Fred and the truck appeared on the hit television series Knight Rider as well as the ZZ Top music video "Sleeping Bag", as well as many other television appearances.

During this time Fred was also a spokesperson for The Race Against Drugs Program sponsored by The F.B.I. Fred & Kathy visited schools across the nation while racing his monster truck, teaching children about the rewards of not using drugs.

And as for that track record, Fred Shafer to this day still holds the Guiness World Record Long Jump in his monster truck of 141'-1". Fred also raced pro stock cars in the late 1970s. Fred retired from monster truck racing in 1997.

What's ten feet tall, weighs 10,000 pounds, harnesses 1500 horsepower and sits on tires that tower five and one-half feet tall? The answer is Bear Foot, the Dodge Ram Monster Truck that has captured three world championships. Feel the ground shake and hear the power as the Magnum-Powered Monster crushes cars and the competition right before your eyes. Mounted midway under its Dodge Ram truck body is a supercharged and fuel-injected 572 cubic inch Dodge Magnum engine, modified to run on alcohol and generating 1500 fire-breathing horsepower. The Dodge Bear Foot has won the U.S. Hot Rod Association Monster Truck world championship in '90, '92 & '93.
