EnerSys will continue as a primary sponsor of the Bigfoot monster truck team in 2016.
A long-time sponsor of Bigfoot 4x4 Inc.’s racing and display program, Odyssey batteries provide the rugged dry-cell batteries found in the Bigfoot’s entire fleet of monster trucks, haulers and shop vehicles.
“The punishing conditions of a monster truck race put Odyssey batteries to the test. Over the years we have seen Odyssey batteries deliver optimum performance and reliability when exposed to these punishing conditions,” says Maria Orlando-Krick, marketing content and sponsorship manager at EnerSys.
Odyssey batteries feature a three- to 10-year service life and two-year storage life at 77 degrees Fahrenheit (25 degrees Celsius). They are vibration resistant, classified as “non-spillable” by the U.S. Department of Transportation and include a limited two- to four-year full replacement warranty.
“The partnership between Bigfoot and Odyssey batteries has led to many championships for our fleet of race trucks,” says Bob Trent, Bigfoot vice president. “This partnership even led to the world’s first and only all-electric monster truck, Odyssey Battery Bigfoot #20, which will continue to appear at select events throughout 2016.
The Odyssey battery logo can be seen on all of the Bigfoot monster trucks, transporters and crew shirts.
