Trophy Trucks are the fastest class of off-road racing vehicles which are designed and built to resemble modern pickup trucks. Although any truck that meets the safety standards can race the trophy truck class, they, for the most part, feature long travel suspensions and high power engines. They are intended for desert racing, and most are not street legal like their practice counterparts, the pre-runners. Trophy Trucks can reach speeds in excess of 135 miles per hour even over rough terrain. This puts them among the fastest off-road vehicles in the world. The trucks are most frequently associated with the Baja 1000 race, series that have featured trophy trucks including SCORE International, and Best In The Desert or BITD, in which they are referred to as "Trick Trucks".

Strobel Motorsports Trophy Truck 2012 Baja 500 race

If you race in the desert long enough, eventually you're going to have 1 of those days. The 2012 Baja 500 was that day for the #94, yet the entire team defined the term perseverance, finishing at around 3AM after 17 hours of battling the Baja desert.

By just getting it to the finish, the team only fell 1 spot to 4th place in SCORE Trophy Truck series points heading into the Baja 1000, well within striking distance of the points leader.
