WITH ALL THE CONSTANT CHANGE AND UNCERTAINTY GOING ON IN THE WORLD TODAY, MEDIA COMPANIES AS A WHOLE ARE LEARNING TO QUICKLY PROCESS THE NEW GUIDELINES AND PROACTIVELY EVOLVE THEIR BUSINESS MODELS TO STAY AHEAD OF THE CURVE. Street Trucks is no different. To provide you with more content and less downtime, we have made investments in many different platforms, including digital-exclusive editorial, unique video and now live streaming! We have already produced our first live-streamed event during the 2020 Pro Touring truck shootout in Bowling Green, Kentucky. We ran into a few snags, but by the end of the weekend we had a great stream up and running with live commentary and embedded commercials. We were able to stream for the entire weekend, switching between four separate camera angles with graphic…

IN 2017, RANDALL ROBERTSON, FOUNDER OF RTECH FABRICATION IN COEUR D’ALENE, IDAHO, DEBUTED A CHEVY TRUCK THAT KIND OF CHANGED EVERYTHING. Named The Duke—an homage to John Wayne—the Cumminspowered ’72 crew cab with the stubby nose is big, bold, uniquely stylish, and has tons of swagger. If a truck could single handedly stop a fistfight in a saloon or steal your girl, The Duke would be the one to do it. “He’d just finished The Duke and it was at SEMA,” recalls Ramiro Rodriguez, who commissioned Randall to build another four-door a year or so prior. “Randall invited my brother and me to go see The Duke. Man, it’s a beautiful truck. “Well about a week later, Randall forwards this photo to me,” he continues. Someone Photoshopped The Duke as a Blazer,…

These were first released to the public in 1976, which was an exciting time because buyers were able to custom order their truck with multiple wheelbase options, as well as interior, wheel and other…
