The No. 28 BFGoodrich / MasterCraft Safety Unlimited Truck of Steve Olliges and Jonathan Swift bested a field of 11 other competitors last weekend to take the win at SNORE’s Battle at Primm in the premier Unlimited Truck class and second overall. Jonathan Swift, son of racing legend and Ford Rough Riders driver John Swift, drove on Saturday and put the team’s new Geiser Brothers truck second in class, erasing any doubts about whether he inherited the racing gene from his father. “Our MasterCraft Safety 3G suspension seats and Impact! by MasterCraft harnesses kept me secure over the rough course and really let me focus on just driving the truck,” Swift commented after the race.
Olliges took over driving duties of the BFGoodrich / MasterCraft Safety truck on Sunday and continued the consistent pace set by Swift. “Our Fox Shox 4.4-inch bypass shocks worked perfectly right out of the box!” Olliges exclaimed. The 12-mile course at Primm is notoriously rough and crowded, but Olliges was able to work his way through traffic and pick off his competitors one by one. “We didn’t have any flats from our BFGoodrich tires and Trailready beadlock rims,” an enthusiastic Olliges remarked. “Everything clicked this weekend.”
The next race for Olliges is Best in the Desert’s Silver State 300 on April 29-30, where he will once again team up with Jonathan’s father John Swift. The duo previously won the Silver State 300 in 2008 and intends to keep the BFGoodrich / MasterCraft Safety No. 28 winning streak alive.
