LA Dodgers baseball team has its own hardcore pickup

May 1, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

The American company Jimco Racing built for Bobby Patton, the owner of the LA Dodgers baseball team (the second most popular franchise in the National League and the second largest budget in the top league baseball) pickup for the trophy. The novelty was named Fastball – this is the name of one of the most common and important shots, in which the ball flies at a tremendous speed.

The trophy car is based on the Ford F-150 Raptor pickup and painted in LA Dodgers brand colors, but there is almost nothing left from the production car. The car, prepared for the Baja 1000 off-road race, received a Fox trail suspension with a stroke of 660 millimeters in front and 812 millimeters in the rear, 17-inch wheels with bad locks with “evil” 40-inch tires BF Goodrich KR3, a set of additional LED lighting and 6.2- liter “eight” Chevrolet, modified by Danzio Performance. The unit is paired with a Gearworks three-stage transmission.

In addition, the SUV is equipped with a 300-liter “safe” fuel tank, a Kenwood radio station, a special navigation system and “buckets”.

In his first off-road race, Bobby Patton participated in the 1973 Toyota Land Cruiser and was able to take first place in the category of “vintage” cars, but only 20th in the overall standings. After that, the businessman decided to continue participating in the “Baha”, having built a special car for this purpose. Off-road was ready in November last year, but it was fully revealed only now.
