Laughlin, NV
– Racers, sponsors, promoters, their families, and friends, all put in hard work to participate in off-road racing. Many of us love the beauty and stark isolation found in the remote desert but we all know those who prefer the comfort and luxury of a resort like the Golden Nugget in Laughlin. That’s why events like the Best In The Desert series Laughlin Desert Classic (LDC) in Laughlin, Nevada, have a full range of fun happenings in addition to competitive racing. The LDC had something for everyone; tough desert competition and great amenities only steps away. It’s no surprise that so many were excited to hear the Best In The Desert series was coming to Laughlin.

Our first look at BJ Baldwin's new Toyota TRD Pro Trophy Truck, which will be unveiled to the rest of the public at tomorrow night's AMA Supercross finale.

BJ Baldwin has never made it a secret that one of his idols is the “Ironman” himself, Ivan Stewart. Baldwin has done his best to emulate Stewart’s Ironman approach to off-road racing, as he’s gone on to earn one Baja 500 win and two Baja 1000 victories much like his idol – without a second driver helping shoulder the load.

Baldwin will be formally unveiled at the AMA Supercross finale in Las Vegas this Saturday as the new “Ironman” for Toyota, which has just signed Baldwin to a multi-year sponsorship. Baldwin will field a Tundra TRD Pro Trophy Truck this year in both SCORE International and Best in the Desert races.

Lake Elsinore, CA
– The RacePro Tech team was on track in more ways than one during rounds 3 and 4 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series, (LOORRS) at Lake Elsinore Motorsports Park in Lake Elsinore, Ca. First off, it’s important to be specific because the team does double duty, racing their 6100 class truck in the desert and the Pro Lite trucks of team owner and driver Justin Peck, and teammate Ray Griffith in LOORRS short course events. Secondly, big changes were made to the set-ups on both Pro Lite trucks at the beginning of the season and they are both performing as expected. With so many systems on the trucks, and so many variables at each venue they visit, the ongoing tuning development has definitely been on track.
