Team BIGFOOT Update

St. Louis, MO (February 28, 2014) –  2014 is becoming one of the most successful years in BIGFOOT 4X4’s short 39 year history! We are celebrating  Dan Runte’s 25th year behind the wheel, running in the Toughest Monster Truck Series with the Summit BIGFOOT® monster.  Eric Tack has returned to drive the Monster Nationals Series with the Lucas BIGFOOT.

Larry Swim, Darron Schnell, and Kevin Koszala are competing for the Monster-X Championship with the Odyssey BIGFOOT, the Vi-COR BIGFOOT, and the Firestone BIGFOOT trucks. JR Adams is in his first year racing a BIGFOOT truck with appearances in numerous Checkered Flag Production Events.

BIGFOOT in the UK!

As a firmly established part of the driver roster at Team BIGFOOT HQ in St Louis Missouri, JR brings a wealth of experience to his driving job.  He is “over the moon” to have a chance at racing for European fans all over Europe. We will bring you a more in-depth interview with JR in the coming weeks.

St. Louis, MO/Daventry, Northamptonshire, U.K. (February 3, 2014) –  For the first time ever in Europe, there will be not one, not two, but THREE BIGFOOT® Monster trucks all in one place at the same time!

European Monster Truck Racing Champion and Truckfest fan-favorite BIGFOOT #17 is joined, for the first time ever, by JR Adams driving the multi championship winning Firestone US BIGFOOT. Joining the two race trucks will be the all new for 2014 RETROFOOT 10-seater BIGFOOT ride truck.

RETROFOOT is a newly rebuilt Retro ride truck, giving its passengers the real monster truck experience. Its leaf spring suspension, which monster trucks ran for many years, reveals just how tough the sports pioneers were!  Retrofoot is Europe’s ONLY MTRA certified ride truck – just one more way that the Live Promotions team is proving that visitor safety is their top priority.

Only one team of event promoters could have had the imagination, vision, and resources to bring about an event of this magnitude.  Promoters of the hugely successful Truckfest, and BIG fans of the whole BIGFOOT Team, Live Promotions has been booking trucks from The Original Monster Truck® family for a decade.

Late in 2013, event director Bob Limming contacted BIGFOOT #17 driver Nigel Morris and said the words that would change history, “Nigel, I want another BIGFOOT truck at Truckfest this year!”  Numerous Trans-Atlantic calls between Morris and Bob Trent, BIGFOOT 4X4, Inc.’s VP of Sponsorships & Business Development, followed, resulting in this unprecedented 2014 BIGFOOT Invasion.

BIGFOOT Heads Down Under!

BIGFOOT Heads Down Under!

St. Louis, MO (September 27, 2013) – Almost 40 years ago, a man named Bob Chandler modified his brand new F-250 to promote his 4×4 business. As the parts bills increased, the truck grew bigger and bigger and became the world’s first monster truck. Now, after over 3 decades of thrilling millions of fans around the World, acquiring numerous Guinness World Records, and debuting 20 different BIGFOOT® monster trucks, a brand new BIGFOOT is set to be unleashed in Australia. And it is guaranteed to thrill a whole new audience of monster fans around Australia and New Zealand.

That’s right! An all new BIGFOOT truck will be based on QLD’s Sunshine Coast, under the control of Clive Featherby and the Monster Truck Promotions Australia crew, and will be seen extensively around Australia and New Zealand. BIGFOOT is the true legend of Monster Trucks, and its pending arrival Down Under is by far the biggest and most exciting news ever for monster truck fans in Australia.

BIGFOOT will make its Debut on 12 October 2013 in Brisbane and will be driven by long-time BIGFOOT driver and winner of 3 US championships, Rick Long. Rick and BIGFOOT will start off in Gosford, New South Wales on October 12th and then on to Whyalla, South Australia, and many more from there. Check for a detailed schedule of events.

BIGFOOT will sport the new style BIGFOOT off-road body, as seen on Bigfoot 18, in a custom new color scheme with blue, orange and bkack, making this one of the best looking monsters ever seen.

BIGFOOT’s first Australian challenge will be a car crushing, car jumping contest against the Aussie champion “Outback Thunda” in an all out contest for the Australian car jumping record.
