The KC Hilites/Glass Chiropractic Racing Team recently competed in the BITD Parker Desert Challenge. This round of racing was hyped as the biggest of the year, since Team Ford Las Vegas/Steve Olliges and Kartek stepped up big time to provide the biggest payout of the year. We headed to this round with a plan to pad the points lead, and take home the loot if possible.
This race had an unusual format, with two days of racing over a very short (turned brutally rough) course.
Day one found us starting in the 20th [side by side] row after a less than stellar qualifying run. Crew member Josh Budka navigated. We got a good start and headed out first. It was clear our suspension was near spot on as we hammered our machine to the limit and picked off other racers. The closer to the front, the higher the pace. There were dead racecars everywhere. We hammered on and finished the day 2nd on the road, and in class less than 2 minutes out of first.
