Iconic Monster Truck Joins Carlisle Truck Nationals

Monster truck excitement is a staple at Carlisle each August and the tradition continues in 2017. See the truck known for starting it all; Bigfoot! Created by Bob Chandler, Bigfoot is noted as the first monster truck. What started as a promotional tool for his partner’s Midwest Four Wheel Drive business evolved into a fleet of trucks recognized worldwide. The original Bigfoot debuted in 1979 at a car show in Denver, Colorado. Its popularity yielded numerous appearances thereafter, sold millions of dollars in merchandise, spawned nearly 20 versions of the truck and is so rich in history that its biography spans three pages on its web page. Needless to say, Bigfoot will pack the house.
