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.
