The Building of a Trophy Truck
What does it take to build, repair, and maintain a professional Trophy Truck (aka trick truck)?
These custom built trucks will set you back $1M or more, not including the cost of high-octane racing fuel, race entry fees, etc. They must withstand punishing desert terrain and scorching heat at speeds up to and over 120 mph – mile after mile, for up to 1,000 miles or more. The vehicle must be built of tough materials that can last for the entire course, including chromoly steel tubing for the chassis, chromoly ends on suspension limiting straps, and forged wheels.
