GUS VILDOSOLA'S 2017 FORD RAPTOR PRE-RUNNER T he modern Trophy Truck incorporates the highest level of off-road performance technology, igniting enthusiasts and fans with the desire to drive one competition. The love for building a high- tech off-road truck is one of the reasons why Gus Vildosola, team owner, business man, driver, father, and 2015 SCORE Person Of The Year, decided to build his first race car in 1968. With many wins and races under his belt, and son "Tavo" taking the lead in the race team, Vildosola hasn't lost touch with trying to build the fastest and most technologically reliable Trophy Truck around. This is clearly evident with his latest project, this 2017 Ford Raptor pre-runner, which could arguably be one of his most impressive vehicles to date. While the Raptor isn't a competitive race vehicle, it's definitely built like one. BURIED IN THE MID-SECTION OF THE FRAME IS A DOUGAN'S 455 CUBIC INCH V8 THAT PUMPS OUT 760 HORSEPOWER.
