Trophy Trucks will turn 25 next year. When they were first created to run in Class 1, they were awesome and soon, it was decided to create the showcase class for them, to highlight them and make it all about them. The idea was, that with a premier truck class that everyone could associate with, it would create a higher level of competition where the market would draw in bigger sponsors, manufacturer support, and Ford, Chevy, Dodge, GMC, Toyota, Nissan, etc... wold all become more involved than they had been in the past. We would see Desert Racing become a true professional autosport like NASCAR had become with its mainstreaming in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Well, what happened? Are we there? Did it work?
