TROPHY SUPPORT

BULLET PROOF DIESEL’S NEW BAJA CHASE TRUCK
PHOTOGRAPHY BY SHERM SINGLETON & DINA COOPER

Trophy trucks are the big dogs of the off-road race universe. The allure of 800 horsepower, 40- inch tires, and the beauty of Baja is enough to attract big names and big money. This eventually translates into non-stop progression of technology and strategy as speeds get higher. With these supertrucks raging towards the finish line, blasting through any offroad obstacles in their path, one question remains: How does the support team keep up?

Chase trucks—as the support vehicles have been termed—are the workhorses that keep racers going in the dirt. Staffed by support crew and equipped with tools, fuel, spare parts, and other equipment, these purpose-built pickups speed to pre-planned pit spots and provide whatever they can to keep the race trucks moving. Many times, when a pit stop has been completed, the chase truck hurries to the next agreed-upon pit to help the truck later in the race.

The Desert Assassins race team, headed up by pro driver Cameron Steele, has long been supported by Bullet Proof Diesel’s pit team and chase trucks. Looking to build a new flagship for the support crew, Bullet Proof Diesel’s Ken Neal purchased a 2018 F-350 in the caband- chassis configuration and got right to work on it with his team.
