Heres a 20 minute ride with Kyle in the SMT 7s Ford Ranger from off the start line at the HDRA King 250.
It was one of the best battles we have had to date in our truck until we lost the water pump at the end of lap one.
Got give it up to Hanna #744 for the win in class and who rode our rear bumper the whole first lap and also to Burman #741 who came in second. Those two trucks run really well !!

Awesome footage! Nice to hear the truck working instead of music.

*Toofarnorth, it looks like auto-focus in the cam kinda plays with the perspective.

The camera is mounted on the front cab V-Brace, sorry we could not get this to upload in HD so the image is not all that…
unfortunately the rear view camera didn’t get set in time or we would have had some great footage of Hanna all over the rear of the truck!

Thanks for watching, now come on out and race with us when you can :)

Thanks for posting your vid!

What kind of engine do you guys run? Whatever it is, it pushed you up the gasline road a lot quicker than our 4.0L OHV did for us. From the time you got on the gasline road to the crest of the hill before Pit A it took you 1:25 -- that same section took us 1:42. That's a huge difference over such a short section. Time to re-gear our truck!

They run an Esslinger 4 cylinder! I'm sure Steve will chime in and tell you more.
