Bigfoot, the original monster truck is quickly leaving the competition behind on the Monster Truck Nationals Tour. In the current racing standings, driver Darren Schnell is a full 350 points ahead of second place competitor, Tail Gator and Doug Noelke. The season is still young though, and the championship is still within everyone’s grasp.
In freestyle though, Noelke is in complete control with a total of five wins to Bigfoot’s one. In the donut competition Bigfoot leads over Derick Anson and Heavy Hitter, although Anson missed the first event in Sioux City, Iowa.
Tail Gator also leads in the donut competition with four wins over Dalton Van Skyock and Predator’s one win. Denver Echtemkamp also has one victory in this competition, which he achieved in Sioux City.
The long jump competition is anyone’s game though. Bigfoot and Heavy Hitter both share 2 wins with Venom and Tail Gator both sharing one.
