Fort Mill, SC – It was a race for all seasons this past weekend at the Best In The Desert (BITD) Henderson 250 in Henderson, NV. Teams saw blustery winds, sun, rain, sleet and even some snow during the three-lap race. With all seasons accounted for, Team GT relied on the grip and durability of their GRABBER’s to get them to the end and the famous red letter tires didn’t disappoint.
Off-road whiz, Justin Lofton, stood out among the crowd qualifying first overall in his 1500 buggy. With clean air and a championship on the line, Lofton dominated the first two laps over the 1400 truck of Rob MacCachren before racing side-by-side for the win in the final lap. Through the rocks, deep sand and a variety of weather conditions, Lofton battled on his GRABBERS but MacCachren passed Lofton at the very end to win the overall by less than a minute. Lofton claimed the class win, his third class 1500 win at the Henderson 250 in as many years…that’s a turkey for the bowlers out there.
