Protruck's other Rick Johnson, Rick L. of Oak Hills, California, went against the grain and bolted a Toyota I-Force V-8 in his Protruck chassis. Though smaller in displacement than the Ford, Chevy, and Dodge offerings, the Toyota mill makes up for it with newer technology, such as dual overhead cams with four valves per cylinder. Johnson occupied his Protruck-mandated Mastercraft Pro-36 seat for most of the race, sharing driving and codriving duties with teammates Ken Nance, Lee Perfect, and Louis Chamberland. The quartet took the Toyota Protruck to 12th in class.
