pokey What they said, usually a member of a racing team to let the real racer know the ins and outs of a long desert course.

Edit: Geoff just educated me, I guess the actual race driver pre runs the course. That makes more sense

Geoff@Bestop Just to add to this:

You pre-run the race course quickly, so you learn it. But you don't do it in your race vehicle.

So "pre-runners" need to be fast and tough.

And that makes the name appealing to marketing people for vehicles and equipment. Hence the "Toyota PreRunner" and all the others.

Desert racing is more about suspension travel and speed than it is about traction, so historically pre-runners were two wheel drive. This has changed, with vehicles like the Ford Raptor being designed like pre runners, but with 4wd.

530ktm Jimbox has it nailed down.

Mischievous Cat I don't think it's a dumb question. I've wondered that, too.

I always thought it referred to an off-road race truck painted with sponsor stickers that was caged-out with monster stingers front and rear with an angled spare tire in the bed, or something in that style.

Hmm. Something new every day.

Mr. Sinister What Jimbo said.
Also, a PreRunner can be any vehicle built to survey a rally stage, to allow the driver to "pre-run" before the race, to get to know the terrain and course layout. Typically, they are modified production pickup trucks, and not purpose built rigs for racing.

GrassKicker Toyota made a "PreRunner" Tacoma truck. It is a 2wd with 4x4 suspension, looking like a 4wd.

Stupid Blonde Question of the week....

Ok, thinking I may make this a weekly feature, since I always have stupid questions...
I always read about "PreRunners". What the heck is a PreRunner?

Thank you, told you it was a stupid question....
