I searched for a thread with current chase racks. Only older threads popped up. I want to have mine done for Vegas to Reno. I figured some of the older racks have morphed. Some of the newer racks might not be posted. Please post up some pics for ideas. It's not desert racing but chase trucks are a big part of racing. I'm torn on ideas......

Same boat right now! I scoured the interwebs and found quite a few but curious to see what this thread turns up. Our big thing is getting tires out of the bed and I'd say most importantly keeping fuel secure!

Ours is pretty basic but very functional. Can hold 4 tires and basket over the roof to hold all sorts of things. Really freed up the bed with this design.

I am thinking 2 tires mounted on each side. Generator and small welder up front low centered. And a way to strap dump cans in. Leaving room for a barrel or whatever in the middle of the bed towards the rear. A utility bed would be sweet, but I have a short bed and a small budget!

A lot more trucks have been going the full length rack route. Have you had any issues with the jack being mounted vertically? Also how useful has the e-track been? I recently bought a utility bed and I'm thinking of mounting some to the bed portion - trying to decide if its worth the premium over a few welded in tie down points.


We used this at the 1000. It worked awesome, and E Track works incredible. We have it in all of our chase trucks. Depending on how your load is situated each time, you can adjust your tie down points. We built this rack to be tall enough for dump cans, and they hauled really nice at the 1000.

We have E track in our service bed and i prefer it over a generic mounting. The E track itself is cheap...its the mounting loops that get expensive.

Are those better than these? 3.99 at uscargocontrol.com. They also have those same straps you showed for $3.99.

I use both in the trailer and they are good for different things. The all metal ones are perfect for holding flash lights and other similar items.

Thanks for the few posts. I now have a good plan going forward. The etrack idea is awesome, I will incorporate that for sure. On McMasters web site I saw they have bags that mount to the track. That would be good for rags or trash... Lots of ideas now! I do have a couple questions. 9rocky, did you use regular angle to mount to the bed? And what diameter tubing are you guys using. Being a buggy guy I'm planning on 1-1/2 .120 wall.

On another note I am suprised this thread got moved so quick. When there are threads about politics, schools and reality tv in the "race" section. This thread will now not get the exposure in this section. Oh well, rant over. Thanks again for the ideas!!

I thought the same thing... It also probably would've gotten you a lot more pictures out there. Not my website, not sure if I helped, but I sure learned some things.
