Bob Chandler & Co. brought their Bigfoot 25th Anniversary Celebration to the Tennessee State Fairgrounds in Nashville on September 8-9, 2000.  My pictures turned out lousy because of the poor lighting at the old Nashville Speedway, but I decided to post coverage anyway, because this is one of the best shows we've seen all year.  Please excuse the quality of the pictures taken after dark.

The Nashville show was an incredible treat for Monster Truck Fans.  The original Monster Truck, Bigfoot 1 was there, driven by Bob Chandler himself!  Bigfoot 5, with its huge tires,  joined three Bigfoot team members of the modern racing era: Bigfoot 14, Firestone Wilderness, and Snakebite.  It was a great night of side-by-side and Chicago style MT racing, excellent Tuff Trucks, and a demo derby.  We caught the Friday night show.

Eric Tack has his own impressive list of accomplishments in Bigfoot 15.  On this tour, he drove the Firestone Wilderness body.  Firestone needs all of the good publicity it can get, with its recent tire recall problems. nash0034.jpg (35415 bytes)

Scott Hartsock brought Gun Slinger up from Florida to challenge the Bigfoot fleet.  Gun Slinger is always very competitive.

Jim Koehler rounded out the racing field with Avenger out of Michigan.  This is an exciting truck and driver.  Avenger sports an extremely slick paint job. nash0038.jpg (40515 bytes)
