Montclair, CA: The Green Army made the march north to Reno recently for the 2nd Annual HDRA Eldorado Reno 500 in the ongoing quest to capture the top spot in the chase for the HDRA and World Championship standings. The tireless efforts of the team to prepare the truck for battle after their top 10 finish at the grueling Baja 500 gave team driver Justin Davis confidence heading north to battle a stacked field of the best Trophy Truck teams in the world. “We have worked really hard in the shop to make sure our Jimco Trophy Truck can go out and consistently run up front to challenge for the win. We showed we can win against the best at Ridgecrest and we went to Reno hoping to do the same thing.”
As with any top contending team, the preparation that began at the shop continued with pre-running. After running a few laps around the course, it became clear that rocks and the ability to make clean passes were going to be an issue and the winning team would go into the race with a solid strategy for surviving race-day. “Our BFGoodrich tires are the best and toughest tires in the world, but the only smooth part on this course is in the air,” said the #85 co-driver, Troy Holes.
