For the most part, Trophy Trucks are synonymous with high speeds and deep whoops. You usually don’t picture them on tight, technical motocross-style tracks. However, the minds behind the Dirt Tour and 212 Land put on one heck of an event where they blended Trophy Trucks and a motocross track. By the looks of things, the truck drivers were right at home.
SAN ANTONIO, TX (November 30, 2016) – Customers of VP Racing Fuels will enjoy a whole new user experience when they visit its newly redesigned website, according to Chris Wall, Chief Marketing Officer for VP Racing Fuels. “Between our 70+ blends of race fuel and the new product lines we’ve launched in the last several years, customers sometimes had difficulty finding the product information they were looking for,” Wall said. “Our new platform is clearly segmented between product lines and applications so it will be easy for customers to zero in on the most appropriate VP product to meet their needs, whether it’s race fuel for their dirt bike, a small engine fuel for their chain saw or a fuel system cleaner for their street car.“

One of the great things about SEMA is that it gives automotive enthusiasts an opportunity to get close to all the action. In the case of the people in this video… REAL close! The action involving Trophy Truck demos at the show were to highlight short-course off-road racing and demos for the SCORE Baja 1000 festivities at the show leading up to qualifying for this year’s race (see results here). Props to Patrick Clark for cutting it close but still keeping his Trophy Truck / Pro 2 race truck under control.
