(WHEATLAND, MISSOURI) -Saturday Night the E3 Spark Plugs Monster Truck Nationals roared into Wheatland, Missouri and crushed every obstacle on the infield of the Diamond of Dirt Tracks. The night kicked off with a Party in the Pit with the Big Foot, Lucas Oil Stabilizer, Chalkboard Chuck, Star Marshal, The General and Big Foot #1 on display for photos with the drivers and autographs. Sergeant Smash thrilled fans with a ride-a-long experience. MOTO-X stunt drivers met with fans, signed autographs and gave everyone an up close look at their extreme bikes.
Following the National Anthem, a special appearance by Big Foot #1 on the track surprised fans as Forrest Lucas took a lap around the track in the famous blue Ford. Owner and Founder of Lucas Oil Products, Forrest Lucas hopped out of the Original Monster Truck and waved to a cheering crowd. In the first round the Lucas Oil Stabilizer won the crowds roar and took the win. In some of the most exciting parts of the event, stars from the MOTO-X Stunt Bike Aerial Team shocked the crowd with extreme freestyle stunts and tricks. In the finale of the night the Freestyle Ride, Big Foot wowed the crowd and claimed the top spot.
