Father Knows Beast

Eight years before Stephen King invented Christine, a 1958 Plymouth Fury with a taste for blood, monster-truck icon Bob Chandler was transforming his used 1975 Ford F250 into the aptly named Bigfoot. More than 30 years later, Chandler and the original Bigfoot will make a guest appearance at Monster Truck Thunder Drags. Though Bigfoot 1 -- now a bit long in the intakes -- won't be competing against younger, hungrier mechanical beasts like the new Bigfoot, Jurassic Attack, Raminator, Ramunition, and Predator, there'll still be plenty of carnage. Don't you fret.

A pre-mayhem autograph session kicks things off at 4 p.m.

Sat., Sept. 8, 7:30 p.m.
