Reno, NV – Rigid Industries Torture Team members had guns blazing at rounds 5 and 6 of the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series held on what many say is the fastest track on the schedule, Wild West Motorsports Park in Reno, Nevada. Huge elevation changes on the track allow gravity to hurl the drivers into the corners at the bottom of the hills. Like every round of the series, there was plenty of door to door action and incredible driving skills on display. Some were able to perform miraculous saves; others were not as lucky.
Ridgecrest, CA – Rigid Industries racers powered through the dust and rocks at the HDRA King Shocks 250 in Ridgecrest, ca. to take the overall victory, three additional wins and several podium finishes. The overall victory and Trophy Truck class win went to the Green Army truck of Justin Davis. Justin used sound strategy to put him in position to win. He started seventh off the line and put in a blistering first lap when the traffic ahead was light. As the laps wore down, traffic, and the thick dust on course, continued to increase. He made his way to the front running second on the road behind the Terrible Herbst truck. Second on the road but first on corrected time, Justin did not want to risk a pass in the rocky terrain so he followed the Herbst truck to the finish line taking the win.
