Fort Mill, SC – October 17, 2012: Team GT invaded the Arizona desert this past weekend for Best In The Desert’s (BITD) Blue Water Desert Challenge. In a two-day event, Team GT methodically tackled the 25-mile loop course filled with deep silt, rocks, and plenty of other challenges along the way. In a new truck that’s only been raced once before, Camburg Racing was able to maneuver through the pitfalls of the Parker, AZ desert to capture their second class 6100 win in a row.
“This race went really well for Camburg Racing,” said Jerry Zaiden of Camburg Racing. “We started off the line with a brand new high-tech truck. They took us off the line but Jerry (Whelchel) was able to pass them back about mile nine and we ran in front the rest of the day. On day two we got off the line better but towards the end of lap one, we got into a bunch of dust and overshot a turn and got stuck. This set us back a bit but we came back to win. It was a flawless day. No flat tires, the engine ran perfectly, everything was just perfect.”
