BIGFOOT Visits Central America, Aruba, and Eastern Europe!
BIGFOOT was a huge hit in Central America!
(St. Louis, MO) 2012 has been a historic year for Team BIGFOOT, with 3 national championships, a new long jump world record, the debut of 3 new BIGFOOT trucks (one of which is the world's first electric monster truck), expansion to Australia, and now, a world tour spanning different continents and thousands of miles! Normally autumn sees the schedule scale back as the racing season slowly winds down....but this year it was just warming up as the Monster X World Tour was ready to kick off!
The first two weeks of September saw the team travel to Central America for multiple shows in both Nicaragua and Guatemala! The competition was fierce and the packed houses were treated to excellent shows. BIGFOOT would notch several freestyle, wheelie, and racing wins throughout both weekends!
The Monster X World Tour next took the show thousands of miles "across the pond" to Europe! Veteran UK BIGFOOT driver Nigel Morris would pilot BIGFOOT #17 through a whirlwind set of shows in Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and finally, the "Crown Jewel of Russia," Moscow!

Fresh off their world record jump, Summit Racing BIGFOOT #18 and driver Dan Runte also made the trip! The two newest BIGFOOT race trucks were hard to beat on the track and would thrill thousands of Caribbean monster truck fans over two different weekends of shows!
As the 2012 racing season finally comes to a close, Team BIGFOOT would like to thank the millions of monster truck fans across the world for making it an unforgettable year! 2013 is going to be even bigger!
