(Photos by Charles Wickam) – Engines are dumb. We don’t mean it like that, they’re cool and interesting but ultimately they don’t care what they are bolted into and making power for, right? It’s us lunkheads that make things tough on ourselves and that is why we dig these photos from the 2015 Houston Performance Truck Shootout at Royal Purple Raceway in Houston, Texas so much. These guys are going fast the hard way! Rather than choose some slippery looking late model body they are in big boxy rigs with the aerodynamics of a house and they are making lots of power to run them down the quarter mile as quickly as possible.
From the little wheels up trucks like the killer above or the tire smoking fury of Larry Larson’s 3,500hp beastly creation below, there was a little something for every truck lover at this event. Rather than beating on that point, do us a favor and click on the link below to see the photos!
