A Porsche Guards Red standard cab shortbed is just a thing of beauty when it's dumped low over 22-inch wheels. Rather than take his custom Chevy to a truck show, Richard Guerrero lined up at the starting gate and blasted around our track. Taking home the Editor's Pick for bringing such a clean and stylish ride to our competition, Richard didn't baby his pride and joy like you may think. His naturally aspirated 4.8L kept him in the back of the pack for most of the day, but we never caught him wth his head down. Riding in style while still being able to toss the standard cab around the track, Richard is looking forward to adding more power to his Chevy and bringing it back faster than ever.
