I met Rick Long & Big Foot!

Sorry Arlene I was going to go to your cruise today but I had to make a choice between The Cruise and Rick Long





Current driver of BIGFOOT #15

Date of birth: November 21, 1962

Birthplace: St. Louis, Missouri

Residence: Grafton, Illinois

Date of hire: October 20, 2002

Marital status / Children: 3 children

Favorite type of music: rock

Favorite food: steak

Rick was originally hired to work in the shop at BIGFOOT. Since then, however, he has moved to driving the truck. He is now the full-time driver of BIGFOOT #15. The most memorable moment of his young career was his first car crush. He also remembers his first wheelie. Rick likes to go to southern California to do shows with BIGFOOT. Who wouldn't?! The traveling and seeing new places is what he enjoys about driving. He also likes the fans. The best way for him to describe being a monster truck driver is that it is long hours and a lot of fun. When he is not working, Rick likes to go boating.

Rick's accomplishments as a BIGFOOT driver include the following:
2005 Won the MTRA Rookie of the Year Award
2006 Won the MTRA Sportsman of the Year
2007 BIGFOOT #15: Won Monster Madness Canadian Championship
