What can I do with my truck? 4x4 silverado

I will admit I dont follow much desert racing but it looks like a whole lot of fun...do any guys participate in fullsize 4x4 silverados? what should I look into? I own a whipple supercharged 4x4 extended cab Z71
Would/could I actually enter in any kind of race, or am i limited to 'chasing' ? what kind of speeds can the chasers get up to?

Look up the races on Offroad.com and you will see all you want.. There are a ton of fullsize racers out there from Chevy.. In SCORE superchargers are not allowed.. I like the power they give but do you really want to FORCE small particles of dirt into your motor destroying a $2000 charger and a +$2000 engine? The more money you have the faster you go.. check these guys out http://www.terribleherbst.com/and http://www.geiserbros.com/.. They build anything up to truggies.. Best you can get.. But at about $2 mil per with R&D you need a really big money tree.. Speed is relative to how big your cahones are and how willing you are to put your daily driver on the line.. I have been up to about 80 in my toy in the pic below.. no need to go any faster yet.. Parts will break.. Have a friend that has a welder and a junk yard.. forget having a girlfriend because they will want more attention that your truck.. And by all means the first upgrade you do before going WOT off road is a cage and 4or5 point harnesses.. Accidents will happen and its best to be protected and learn your vehicles capabilities stock.. Then upgrade engine, suspension, body, tires as money permitts..
BTW the prerunner list down lower is starting to wake up a little .. Go there..
