Fort Mill, SC – August 20, 2013 – It’s the longest off-road race in the United States. The General Tire Vegas to Reno race, put on by Best In The Desert (BITD), is not for the faint of heart. For nearly 550 miles, teams navigated the harsh terrain of the Nevada desert from Las Vegas to Reno and more than 95 teams attempted to claim victory. It was CJ Hutchins who took the top spot for Team GT finishing first in Class 1500 and fourth overall completing the race in 9:34:58. The win marked Hutchins best finish in the famed race.
“Congratulations to CJ and his entire team on their 1500 win and fourth-place finish overall at Vegas to Reno,” said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for General Tire. “To have four wins with CJ (Hutchins), Steve (Alexander), Banning and Randy (Merritt) – who has now won three times in a row at Vegas to Reno – all on red letter GRABBER’s is amazing. Vegas to Reno is a demanding 550 miles and I’m proud of each and every one of our teams for finishing.”
