Fort Mill, SC – Dry, hot and sandy. Those were the words used to describe this year’s Best In The Desert (BITD) Blue Water Desert Challenge held at the Blue Water Casino in Parker, AZ. This two-day race is not for the faint of heart and drivers struggled with rough terrain and extreme temperatures with the ambient temps reaching 95 degrees Fahrenheit. It wasn’t enough to hold back Team GT who dominated the 1500 Class on their General Grabbers with Harley Letner taking top honors.
The Prince Edible Race Car Co. announced in October that The Great Candy Cane Off Road Race Team is offering big-time prize money to the first and last finishers in the November Baja 1000 Sportsman truck and buggy classes. The fastest Sportsman truck or buggy will receive $1,000, and the last finisher will receive $500.
The Great Candy Cane Off-Road Race Team participated in dozens of Baja races since its inaugural run at the 1982 Baja 1000, and dominated the Sportsman class for most of the 18 years it ran. The team attributed its winning record to the unbelievable performance of eco friendly components on the 2-seat buggy, such as the licorice used to make the non-slip tires, and the home-made marshmallows used to pad the striped driver and passenger seats. It also used salt-water taffy for fan belts, chocolate syrup instead of motor oil, and lemonade as a substitute for 140-octane racing fuel. The colorful red-and-white striped buggy was unofficially clocked by an unknown person at 413.8 mph on Diablo Dry Lake during a violent rainstorm, although the manufacturer never claimed speeds higher than 42 mph.
