San Clemente, CA -- Hot off a top 10 finish at the M.O.R.E. Freedom 250 three weeks ago, Azuñia Racing rolled in to Sin City with a full force effort to conquer Best in the Desert’s Vegas to Reno. V2R has earned a well-deserved reputation as one of the toughest endurance races in desert racing. The heavy rains that eroded the 500+ mile racecourse days prior made conditions especially brutal on race day and the #6110 piloted by Azuñia Tequila Founder, Jim Riley, was forced to surrender after a promising start to “The Longest Off-Road Race in America.”

Las Vegas, NV - They say there is no test tougher than desert off road racing. When you think of the toughest races in off road, one that ranks at the top has to be Best in the Desert’s Vegas to Reno, (V2R). V2R is the longest off road race in the United States traveling over 530 miles through some of the worst terrain in Northern Nevada. It is a race that no team takes lightly. Taking a brand new car here is gutsy; taking that car to a second place podium finish is incredible. Coleman Motorsports beat all but one of the 28 other competitors at V2R in their first race with a newly constructed Jimco Class 10.
It is well known that the Nevada desert can be just as brutal as racing down in Baja. It will suck you up and spit you out with no forgiveness. The 2014 BITD Vegas To Reno did just that to numerous teams as the 534-mile course was damaged by new rainfall creating sharp rain ruts and pulling down jagged rocks. One thing the rain did not change however was the amount of deep silt that spread through the course like an infection. These obstacles would challenge the Banning team but it wasn’t without a hard fought fight that they would either finish or have to load up.
Las Vegas, NV – You would think that the longest off road race in the United States, Best in the Desert’s Vegas to Reno (V2R), would be won by a measured, conservative pace. Due to the level of competition in the Trophylite Racing Series, that wasn’t the case. After a long day of racing that included numerous lead changes, the eventual winner was determined after a desperate sprint for the finish. Known more for its high speed sections, the V2R course has plenty of rocks and silt to negotiate as it runs through the desolate landscape of Northern Nevada. In an almost cruel manner, the smoother high speed sections give way to a narrow cliff-side trail made of rocks and strewn with boulders in the final 30 miles. Four drivers at the front threw caution to the wind in this section as they vied for the top spot on the podium. As PJ Guglielmo and Ben Abatti III bashed their way over the rocks on the narrow trail, Andrew McLeod and Jeff Proctor were locked in their own battle just minutes behind. In the end, it was Guglielmo taking the victory by only 15 seconds over Abatti III in second with McLeod taking third.
