BIGFOOT 4X4, Inc. and The Toughest Monster Truck Tour “Light It Up Blue” in 2015
BIGFOOT #20 – The world’s first and only battery-powered monster truck!
LOVELAND, CO (March 25, 2015) — World Autism Awareness Day is Thursday, April 2, 2015, and BIGFOOT 4X4, Inc., creators of The Original Monster Truck® and the world’s first, and only, all battery-powered Monster Truck, will again “Light It Up Blue.” This year’s event takes place at the Budweiser Events Center in Loveland, Colorado just one day before the O’Reilly Auto Parts Toughest Monster Truck Tour brings three shows on Friday, April 3rd and Saturday, April 4th! The Toughest Monster Truck Tour will feature six monster trucks including the newest BIGFOOT, Over Bored, Wild Thang, Quad Chaos, Trouble Maker and Double Trouble, plus the transforming dinosaur robot, Megasaurus and the jet-powered smart car.
The “Light It Up Blue” autism-friendly event will take place in the parking lot and will feature veteran BIGFOOT driver Jim Kramer behind the wheel of BIGFOOT #20, crushing a car in the world’s first and only all-electric Monster Truck, powered solely by 36 car batteries.
BIGFOOT #20 offers spectators all the fun of a more traditional car crush, but fans can actually HEAR the metal crunch, as the truck is as quiet as a remote-controlled toy truck! And who else could bring you this type of entertainment but BIGFOOT, the brainchild of Bob Chandler, the originator of the entire monster truck craze.
Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the USA, affecting 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys. Autism costs a family more than $60,000 per year and the figures keep growing. Autism Speaks needs your help!
BIGFOOT President, Ann Trent, said “Everyone is welcome, and we have hundreds of blue glow bracelets to giveaway. Autism Speaks needs your support!” This special event is set to take place between 6 and 7 p.m. and will offer fans not only the chance to see the world’s first electric monster truck, but the opportunity to support Autism Awareness!
In addition, Budweiser Events Center and the Toughest Monster Truck Tour will support Light It Up Blue during the weekend’s Monster Truck shows by running Autism Awareness videos.
