Monster truck 'Bigfoot' crushes cars at Laurel tire shop

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - A world-famous monster truck entertained hundreds of Pine Belt residents Saturday at the Laurel location of Southern Tire Mart.

Bigfoot put on a car-crushing exhibition during an annual Bigfoot Bash.

It was free show and was part of a customer appreciation event that also featured food from Hog Heaven Barbecue and lots of games and activities for kids.

"We wouldn't be here if it weren't for our customers in Laurel, Jones County and surrounding counties," said Brett Johnson, manager of Laurel's Southern Tire Mart.

"This is my rookie year," said Bigfoot driver Christian Norman. "I've actually been working on monster trucks for about eight years, until Bigfoot gave me the opportunity to drive and it's a dream come true."

Bigfoot will be featured at five other events at Southern Tire Marts across the country this year.
