BJ Baldwin and crew have been busy in the weeks leading up to the longest off-road race in the U.S., Best in the Desert’s, Vegas to Reno. Sure, there have been some road trips, some partying, and some photo shoots done during the break, but there were also many hours spent prepping the championship winning, Monster Energy Trick Truck, “Fedor.”
As usual, Johnny Nelson has done an excellent job on the truck and after a long day of shock tuning with King Shocks, Fedor is ready for war. Trick Truck #1 is loaded with a fresh powertrain, a new King shock package specifically tuned for speeds well over 140mph and a bank of Rigid Industries, LED lights to blaze a path through the darkness. When you bolt on the Method Race Wheels wrapped in 39 inch Toyo Tires, it all adds up to one serious weapon.
All the hard work has been warranted, the race traverses 535 miles of treacherous open desert in Northern Nevada; just the kind of course that BJ loves. It’s filled with High speed corners and rewards hammer down, wide open running with just enough pitfalls thrown in to punish anyone who dares to indulge in a momentary lapse of concentration.
