We love race trucks, like, really love race trucks. And the Trophy Truck, the vehicle that runs in Score International’s top-tier Unlimited Class, is the alpha of the species. For the past several years, the race organization has had a presence at the SEMA Show, residing in the lot in front of the South Hall. Adding to the fun, qualifying for the organizations pinnacle race, the Baja 1000, is held on a custom-built course at the Las Vegas Speedway, about 30 minutes north of the convention center.

In the past, there have been more trucks on display, but we’ll take whatever we can get. Getting up close and personal with nearly a dozen of these amazing 800hp, 5,000-pound machines is always a treat. With nearly 3 feet of suspension travel, Trophy Trucks are able to glide across the roughest desert terrain at speeds approaching 130 mph. If you’ve never had the chance to see them in person, you are missing out.

Qualifying saw 29 out of this year’s 37 entries in the class compete for starting position (those electing not to qualify will receive a position in a random drawing). Veteran racer Ricky Johnson took the top spot, completing the 1.2-mile course in just 1 minute, 51.92 seconds. Following in Second was Luke McMillin, with Robby Gordon rounding out the top three.
