Mega Force.

Killer pics. Interesting to see the 48" Bigfoots and no 66" (unless you just didn't take a pic). Skoal Bandit, Thunder Beast...I love those trucks.

Awesome pics... it's great to see some more of Kirk Dabney's Thunder Beast (there aren't too many out there on the internet, that I've seen)

The blue truck is Mega Force, owned by Kevin Dabney.

I did not know that the camaro was named Thunder Beast until years later. I had already given that name to my own monster truck.

Definately good stuff there, I liked it when Blue Thunder was Thunder Beast, but I've always liked your Thunder Beast better. But ya, nice to see some more oldschool pics.

Adam, any more information on the Kong/Bigfoot collision, I've never heard of this.

That description sounds more like a show in the Astrodome.

I'm assuming we're talking about the Yellow King Kong and not the original one, right?

p.s. Jason, any luck ever finding Mr. Gabriel's book he was talking to me about the one day?

Question!

In Return of Monster Trucks when they are showing 2 minute clip of all the different monster trucks there is 5 second slip of Destoryer 1 crushing cars. Is that from this show? To me looks like it from what I can remember off top of my head. If so there might be footage in USHRA vaults.

Here is the clip...it is the very last thing shown on this YouTube clip, from :54 - :59

I am thinking this isn't the same event. But, I am sure that all of it is in the USHRA vaults.

Hey BiteMeStudio,

I was thinking usually when I book a show I go right to PR (Public Relations) or Sales Person. I would go to USHRA website look for contact information send them nice letter and show them your AWESOME website and what your plans are. And see if they would contribute to the cause? Worst thing they could do is say "No." But its worth a try.

Your friend,

Tim Dudley
