Las Vegas, NV – After qualifying eleventh at the Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno offroad race the BFGoodrich Tires / Team Ford #27 Trick Truck finished fifth in the Trick Truck class. The team’s solid top five finish puts them in second place in the season long Trick Truck points championship heading down the stretch. To be championship contenders with a new truck and a small dedicated team speaks volumes for the crew and everyone who supports them.
“Our team is awesome,” says Steve Olliges, “I just can’t say enough about the entire crew, I’m really proud of the team 27 guys, they did great out there. We ran the FOX shocks John Marking set up for the race right out of the box and they were perfect, just fantastic. Our BFG Baja TA’s and TrailReady Beadlocks took everything we dished out and Mastercraft Safety supplied us with their new ratcheting seatbelts that allowed me to really put myself firmly in the seats. According to the GPS we got up to 130 mph in several places and they really put me in that comfort zone.”
