Deep in the Arizona Desert, high horsepower street trucks have begun overwhelming the street and track scene up and down the west coast. These trucks terrorized the streets and tracks throughout the West yet no proof outside of the region has ever been logged, until now. A trucks only event with the idea of housing the best drag racers, burnout performers, and showtrucks in the entire West has now been created. History will never forget the Truck War.
