Bob drove Bigfoot on 66" tires at the Silverdome. Bigfoot 8 was the first truck to use a tube chasis and was banned by USHRA for a half a season so other teams could catch up with their technology. There were the Battle, War, and Return of The Monster Trucks TV specials in the 80's Battle being the first side by side race on Television. There was also the TNT Monster Truck Challenge in 1988 89 and 1990. This would become the Penda Points Series. Then there's Monster Wars in 1995 which would become part of TNN Motor Madness which would become MONSTER JAM in 1999. There's alot you missed dude.

Funny thing is Snakebite is just Bigfoot with a different body for when they had two Bigfoot’s booked for the same show. Also I’d love a black Holden HQ Monaro body on a mister truck. That would be mad. Probably named something weird like Jörmungandr or something like that.

1992 was not the first televised monster truck race. There had been a national monster truck series televised since 1988, usually on TNN. It was called the Renegade TNT Monster Truck Challenge. Also Bigfoot was the originator of using offroad shovks and tube chassis trucks (Bigfoot 8 built in 1989). It was also the first truck ever designed completely by computer.
