​White Body Bad Luck

Although the white body was a popular look for the truck there seemed to be some bad luck associated with it. It started in Las Vegas during freestyle when on only the third hit the right front wheel broke off ending Jeremy's run early. Then in June at the televised stadium event in Philadelphia the truck had two seperate drive shaft failures. First in qualifying causing the truck to miss racing and then a second in freestyle before Jeremy even hit any obsatcles.
