Four Wheeler’s Top Truck Challenge, one of the most unique and challenging off-road competitions in the world, celebrates its 21st year this June to determine who is truly the best of the best in a series of wild off road truck events.

Ten competitors will square off over five exciting days at the Hollister Hills State Vehicular Recreation Area in Hollister, California. Readers of Four Wheeler submitted entries that were voted on by their peers via the magazine. One of the many highlights for the upcoming 2013 event includes two brothers pitted against each other in a Chevy versus Ford battle for family bragging rights. All participants will pull out all the stops to come home with the coveted Top Truck Challenge trophy.

The Top Truck Challenge has become legendary for its over-the-top event portfolio that is designed to be the ultimate off-road competition for both driver and machine. This year, they are dropping the Mini Rubicon event, and replacing it with the brand spankin’ new Coal Chute event. The Coal Chute utilizes a newly developed area of the Hollister Hills SVRA and will join the other six stages of competition: Hill Climb, Obstacle Course, Mud Pit, Frame Twister, Tow Test and Tank Trap. The competitor with the highest aggregate score will be crowned the Top Truck Challenge Champion.

"This is an exciting year for Top Truck Challenge,” said John Cappa, editor of Four Wheeler. "For the first time ever the readers have voted in 7 of the 10 competitors with full-size trucks. Add in the all-new Coal Chute and we should see some impressive displays of horsepower, driving skill and raw carnage!"

The Four Wheeler Top Truck Challenge will take place in early June. The event is closed to the public, however fans can get daily updates at http://www.fourwheeler.com and on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/fourwheelermag.
