That sure looks like the Shockwave truck with a different paint job. I'm not aware of any other triple engine jet trucks. There is however the jet powered Kenworth of Bob Motz powered by a single BIG jet engine. I saw the two side by side a few years back at Englishtown, Incredible display of power would be an understatement.
