Who Can Bend Their Trucks The Most?

Every year, a very unofficial event happens in Oceano Dunes, California, and it's known as Huckfest. We're guessing that we don't really need to tell you the point of the event-whoever throws their trucks the furthest get some pretty cool swag from a few vendors like Fiberwerx, Poly Performance, and Total Chaos. Of course, everything is unofficial, but there are hundreds of judges lined up on the dunes watching the massive air taking place. Check it out for yourself next year. A specific date has not yet been set, but we will tell you that it happens sometime in June in Oceano Dunes and after seeing what goes on, we'll be there next year, too.

Bad Day In the Dunes
Talk about a bad day. This race F-150 was on its way to the Huckfest when it skied off a razorback and dropped about forty feet before landing on the front end and rolling. Both occupants actually walked away, but the driver was knocked unconscious.

Notice that the front bars aren't actually part of the engine cage-those are the remainder of the frame and tube bumper that have been turned perfectly up 90 degrees.

On the driver side, you can see that the top cap snapped off the coilover body.
