On this episode, Dave talks to Lightning and Holman about his show, friends in the industry, and how a little bit of right-place-right-time luck put him on the path he's on now. Heavy D also opens up about his infamous diesel emissions lawsuit and a new business foray into the world of hydrogen fuel cell trucks alongside Nikola CEO (and Sparks' personal friend) Trevor Milton.
For more on the 2022 Nikola Badger, including Sparks' own firsthand knowledge of the project, listen to the interview here and check out our industry analysis on TruckTrend.com and FourWheeler.com [link to other Nikola articles featuring Heavy D], and stay tuned for a future episode of the Truck Show Podcast, when we've got Trevor Milton himself tapped to talk about the project.
Do you agree with Sparks' reasoning as to why there's more room in the truck world for a fuel cell truck than a fully electric pickup? Let us know your thoughts in a Truck Show Podcast fan email.
