It was only a few brief months ago that Jesse Jones was plagued with bad luck at the Baja 500. Now it was time to settle the score. This past weekend was the 2013 Best In The Desert, Vegas to Reno. The longest off-road race in the United States. Jones and his crew made only minor changes to the #76 FOX Trick Truck to prepare for the 543 mile race across the Nevada desert.
Festivities for the race started Wednesday just North East of the Las Vegas Valley where over 50 Unlimited race vehicles staged for time trials. A 4.2-mile course was set up in the middle of the desert and after everyone attempted to set the fastest time, results would show that Jesse Jones and the #76 FOX Trick Truck would start the race 3rd off the line and the first Trick Truck out of 33.
“Starting in the front of the pack has its advantages and disadvantages,” Jones said. “We knew that we would have to have a flawless race to finish first.”
