GET IN AND DRIVE ME IN THE MINT 400, I AM RACE READY
Little Mac… A famous truck from the 90’s factory specified and sponsored; Built for Jerry McDonald, Team MacPherson.
$1.00 (One Dollar) buys the truck with the following caveat. The buyer donates to the Safari West Foundation (501C3) whose mission is Wildlife Conservation and Youth Education.
$38,000.00 (Thirty-Eight Thousand Dollars) concludes the deal, fully donative for the buyer and one hell of allot of fun!
Little Mac entered and finished NORRA Mexican 1000 this year, with Sal Fish at the wheel both at start and finished for a 3rd place in class.
The truck is race ready in my opinion and my wallet agrees. NORRA Baja 500 ready!
Designed by Bryan Kudela and built by Jerry McDonald for the famed Team MacPherson, this truck is known affectionately as “Little Mac” due to it being the little brother of the “Big Mac” Trophy Truck. Built in 1990, it was designated chassis number 907 with the intention of racing the competitive class which at the time was a proving ground for manufacture backed mid-sized trucks.
After 26 years “Little Mac” is still winning with recent wins at 2016 Mint 400 and BITD Laughlin Desert Classic in the vintage class, as well as SNORE’s Rage at the River in 7S. “Little Mac” is another constant reminder of the era of factory race teams in off-road racing.
