WARPATH

Multi-talented driver Lyle Barnett roasts the rear tires in Grant Guthrie ’ s twinturbocharged “ Warpath ” ‘ 65 Chevy C10 during final eliminations at Duck X Productions ’ Lights Out 13 . The two-time NHRA Pro Mod winner was asked to drive the truck in the first-ever N / T Pro Truck shootout at Lights Out , and Barnett certainly delivered . He raced his way to the final round , where he and opponent Ray Morton in “ Maximus ” both lost traction right out of the gate . Barnett was at first left behind as Morton drove off , but Barnett recovered and charged past Morton right before the finish line . Both trucks were tuned by Pete Harrell .
