September 23, 2016 (Pacific, MO) – For the second year in a row, Larry Swim and the Summit Racing/Lucas Oil/Firestone BIGFOOT is your 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals Racing Champion! Just like every past year, the series was not decided until the final day. Larry Swim, Matt Dishman in Rammunition, and Vinny Venom in Snake Bite each had an equal chance. Venom was knocked out of contention when both Swim and Dishman made it to Round 2, which would be the round that would decide it all! The fierce competitors were pitted against each other AND tied in the Racing Points Standings at this point! Dishman and Rammunition went to the line pretty confident, as they had just won the previous 2 races, while Swim and BIGFOOT fought engine problems all day Saturday.
It appeared that the BIGFOOT® crew solved the engine problems as Larry throttled through the course, taking the win by almost a truck length!
“I’ve got to give my hats off to everybody back at Team BIGFOOT. They give me the best piece possible. This is awesome, 2 in a row! We brought it down to the wire, but that just makes it exciting for all you guys [the fans]. I can’t thank the team enough for getting me here!” said Swim.
“Not only do we have Championship Drivers, but we have a Championship Team! They have accomplished so much these past few months. I doubt many Teams in ANY industry could have handled our work load,” said Bob Trent. “We couldn’t ask for more dedicated people.”
Bob Chandler noted, “The competition in this Series is second to none! I would like to say thanks to Family Events and our competition for pushing us this hard.”
Team BIGFOOT would also like to acknowledge maybe our biggest competitor this year, Snake Bite. Whether you like Venom or not, he gives such effort, and is deservedly the 2016 Freestyle Champion!
We would also like to say Thank You to Andy, Paul, Lee, Emily and the whole Family Events staff for giving us this opportunity to run in a real race series year after year!
None of this would be possible without the help of our Sponsors, especially Firestone Tires, Summit Racing Equipment, Odyssey Battery, Lucas Oil, Traxxas RCs, and Trick Flow.
And, of course, a big THANK YOU to our fans – we truly understand that without your support, we wouldn’t be able to compete the way that we do!
