With the start flag drop on the Henderson “250” just hours away, here’s an update on the Trick Truck Challenge Cup. Best In The Desert is proud to announce that the Trick Truck Challenge has been a huge success for the 2012 racing season.  Twenty (20) of the best off-road competitors in the world put in an additional $5,000 for prize money to be paid out to the 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place Trick Truck winners in each of the six Best In The Desert races. Beginning with the 2012 Parker “425”.

The prize money added up to $100,000 to be paid out and even more will be paid out as a Year-End Bonus to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place year-end winners.  Now that is some serious money to take home by racing Best In The Desert; plus the Best In The Desert payback class money, any way you look at it the Trick Truck 1st Place winner is going home with a lot of money!

Additionally, several  sponsors stepped up and offered the following contributions to the year-end bonus money:
1)  TSCO – $10,000
2)  Jimco – $2,000 to 1st Overall Year-End Trick Truck champion if wins in a Jimco Truck.
3)  Geiser – $5,000 to 1st Overall Year-End Trick Truck champion if wins in a Geiser Truck.
4)  MasterCraft – $2,000 to 1st Overall Year-End Trick Truck champion if wins using MasterCraft Seats.
5)  Racer Engineering – $5,000 to 1st Overall Year-End Trick Truck champion if wins in a Racer Engineering truck.
6)  Camburg – $20,000 to 1st Overall Year-End Trick Truck champion if wins in a Camburg KINETIK built truck.

The Trick Truck race is still up for grabs and will be one of the closest races ever followed by all race enthusiasts.  In Best In The Desert a racer must start all five races, but can throw out their lowest points.
