Thats freakin lame!
Was it builder error or driver? (NOT trying to start anything)
Maybe I'm just naive, but it seems to me the only two options should be builder error or part failure. I'm under the impression that if built properly, there isn't anything a driver can do (within reason!) that could be blamed for a fire like this. Should be able to toss it...slam it...drive it through a brick wall and still not have to worry about a fire. Thoughts?

Of course this is coming from someone who couldn't fabricate a paper weight...

... can something like this even be fixed or is the truck chassis totally destroyed due to fire/heat?

Does Voss still have their other truck? maybe they will race that at the Mil....... Sure is a bummer deal for the team. Thank goodness the drivers and co-dawgs are getting out of these little carbques!!!

Yeah this really sucks, my first race EVER driving I broke a rear shock tower and we forgot a welder and Jason let me use theres to get back in the race. I hope the chassis isnt destroyed and they can get it back together and racing

I build a Trophy Truck list on Puro Off Road at the moment and wrote all Teams info requests on their trucks - below is original statement Jason Voss in email to me:

This is a brand new truck that we just built. It has only been raced once just last weekend at the Bilek 300. However the truck did catch fire and burnt pretty bad. We will have it rebuilt for the Baja 1000 this year.
