2005 Ford F-350 Super Duty - G&R Racing's Chase Truck

Any racer from Baja to Daytona will tell you the same thing: You can't win without support from your teammates. In the world of Trophy Truck desert racing, that means a fleet of chase trucks, support vehicles, and numerous people checking, rechecking, and busting knuckles to ensure your team has the best possible outcome. G&R Racing brought out one of its chase trucks during our photo shoot of its incredible Geiser Brothers-built prerunners. Here is an inside look at what they require to be successful in Baja.

Originally, this truck was born a '05 Ford F-350 Super Duty equipped with a 6.0L Power Stroke diesel engine. Ford Super Duty trucks are common in the desert because of their very powerful engines and solid towing ability. Although the team has modified much of their Ford, the engine remains stock so it retains its reliability. The last thing you want to deal with on race day is having to support a support vehicle.
