Jesse-Jones-Pro-2-Crandon-8-29-13This weekend marks Jesse Jones’ return to short-course off-road racing, jumping behind the wheel of the brand new FOX Pro-2. Jones will be debuting the new truck at “The Big House”,  Crandon International Raceway, for TORC Series rounds 14 & 15 as well as competing in the AMSOIL Cup where the Pro-2 and Pro-4 go head to head for $40,000, winner takes all.

“Going short course racing was never apart of the plan for 2013″, Jones said with a smile, “but when my Trophy Truck teammate  Bryce Menzies mentioned he was building a new truck, I said I wanted one too. The decision was made right then and there.”

Behind the build would be the mastermind of Ricky Johnson’s 2011 & 2012 Traxxas TORC Series Championship winning Pro-4, Mike Krahling. The truck was built from the ground up in the Las Vegas shop of Menzies Motorsports and with over a year of development and planning, the truck finally hit dirt just a few weeks ago for multiple photo shoots and test sessions.

BFGoodrich Tires brought home all top 10 Trick Truck finishers and 11 of the top 12 overall finishers for another dominating run in desert racing. This season, BFGoodrich has claimed seven total desert race wins.

Voss started 12th after serving a penalty from qualifying and overcame the field of more than 50 unlimited vehicles and the grueling 550 miles in a final time of 9:13:10, more than six minutes ahead of the next finisher. His other win came earlier this year in the Best In The Desert Parker425.

From the lights of the Las Vegas strip to the high desert of Reno, Nevada, this year’s General Tire Vegas to Reno challenged some of the best drivers the off road racing industry has to offer. Five hundred and fifty miles across the Mojave Desert at temperatures reaching upwards of 108 degrees gave everyone a run for their money. The longest off road race in the United States, Vegas to Reno claims its fair share of casualties.

McMurrough-Vegas-to-Reno-8-22-13After winning their last two races and months of preparation, McMurrough Racing and TJ Flores had their sights set on bringing another win back to the shop. Vegas to Reno, put on by Best In The Desert, is one of the only point to point off-road races that still takes place in the states. The racers and their vehicles compete in temperatures that can reach over 110 degrees, barrel through silt beds that swallow anyone that hesitates, and fly across long grated roads where trucks can reach speeds of 136 mph.

The events for Vegas to Reno began on Wednesday when over 50 Trick Trucks and Class 1′s lined up for qualifying. The 4.2-mile course was marked just on the outskirts of Las Vegas and the tight course would put two Class 1′s starting in top spots. The #80 McMurrough Racing Trick Truck would start Fridays race in the 6th place starting position. TJ would be the 3rd Trick Truck following right behind Jesse Jones and Bryce Menzies.

“We were excited for our starting position. We wouldn’t have too much dust to battle come race day and we just needed to set a good pace and let the race come to us.” -said driver, TJ Flores.

Jesse-Jones-Vegas-to-Reno-8-22-13It was only a few brief months ago that Jesse Jones was plagued with bad luck at the Baja 500. Now it was time to settle the score. This past weekend was the 2013 Best In The Desert, Vegas to Reno. The longest off-road race in the United States. Jones and his crew made only minor changes to the #76 FOX Trick Truck to prepare for the 543 mile race across the Nevada desert.

Festivities for the race started Wednesday just North East of the Las Vegas Valley where over 50 Unlimited race vehicles staged for time trials. A 4.2-mile course was set up in the middle of the desert and after everyone attempted to set the fastest time, results would show that Jesse Jones and the #76 FOX Trick Truck would start the race 3rd off the line and the first Trick Truck out of 33.

“Starting in the front of the pack has its advantages and disadvantages,” Jones said. “We knew that we would have to have a flawless race to finish first.”

Menzies-Mint-400-Win-3-23-13After a grueling battle with the top off-road racers in the world, Bryce Menzies has won the 2013 Mint 400. Menzie’s day did not start well as he was beaten off the line by 2011 Mint 400 Overall Champion BJ Baldwin. Menzies barreled out into the Nevada desert and it took less than 100 miles to take over first place position.

Halfway through the race, Jesse Jones chose not to pit and was able to pass Menzies. By the third lap, Menzies was hot on Jones tail and was able to regain the top spot. From there, Menzies never looked back and he is now the 2013 General Tire Mint 400 Presented by Polaris Champion.
