Record-Setters Tanner Foust, War Wizard Surge Into BMS
Anyone with an appetite for monster jumps and fast-paced thrills can satisfy their hunger Saturday, July 20 with a ticket to Bristol Motor Speedway's Thompson Metal Monster Truck Madness presented by Beef O Brady's and inaugural Global Rallycross event.
With a field expected to feature record-breaking Rally driver Tanner Foust and War Wizard, monster truck's fastest machine, this unique event and custom-designed courses guarantee attendees witness the excitement of big air and breakneck speeds.
Foust, who holds multiple world records including longest jump in a four-wheeled vehicle, leaps into the Bristol bullring as one of GRC's most decorated drivers boasting three U.S. rallycross championships and three X Games gold medals. Currently third in points with two wins in 2013, he enters the World's Fastest Half Mile looking to improve upon his bronze-medal finish at last month's Munich X Games.
After Foust and his fellow GRC negotiate the mixed-surface, high-banked circuit, monster trucks stomp onto the track primed for destruction. Hometown hero War Wizard piloted by Bristol, Tenn.'s Randy Moore takes center stage for the event's initial racing segment, consisting of two qualifying rounds and a final elimination. With a body design that pays homage to Moore's former drag racing machines, War Wizard's world-record-setting speed of 96.8 mph makes him one of the favorites to claim the title of quickest around the course. Once the racing champion is crowned, trucks return to the track bent on laying waste to any obstacle in their path in the sport's most popular segment - freestyle.
Action on the track is bookended by opportunities for guests to get up-close-and-personal with the stars of GRC and Monster Truck. Jumpstarting the event is a Monster Truck Pit Road/GRC Paddock Party at 2:30 p.m. and the evening is capped with a post-race pit party. A ticket to the Saturday, July 20 event provides unparalleled access to the drivers and their awe-inspiring machines.
