000 Rally and be used as a team support vehicle during other desert races.
