Fans of the second-generation Ford Raptor’s fancy new aluminum body and turbocharged 3.5 V6 Ford EcoBoost engine can forever mark the 2016 Mint 400 as the truck’s first real off-road racing “victory.” It ran in a one-truck class, but that’s only because nobody else just did what Ford did.

Ford maintains a 66 mile course of sand and slag to test their trucks off-road, and after whipping the 2017 Ford Raptor through it they say the new aluminum-bodied 3.5 liter turbo truck made a 25 percent improvement on lap times over the old 6.2 V8.
