PASCO, Wash.-- A twelve-year-old boy from Pasco got a surprise visit from the driver of the famous Bigfoot monster truck Friday. Sawyer Torrescano is an autistic Special Olympics athlete who got this "Monster Wish" from the company putting on the monster truck show at the TRAC this weekend and work with the Special Olympics to find kids to surprise in each city they visit.
Torrescano expressed his joy for getting to see the monster truck up close and meet the driver. "I was surprised. I was happy. I liked it. I enjoyed it," said Torrescano
Bigfoot driver Kyle Doyle told KNDU that driving is only one part of his job. "Running the monster truck show and things like that, people think that's what we're all about and that's really just a small part of what we do. The biggest part of what we do is try to make our fans happy and connect to them and that's really what visiting Sawyer and kids like him is about," said Doyle.
Torrescano's "Monster Wish" day doesn't end with the morning surprise visit. He get's VIP treatment at Friday night's show, getting to meet all of the monster truck drivers with his family.
