Our friend and off-road phenom Christopher Polvoorde is back. This week he drops the exciting news of taking possession of his new Mason Motorsports built 6100 Spec Trophy Truck. In his latest YouTube channel video, Christopher Polvoorde shares the inside details he has been keeping secret and shows viewers a sneak peak of the new totally burly desert race truck.
“What is up?! I’ve got a HUGE career announcement that I am finally able to share with you guys. The CP94 Race Team is going desert racing!! That’s right, Mason Motorsports has been working on a Spec Trophy Truck for me over the past few months and we finally took delivery of the rolling chassis. This truck is going to be a B E A S T that will be finished up in our own shop by my crew chief Jimmy Davidson. A lot of work will be done over the next few months to be 100% ready for my 6100 Spec Trophy Truck debut at 2021 Vegas to Reno in August. Let me know what you think about this career move below. The 6100 class is super competitive so it’ll be a fun class to participate in. Any guesses on how I will do in the first race? I’ll do some sort of giveaway if someone guesses correctly where I place in my first 6100 race ever. Thank you for watching, there will be plenty more updates to come as we finish this Mason Motorsports 6100 truck in house!!” – Christopher Polvoorde

Off Road Xtreme is looking forward to seeing Christopher out in the desert racing this amazing Mason Motorsports Spec Trophy Truck. Something tells me, we will be seeing an upcoming episode of Off-Roading With Christopher Polvoorde in the near future. Perhaps testing the new truck or getting sideways at the short course racers in his Ford Ranger Pro Lite. Until then, you can tune in to the Great American Short Course Series and watch Polvoorde racing this weekend at Glen Helen Raceway.
