FINALLY, WE HAVE A Pro Touring race under our belts—a race that included live-event streaming and editorial coverage in the same weekend. It’s tough to take on new tasks, and when it’s in the public eye, criticism comes from every possible angle. This kind of feedback is expected, and so we take what we can and mold our process ever so slightly for a more engaging and enjoyable experience. Give it some time, and the process becomes so smooth that you actually look forward to each and every event. But how does this benefit the hardcore readers who don’t have time to watch these events all weekend? Let us explain. By teaming up with event promoters and getting in deep with clubs and builders around the country, we have the opportunity to…

baba yaga

IN THE VERY FIRST JOHN WICK movie, the titular assassin was compared to a mythical Russian creature called “Baba Yaga,” or “the boogeyman.” It was a man who would stop at nothing to defeat the enemy and strike fear into anyone who would dare test him in the future. You can’t write a better script for a fun weekend action flick, but for Preston Folkestad of Des Moines, Iowa, that’s just an average weekend at the racetrack battling it out with the other drivers who want his blood. OK, maybe I am getting a little carried away, but these races are intense! Preston knew right from the beginning that he wanted a race truck first and foremost, but he didn’t realize what kind of monster he would end up with seven…

the silverado60

With his truck in tip-top condition, all he’s worrying about now is working hard in the shop so he can get out on the road and enjoy his downtime in the driver seat. While there are some improvements he’d like to make to it eventually, his C10 has taken him to a new place in his personal life and career that he absolutely loves. INSPIRED BY THE NUMERICAL portion of a friend’s GT40 (40-inch roof height), Bill Holt’s Silverado-badged C10 drives much faster and sits quite a bit lower than stock Chevy, which is how the Silverado60 name comes into play, as its roof, you guessed it, measures 60 inches in height. Not everybody knows by that Bill unofficially refers to his truck with this nickname, but the moniker does have…

pro touring truck shootout

THE FIRST ANNUAL PRO TOURING TRUCK SHOOTOUT presented by LMC Truck is in the books and widely considered a terrific success. With more than 70 competitors battling it out for the fastest times in the biggest checks, the weekend felt like it went faster than expected thanks to the non-stop racing action from sun-up to sundown. The battlefield for this build-off was in Bowling Green, Kentucky, at the world famous NCM Motorsports Park. Remember that Corvette Museum that sank into a sinkhole? Yeah, that’s this place, and now it’s fully rebuilt and absolutely stunning inside and out! Unlike most rookie events we attend, all of the pre-scheduled activities were completed without complication, and the time frames for each event were spot on with what we were told. The ability to successfully…
