    Team BIGFOOT & Firestone Will Debut New Look at Indy 500

    The new look Firestone BIGFOOT that will debut at the 2011 Indianapolis 500.

    (Hazelwood, MO – BIGFOOT 4×4 PR) – Team BIGFOOT will debut an all-new paint scheme in Indianapolis this week in celebration of Firestone’s 100 Years of Racing. The truck will stand as one of the focal points of Firestone’s corporate exhibit in the garage area of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which will be open for viewing May 9th through the 31st. This all-new paint job features plenty of red, white, and blue as well as a checkered flag motif and custom Firestone graphics that pay homage to both Firestone and BIGFOOT’s legendary racing history.

    “We’re thrilled to present BIGFOOT to all of the great racing fans from around the world who will be in Indianapolis to enjoy the Indy 500 and all of the surrounding activities,” said BIGFOOT Vice President Bob Trent. “Firestone has taken BIGFOOT to some awesome places over the years, and Indy is certainly one of our favorites.”

    He went on to add that “BIGFOOT will also be bringing all of its fine sponsors to Indy as well. In some forms of racing, special paint jobs don’t always incorporate all of a team’s sponsors. That is definitely not the case with our Firestone 100 Years of Racing BIGFOOT. Our entire logo and decal placement is consistent with that found on our touring fleet of competition and display BIGFOOT trucks. This is just one of the many ways for us to say ‘thank you’ to the fine companies that help keep us atop the industry.”

    BIGFOOT helps celebrate Firestone's 100 Years of Racing.

    The Firestone 100 Years of Racing BIGFOOT paint scheme will appear in Indianapolis atop the team’s BIGFOOT #8 chassis, which to this day stands as one of the most successful and vital monster trucks of all time.

    “BIGFOOT #8 has one of the richest racing histories in our fleet of trucks,” said Trent. “We felt that it would be fitting to represent our team, our industry, and all of our sponsors with one of the most important trucks in history. We hope to see everyone there!”

    Monster Photos – Monster Jam – Indianapolis, IN 2011

    featured_photo_indy_cp11

    Monster Jam made its annual visit to downtown Indianapolis last weekend as 14 trucks competed in racing and freestyle at the beautiful new palace that is Lucas Oil Stadium. Fittingly, it was Monster Jam driver Linsey Weenk who took the big racing win in Feld’s new Lucas Oil sponsored truck, the Crusader. Freestyle would see strong runs from several drivers but when defending Freestyle World Champion Charlie Pauken is on his game, there is no stopping the Grave Digger as Chuckie took the big win.
