You also probably know there’s a driver, “88 Mike” Morgan, who’s bringing the old driver-owner spirit to his built-from-ground-up Powershift Performance race team, sponsored by Winrock Truck Parts and Equipment but also in search of more sponsorship dollars to keep it going well beyond race 1 in New Jersey come April.

In the podcast here, he talks further vehicle specifications, including some elements you can see in the pictures (from our new-ish Instagram feed) below the podcast, as well as the truck’s special grille — where it came from, and what it means to him and all those who’ve got a part in the truck going forward.

Among recent additions to the unit: lightweight but durable aluminum wheels.
