In the early days of stock car racing people drove their family car to the race track and raced it! There was a saying, "ya run what ya brung!" He runnin' what he brung!

Looks like the front is already loose from the frame.
I do believe that is one of the photoshop pictures from his facebook page.
That 10' camper would be lifting the front end of the truck.

It does appear to be attached to the frame, but why is the truck still sitting level? Photoshop?

Is that a shovel propping up the back in the original picture?
