    Your next five to go into the HOF


    Members do not see advertisements
    I had the pleasure of going to the MT Hall of Fame induction last year and was wondering who your next 5 inductees would be and why?

    Mine would go in no particular order

    Jim Kramer- he actually could have gone in last year but the founders had to go in first. He put Bigfoot on the map with masterful driving and was well deserving

    Rod Litzou- first national champion! Also a huge part to the history of USA-1. He actually did the white paint job on the 72 truck ( which is still all original )

    Jan Gabriel - producer and promoter who brought monster trucks to tv. Huge part in mt history to say the least.

    Diehl Wilson- has been running the Virginia Giant for about 30 years and counting

    Mr. Chamberland- need I say more?

    My TOP 5 Picks for this year:

    1.) Jim Kramer(sp?)- He had class in front of the camera, he was one of first 3 to really attack the cars, jumping, and broke so many records in Bigfoot truck.

    2.) Mike Welsh- He's did a lot for early years of MT's...He needs to be in there and was ORIGINAL Freestyle person.

    3.) Golden State - The whole team was a class act and I always loved watching Bigfoot Vs. one of their trucks because you knew it was going be close and they did not care if the truck broke.

    4.) Dennis Anderson

    5.) Allan Tura

    ????

    Why would you say Dennis wouldn't attend? I think Dennis is one of the nicest most sincere guys out there,,,NO ONE spends more time with the fans than he does,,,All the drivers are awesome, but Dennis seems to have that line that people want to say hi and shake his hand,,,,I'm a Anderson Fan from back in the late 80s, so even back then he was a class act,,,not to mention the next generation Adam & Ryan,,,even the youngest Weston is a good kid with fans as proven at WF 13,,,so I think Dennis would attend because to be put into any Hall of Fame is a HUGE HONOR and to me Dennis was and is # 1 in Monster Truckin!!

    It would be Felds decision for Dennis to go in a Grave Digger capacity. Not Dennis'
    There was once a truck pull in the astrodome in which many believed Bigfoot 4 did not leave the line. The reality of the situation is that Bigfoot 4 was chained the the astrodome and moved the entire facility 300 feet.

    Judging by who is on the selection committee, I don't think it would be too far fetched to see a Feld Motorsports presence at the Hall of Fame. Jeff Cook and company really aim to cut though the bs and politics and make it open to EVERYONE.

    I think the next 5 or more should be the fallen hero's that we have lost over the years.
