2015 PowerNation Week #3 - BigFoot is Back!

The one and only BigFoot comes to PowerNation this week! Courtney welcomes owner Bob Chandler, the father of the monster truck, along with driver Dan Runte and sponsor Jim Greenleaf from Summit Racing.

Bob is here to announce our refresh of his original BigFoot #1; the very first monster truck ever. In 1979 he and his wife Marilyn unknowingly started the monster truck craze when they bought a 1974 Ford F-250 and started transforming it into what we know today. Bob recalls what it was like to crush cars for the first time in public with BigFoot #1.

It’s our honor to get to work on this rolling piece of American history as three of our shops will have a hand in this monsterous undertaking as we tear down and rebuild the 640 cubic inch engine, suspension and other sections of the truck. Plus we’ve got four brand new episodes of tech for you. So make sure you tune in for this very special PowerNation.
