In May of 2021 Jason Rogers, the owner and team captain of Piraña, went to compete in an event in West Palm Beach Florida. On this trip, he visited several Battle Bot teams. We spent an afternoon visiting Brian Nave of Team Logicom, who is the owner of Captain Shredderator. The discussion of searching for drive motors eventually led to the purchase of the combat robot Bambulance, also known as Spin doctor. Prior to the purchase, this robot competed in multiple national events. Now the bot is known as Piraña.


The name of the Bar and Grill where Jason and Brian made the deal to purchase the robot was named Piraña, which is where the new name for the robot originated.
