GreenArmy Motorsports Debut Pro-2 Trophy Truck Team at NDRA South Point Vegas 250
Race teams are formed from a myriad of different circumstances. Some teams are formed when a group of racing buddies decide to take their Saturday tradition to the next level. Others teams are formed when an amateur racer decide it’s time for their shot at the big money lime light. Team GreenArmy Motorsports however, was formed when recognized race champion Kevin Davis decided to step out of the driver seat to put his son Justin behind the wheel.
“I have been around an off-road vehicle for as long as I can remember. My dad started racing before I was born.” Justin explained. “When I was able to race at fourteen, I raced with my sister Ashley in a 1600 car. Since then, I’ve kept moving up in cars and classes, and now I’m at the top, in a Jimco Trophy Truck.”
Before he started outperforming his Trophy Truck competitors in the LOORS Pro-2 division, Justin competed in MDR, Lucas Oil Off-Road Racing Series, Best in the Desert, SCORE International and HDRA. His hard work lead to winning the 2010 SCORE Lites Championship, 2011 SCORE Class One Championship, becoming the youngest driver to win a Class One Championship back-to-back in the Baja 1000, and at age 18, becoming the youngest driver to win the Baja 1000 as a solo Trophy Truck driver.
“Using K&N products allows us the capability to enhance our Trophy Truck and run at a level that we need to be at, to compete with other top racers in the field,” Justin tells us. “I got involved with K&N by using their products through the years.” His trust in K&N was developed from experience with the product over the years.
Justin Davis, new team member Kyle LeDuc, and GreenArmy Motorsports packed up their Pro-2 Trophy Truck, and traveled to Jean, Nevada, for the NDRA South Point Vegas 250. The team was excited to debut their new Trophy Truck team for the 2013 HDRA and SCORE International Series. Justin started the race in seventh position, but half way through the race, he passed the wheel to Kyle, who skillfully drove the GreenArmy Motorsports Trophy Truck to a fourth place finish.

Rock & Roll Offroad Brings a Monster 2011 Dodge to SEMA
Recently, the Las Vegas Convention Center was turned into the custom car capitol of the world as it hosted the 2012 SEMA show. Manufacturers, racers and custom vehicles from every corner of the globe made the pilgrimage for a full week of honoring the patrons, dealers and vehicles of the aftermarket. Among the hundreds of unique cars and trucks spanning nearly every make and model was Jared Pugh and Kha Ly of Rock & Roll Offroad with a newly completed project 2011 Dodge 6.7L diesel.
R&R Offroad is no rookie when it comes to SEMA. “R&R has been a part of SEMA for 9 years now. We rely on a team to come together last minute for SEMA projects,” said Jared. “We are the experts at making a project from a dream on paper to the finished project.”
When asked about the inspiration and theme of the Ram, Pugh stated that they wanted something that hasn’t been done before. “We wanted… a vehicle that turned heads for our industry.” And Jared and his team have done just that. With modifications to the intake, exhaust, wheels, suspension, along with other extensive performance, external and interior mods, this 2011 Ram is a monster to be reckoned with.
Rock & Roll Offroad also knows how important a role quality plays in a build by using some of the best aftermarket parts available, like K&N performance air filters. “We used K&N products when we first started using an FIPK kit on a 99 Chevy 5.3 with huge gains and results.”
Rock and Roll went on to say that they were excited to continue being the best in the industry and looking forward to turning out some awesome projects and “live life to the fullest.” R&R Offroad’s Dodge can also be seen in select issues of 8Lug magazine among other industry periodicals.
