Dan Runte & BIGFOOT Reclaim Monster Truck World Speed Record

Monster truck legends Dan Runte and Team BIGFOOT have reclaimed the World Record for fastest speed by a monster truck this weekend at the ADRL Summit Racing Equipment Ohio Drags IV at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.

This record has changed hands several times over the past couple years with Randy Moore and War Wizard first breaking Dan Runte & Team Bigfoot’s mark of 69.3 MPH by way of running a speed of 84.382 MPH in late 2005. Runte and Team Bigfoot reclaimed the record last year after running 84.49 MPH only to have Kirk Dabney and Extreme Overkill take it away only a month later with a speed of 84.92 MPH.

Team BIGFOOT traveled to Norwalk this weekend with the goal of retaking this record and would have two chances, one each night Friday and Saturday to make it happen. Runte charged down the track Friday night reaching a top speed of 86.06 MPH and retaking the crown! With still another opportunity to put the record further out of reach, the team improved upon the setup and Saturday night Runte and Bigfoot #16 ran an incredible 86.56 MPH to break the record once again!

TMB sends a big congratulations out to Dan Runte and Team Bigfoot on their great accomplishment this weekend in Norwalk. Our own Colby Marshall and Paul Harry were on hand for the event, so be watching for photo and video coverage coming soon.
