Our friends at Magnuson had a truck entered in the event, but it wasn’t this one. They must have had a VIP pass, because Thomas Stevens, a Magnuson employee, brought out his long-travel 2012 Silverado and made himself at home on both the dragstrip and the autocross course. Although he was not part of the actual competition, this lifted Chevrolet made for some great entertainment, so much so that we chose his truck to grace our newsstand cover this month! Thomas wasn’t afraid to throw the truck into full slides around corners, and also took the title for the biggest smokey burnout on the dragstrip. Let this be a lesson to any of you thinking of signing up for Throwdown 2015: Lifted trucks can be competitive!
