1st Place

Although all of our competitors this year performed admirably, only one truck could take the gold, and it was no surprise to any of us when that truck ended up being Brad Coomer's C10. This low-slung black and white beast looked fast sitting still, and backed it up with precise handling and tire-melting power. The C10 took the podium in all five events, especially excelling in the autocross and slalom, where it earned ten points for two First-Place finishes. Despite not being the most powerful truck, its enormous sticky tires and Wilwood Ultralite brakes helped it take Fourth in the speed stop and Fifth in the quarter-mile. On top of all of this, its aggressive styling finished the job by adding more points in the show-and-shine. Brad's C10 pushes the limits of what a truck can do, and for that reason, it's easy to see why it took home the gold.
