Rick Taylor sailed through the night air to win the small-truck division of the Laughlin Leap. He was no less impressive during the sunny laps on Saturday and Sunday. While we sing the praises of extended-cab trucks, standard cabs hold their own set of advan-tages. Fewer square feet of sheetmetal means fewer pounds. Lighter weight equals less strain on drivetrain parts and less work for the motor. Generally, more standard cab trucks are produced. This makes for more plentiful replacement cabs in case you run out of talent and put your pride and joy on its lid. Taylor negotiated the Laughlin course with enough talent to spare.
