Off-road truck driver Bryce Menzies will give new meaning to the term “high noon” when he launches his Pro 2 truck over a Southwest ghost town later this year. For the jump, Menzies will pilot his two-wheel drive Pro 2 short course truck, which boasts 900 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft. of torque, over the frontier ghost town located in the American Southwest.
