With the 2014 SNORE Battle at Primm off-road race happening near Stateline, Nevada in just one week, Fast-Aid and Race for the Wounded have teamed up with Green Army Motorsports to honor a Wounded Combat Veteran by having him ride with off-road racing prodigy, Justin Davis. Riding with Justin will be Retired US Army Sergeant Alex Cruz. Alex served as a crew chief in the 101st Airborne Division on Apache Longbow helicopters and was deployed to Afganistan twice during his five years of service. In 2013, Alex was medically discharged due to injuries sustained in combat. Alex is currently pursuing his helicopter pilot license and hopes to fly chase helicopters for race teams in Baja in the future.
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.
