2nd Place
At last year's THROWDOWN event, Kyle Feebeck became known as the quiet guy with a heavy right foot, and he returned this year to reinforce that reputation. His orange Silverado was even faster this year, thanks to a new nitrous kit, transmission swap, and improved suspension. With 440 hp on tap, Kyle did well in both speed stop and drag events, placing First and Fourth, respectively. His truck's sudden power delivery made the autocross more difficult, but his nimble driving earned him Third Place in the slalom. For a regular guy in a low-budget truck, Kyle continued to amaze us this year by climbing the ranks to Second Place overall. Only an all-out race truck could defeat him, and that speaks volumes about both truck and driver.
