The Ultimate Rigs of UA 2010

1974 Chevy Sierra 3500
Driver: Matt Kime
Co-driver: Craig Hurd
The Hulk-inspired Chevy Sierra truck was built by Matt Kime from Yucca Valley, California. It is definitely a bruiser, and it skillfully powered its way up and over obstacles like a nimble-footed linebacker. Matt has been building this truck for over a year with just one thing in mind, Ultimate Adventure. His intensive work and long hours in the garage at night definitely paid off. His and co-driver Craig's teamwork impressed us all. These two were a great addition to the UA, and Matt blended in perfectly with the old cronies and their antics.
