Built by Rob & Brandy Phillips of PCH Rods
SEMA 2014, Rob and Brandy unveiled their 3 year project, the C10R. The buzz around this killer C10 was spot on. People couldn’t get enough of the truck, or Rob & Brandy for that matter. But what Rob & Brandy really wanted was one of the 10 remaining spots into the Optima Ultimate Street Car Invitational. The organizers handed out 9, but what about the 10th “Golden Ticket”?
Well lets just say after a few tears and some laughs Rob & Brandy found themselves right were they wanted to be - behind the wheel of their bad ass C10R at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Since then Rob & Brandy have been on a roller coaster ride - races, interviews, and sponsor promotions - and they wouldn’t have it any other way!
