winning the Best Paint Job Award at last year's Kub Kar
Rally, Trigger was thrilled to win the Truck Rodeo in
his first year as a Scout. The 11-year-old credited his
use of graphite for his big win this year. When properly
applied to a truck's wheels and axles, graphite can provide
some extra speed when coming down the track.

to turn their original ideas into souped up cars and trucks.
