Top Truck Challenge 2015 - Tow Test Coverage & VideoPosted in Top Truck Challenge: 2015 on June 9, 2015
Top Truck Challenge 2015 is officially underway at the Hollister Hills SVRA where the wildest and toughest off-road trucks battle obstacles that punish even the strongest parts.
The first event at the 2015 Top Truck Challenge is the heavyweight Tow Test where each competitor will test their rigs ability to put power to the ground all while towing an M923A2 6x6 military truck loaded with gravel weighing 40,500 lbs. up a 150 foot track which climbs 13 feet in elevation.
Competitors get one shot to pull this truck up the hill with no time limit, but once traction is lost the horn is blown and their distance is recorded. This event requires a skilled driver with the right technique and strong driveline components or this first event could be their last for the day.
