February 2, 2017 (Pacific, MO) – When Jim Kramer, a long-time VP of BIGFOOT and a true pioneer of the entire monster truck industry, retired in 2016, it left some very big shoes to fill. We wanted someone who knows and understands the sport and BIGFOOT’s place in it, so Dan Runte was the obvious choice. Dan knows practically every aspect of the industry having spent the last 28 years in it. He has seen how the sport has progressed over the years and has been a key player in many of the most impressive feats and technological advances in monster trucks.
Dan will play an integral part of everything BIGFOOT – from the trucks to the drivers, in the shop and on the road. Expect to see him some in the pits, some in the shop, and some in the office. He may be turning a wrench, coaching a driver, or talking with fans. Dan has always been great with our sponsors and promoters too, and will continue to work with them all.
So join with us in wishing a big CONGRATULATIONS to Dan!
