you might not can tell but its a very small stadium and there wasnt really room for em to let it rip, so it was kind of crappy, BUT my boy thinks its the coolest thing on earth so it was all worth it

Thats great to see a classic like big foot is still in action. I remember back when I seen bigfoot when I was a kid. Man that was back in like 1982 or 83. Anyways that was a while ago. Nice pictures Stump thanks for sharing looks like a great time.

I just wish BigFoot and Monster Jam didn't have there differences. Now Big Foot doesn't get the coverage he once got back in the day.

After working several Monster Jam shows (4, 2 in Nashville and 2 in Atlanta)and watching the Bigfoot/ MTRA? shows, the USHRA puts on a better show and is safer for the crowd.

I.E. on USHRA, shows, no one is allowed on the floor while the trucks are at speed, the first 6-8 rows are unccupied as a safety zone. Any drivers who wish to sit in their trucks while others are competing must stay buckled into the trucks.

While this may not seem like a big deal to most of you, kids love these trucks and the first and foremost thing is to see the no one gets hurt at these events. It's all about fun and entertainment.

I also have nothing against Bigfoot, they, Bob Chandler, was one of the pioneers of Monster Trucks and also of the RII,(Remote Ignition Interupters) which is used by both the Bigfoot organization and USHRA.

For those of you who don't understand what a RII is, it is a ignition interrupter that is mounted in the truck which will kill the ignition to that truck remotely by radios,(Walkie Talkie's) that officials have, these are used in case an official thinks a truck is out of control or rolls, these are activated immediately in case the driver is knocked unconscious and isn't able to shut the truck off. These have a left and right lane channel in them. (IF you watch on TV, you will see a red(R) or yellow light(L) in the windsheild on the left or right side, that corresponds with the "lane" that they are using and the officials know which lane the truck is on. Trucks are not on the same channel so the wrong truck isn't shut off. Also, per USHRA rules, each truck has the RII checked before it is allowed to run. If you see a driver drive onto the track and stop, then put his arms out to the side, that is the signal that he/she is ready to have the RII checked, at which time the official will activate the RII and the vehicle should shut off, if it doesn't shut off, it is not allowed to run.

When I was with WCW in 2000, we had Tom Meentz out with the Goldberg truck, the truck could not run on the set without the RII being active and USHRA officials on hand.

FYI 2, if you take you kids to one of these events, get the Pit Party passes for your kids, this allows you onto the track before the event and you can get up close to the trucks and get autographs from the drivers.

Have fun and enjoy these shows, here are 2 pics from the 2007 Monster Jam at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. (I got to drive the Blue Thunder F-350 Tow Beast and ATV Rescue truck during Freestyle.)
