Reno, Nevada — It was a punishing 550 miles for all the drivers in the longest race in the United States. More than 250 teams battled the brutal desert terrain in this year’s BITD General Tire Vegas to Reno race. Justin Lofton and Harley Letner led the Class 1500 pack for most of the day, but in the end, it was CJ Hutchins who pulled off the win. CJ’s car, which features an Albins AGB, crossed the finish line in 9:34:58 to place fourth overall and take the top spot in Class 1500. John Walker, also running an Albins AGB, took 2nd in Class 1500.
Banning Motorsports continued their winning ways in Class 1100, claiming their third BITD win this season. Brian Folks drove Banning car 1178, that features a Mendeola MD5, to first place in Class 1100.
