BITD-12-16-11The last race on the Best In The Desert’s 2013 calendar is turning out to be a real challenge amongst competitors, with so many season class championships riding on it. Multiple car and truck class championships will be decided at the end of the day when the dust settles on this last race of the season. The Henderson “250” is also a “double points” race, so anything can happen in the final points shuffle.

The race course is in compliance and meets all of the environmental concerns by the BLM.  We work very hard at Best In The Desert to comply with the rules and regulations and we appreciate our racers doing the same; we all must protect our environment and respect the rules.

A number of Trick Truck drivers still have a shot at taking the season championship crown. Coming into this race, Jason Voss holds a 47 point lead over Steve Olliges, with Scott Whipple hanging just 23 points behind Olliges. Not far back and ready to challenge should something happen to the top three, are Troy Vest, Rob MacCachren, Gary Weyhrich, Steve Strobel and TJ Flores. It comes down to whichever driver and team that can put together the perfect race for the win, probably goes home with the championship.

Best In The Desert is proud to announce that the Trick Truck Challenge has been a huge success for the 2011 racing season.  Twenty-Two (22) of the best racers in the country put in an additional $5000 for prize money to be paid out to the top 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place Trick Truck winners in each of the five Best In The Desert races. The prize money added up to $108,000 paid out and another $18,000 will be paid out as a Year-End Bonus to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place year-end winners. Now that is some serious money to take home by racing Best In The Desert; plus the Best In The Desert payback class money, any way you look at it the Trick Truck 1st Place winner is going home with a lot of money!

The Trick Truck race is still up for grabs and will be one of the closest races ever followed by all race enthusiasts.  In Best In The Desert a racer must start all five races, but can throw out their lowest points. This means that the Trick Truck race is actually a battle to the end, this is how it plays out after you have dropped the racers lowest scores going into the TransWest Ford Henderson “250”:
