Those tours are not for everyone either.Living in a transporter isn't as glorious as it looks from the outside. Big Foot is a huge corporation with multiple rigs and trucks. Same for Grave Digger. Multi million dollar operations. I'm not saying he couldn't get in,but it would take time and a boat load of money for the first one atleast.Oh yeah it could take yrs of P-B-G sandwiches too.LOL.
Agree with you on this... Nothing is easy as it sounds. But it is a very profitable sport alot of the people involed get pile of cash from full stadiums. Sponsors is not as hard to find as a normal drag car. With drag you got at least two tracks in most major areas and they race every summer weekend. Monster trucks profide a little more show for the sponsors. But that being said all monster trucks are usally self starters. But a few of the newer guys are all cash corperate builds.
P-B-G is that a peanut butter and grease sandwhich! They are may favorite.
