All Play

Owner says: “I bought my 2006 to haul my excavator from one job to the next. After 204,000 miles, it was retired to a play toy. All the wrenching is done by me; occasionally, a buddy gives me a hand. Its best pass to date is a 11.52 seconds at 117 mph. The truck has been running well so far this season, and I hope to dial it in to a 10.9 by the end of this year.”
