While Todd was at Havoc, he entered the Chevy in the Sport Truck Challenge, in which trucks are judged on looks and quarter-mile performance. Todd piloted the truck down the 1320 fighting wheelspin most of the way and running a best time of 13.28 at 110 mph. Just by looking at the mph, if he had had some slicks his time would have dipped down into the 12s with no problem. When it came to judging the truck on looks, Todd's ride really shined and almost maxed out the judging sheet. After all of the sheets were in, Todd won the Sport Truck Challenge and we just had to shoot it again. I personally got to go for a ride on the way to the photo shoot, and let me tell you this truck planted me back in the seat when Todd hit the go-pedal.
This Chevrolet has it all: sweet paint, 'bagged suspension, shaved everything, and a 650-plus horsepower mill. After seven years, three owners, and a lot of work, this truck has truly evolved.

To the two Larrys (Larry Nagy Sr. and Larry Nagy Jr.) for their endless hours of help and advice, Mark Bishir and his wife Kim and daughter Paige for not complaining when he was working on the truck, Grandma for always being there, and of course anyone else who had a hand in making this truck what it is today
