Check Out this Dodgers Themed Trophy Truck

I don't know anything about racing, but what I do know is that this 'trophy truck' (Is that the right term?) is the coolest thing I've ever seen.

Featured is a recently built Jimco trophy truck dubbed 'Fastball' that is owned by one of the Dodger owners -- Bobby Patton. Per Jonathon Klein at The Drive:
Built ahead of the 2019 season, the Jimco trophy truck is affectionately known as “Fastball” and sports (get it) a Dodgers-themed blue livery with white Dodgers lettering. The Jimco-built machine was finished last November, but has only recently seen action in the San Felipe 250 earlier this month. The chassis was built in-house by Jimco and features a 125-inch wheelbase and a 92-inch track width. Powering the 5,100-pound machine is a Score Spec Chevrolet Performance LS3 worked over by Danzio Performance and backed by a 3-speed Turbo 400 built by Gearworks.

Kenta Maeda got roughed up early yesterday afternoon, as he yielded six runs during his first two innings on the mound. Per Rowan Kavner at Dodger Insider:
“I wasn’t able to locate my pitches very well. I kept struggling throughout the entire inning and the walks piled up,” Maeda told Rizzo. “I was able to get to an 0–2 count (on Contreras), but my pitch obviously caught too much of the plate.”
Contreras had hit a double with the bases loaded to drive in three during the first inning. The Dodgers would then lose to the Cubs, 7-2. Photo above via Darren Georgia/ at Dodger Insider. Go here to check out more pics from yesterdays game. Below are more links to check out:
