Bob Chandler’s original BIGFOOT was a crowd favorite at Ford Festival in 2019. Seeing it out on track with Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Chelsea DeNofa drifting donuts around it at speed was a homerun! This year Holley is bringing out BIGFOOT #5, officially the Guinness World Record holder for world’s tallest truck (15 ft., 6 in. tall)! Don’t miss out on seeing this truck rolling around this year!
Pro Formula Drift drivers Vaughn Gittin Jr. and the rest of the Fun Haver Tour will headline our drift demo sessions at Ford Fest! These will take place several times throughout the three-day event. Several other pro-am level and amateur Ford-powered pony cars will be onsite drifting the course with them and will be sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!
