The Desert Toyz / Can-Am Maverick Turbo team of Cory Sappington and his brother Scott Sappington notched impressive finishes on both days at the Best In The Desert (BITD) BlueWater Desert Challenge race to capture both the side-by-side overall win and the Pro Production Turbo class victory. The Desert Toyz tandem is the first team in history to win both days at this event.


Chandler, AZ – Described as a “short course on steroids” Best In The Desert’s BlueWater Desert Challenge is different than any other race in the series. It features two full days of racing over a 26-mile, multi-loop course along the Colorado river. DragonFire’s Pro UTV team is looking forward to the unique set of challenges this weekend… and Lacrecia Beurrier’s “lucky 13″ starting position.

BITD-12-16-11The Blue Water Desert Challenge in Parker, AZ, October 11-13, hosted by the Blue Water Resort & Casino, is the fifth event in the six-race 2013 Best In The Desert “American Off-Road Racing Series”. Unlike all of the other Best In The Desert long distance races that are either a long loop race, or a point to point course, as is the Parker “425” or the recent General Tire “Vegas to Reno” courses, the Blue Water Desert Challenge is a 2-day multi-race format that features Best In The Desert’s Car, Truck and UTV classes running both days for combined results to determine the winners.
