Rod Hall Racing, formerly and still synonymous with competitive Hummers, has added a trophy truck to its arsenal. The #61 truck was finished before the Baja 1,000 and cut its differential teeth in that race, with Rod Hall and Sam Cothrun crossing the line after 32 hours and 51 minutes.
The 5,300-pound jumper is built on a Samco Fabrication tube chassis, with a 6.2-liter L92 GM motor pushed to 600 horsepower providing the power. Baer six-piston stoppers handle deceleration front and rear, and when it comes time to get airborne, three-inch Fox coilovers tackle both ends with a 14-inch stroke up front and 18.25 inches in back.
The Hall Racing Hummers are still in the game, but this one will be going for overall wins from now on at races like the 2011 Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, Australasian Safari and Baja 1000.
