I'm pretty sure that everybody remembers this truck: "La Victoria" RG Ranger. And I'm just wondering about where's that truck right now. The last that I know is that was owned by Dirks&Porter and they sell it.

So, How true is that this truck is the actual Garron Cadiente's Trophy Truck?















I hope that somebody know about this. It's just Curiosity! ;)

It still races and is owned by Robbie Pierce who is the owner of Mastercraft seats. The original Mike Smith/RG coilovers off of it are in a secret location in the depths of Hemet.

Negitive... It is owned by the Staats. They raced it last years. They now have a new Jimco TT. Mastercraft does sponsor them however.

Thanks buddie, So Garron's truck is a new generation Geiser truck for sure, right?

Does anybody know who owned this truck in the mid to late 90's?

I remember seeing a truck that looked very similar to it at an Oregon desert race in either '95 or '96.

The front suspension on this truck along with the old body style makes me weak in the knees..

Didn't the truck go from Robby to Bob Ritchie (RCR Plumming)? Then it was used as a promotional thing for Panasonic and then a knife company?

Yeah I would imagine alot has been done / updated or changed. I think the Staats bought it from Dircks Porter as well. I think they (D&P) raced it at the TT 250 in 06 or07, if I'm not mistaken.

It had quite the system when it was the Panasonic show TT.

#42 - Will Staats Jr. - A Mike Smith, Robby Gordon, and Geiser built Ford Ranger truck with an F-150 body on it. It is sponsored by Mechanix Wear and Air Force One Products. It is the old Robby Gordon, Bob Richey, Robert Scarla, and Gary Dirks/Mark Porter La Victoria, RCR Plumbing, Panasonic, and Superknife Ranger.
