has been for several years now, though the 'trucks' are just pastiche
bodies pasted over more-or-less regular nascar chassis.  they aren't
even close to fullsize.  nor are the races biathlon format - race a
few laps, stop and shoot at roadside targets...

" I see quite a few trucks around where I live that give every appearence
" of being built for drag racing.

there are folks that will dragrace anything with a motor.  there's an
active bunch racing cummins diesels, the b5.9 that normally makes
300hp.  they're up to 1500hp and 3000 ft-lbs and are having difficulty
finding transmissions that will stand up, even 1/4mi at a time.

serious mud boggers will place the engine in the middle; weight
distribution counts...
