Randy Moore To Attempt Monster Truck Speed Record At June 30 Fas Mart Street Fights
Everyone knows that fans can see a wide range of cool cars and trucks take on the quarter-mile during Bristol Dragway’s Fas Mart Street Fights. On Thursday, June 30, however, one of the most unique vehicles in the world will seek to break a speed record during Tennessee National Guard Night.
Bristol’s Randy Moore will bring his Aaron’s Outdoors monster truck to Thunder Valley in a bid to become the first monster truck driver to break the 100 mph barrier. Moore who raced Pro Mods at Bristol Dragway earlier in his career will mix his knowledge of straight-line racing with the world of monster trucks in this exciting event.
Fans in Bristol know Moore as the pilot of his famous War Wizard, but on this special night, Moore will fly the colors of Aaron’s Outdoors on his Ford F-150-bodied machine during the attempt. “Aaron’s Outdoors” is national lease ownership retailer, Aaron’s, renowned outdoor show airing every week on VERSUS and Fox Sports South.
To celebrate the evening, Aaron’s will give a $50 gift card valid for use at any Aaron’s location while supplies last. Additionally, the entire Aaron’s Outdoors team will be on hand filming Moore’s record attempt for an upcoming episode of Aaron's Outdoors. The show airs every Thursday at 12:30 p.m. ET on VERSUS and each Saturday at 8 a.m. ET on Fox Sports South. More details can be found at www.aaronsotv.com.
The attempt will gain added exposure as Matt Steele, one of the hosts of Truck U on SPEED, will be on hand to feature Moore on a future episode of Truck U. Fans should be on the lookout for Steele, also known for his Trucks Gone Wild videos. Fas Mart Street Fights will be the place to be on Thursday for anyone looking to see themselves on TV.
