CANTINA RACING PRE-RUNNER

Owner Chris Miller is kid at heart, a self made man who grew up In Fallbrook Ca. He played basketball during college and graduated with a drive to win. Years ago Chris began racing  with a pro truck and dream. He realized that he needed more resources to hang with the big dawgs. After taking a couple years off from the racing scene, he focused more on business and a plan. Chris eventually came back to what he loves, off-road racing and acquired several trucks and buggies which were all previously owned.

Chris had everything from basic buggies to fully loaded luxury pre-runner trucks, but nothing was quite perfect for this off-roading father of 5.  Miller set out to build a vehicle that could handle the rigors of Baja, with the ability to take his wife or kids along for a ride. This when he met Garret Finamore of Finamore Fab.  Finamore Fab did all the main chassis build and suspension. It then went to Vildosala Racing to get all the finish details installed.

Take a look at what came from it, an incredible Pre-Runner ready to absorb all that Baja can throw at it!
