Never in a million years did I think that Russia had rednecks, apparently though, I was wrong. What you are seeing here are a bunch of old 3.5 ton, solid front axle ZIL work and military trucks that have been manufactured in Russia for over 75 years. Now retired, these trucks have gotten a second life and are now in contention for the “ZIL-2000″ Trophy. These guys are hammering so hard that they’re actually getting all four wheels off the ground and in some cases blasting the tires off the friggin’ things. What I find amazing is that these guys are really racing balls out, bumping and grinding fenders in what looks to be a no-holds-barred race for the checkered flag. These guys are not only awesome but look as though they’re having one helluva lot of fun.
