On Friday, August 16th, Best In The Desert held the General Tire Vegas to Reno off road race. Known for being the longest point-to-point desert race in the United States, this highlighted event attracts a who’s who of very talented racers. Along with the ultra elite racing exotic “Trick Trucks” and high horsepower unlimited buggies, 260 brave challengers attempted to conquer nearly 550 miles of non-stop off road obstacles. In the end, it was Jason Voss from Northern California driving the #35 Truck equipped with King Shocks, who captured the quickest finishing time of 9 Hours, 10 Minutes and 13 seconds, more than 6 minutes ahead of second place.
It was a big win for Jason Voss and earned a bit of redemption. During Time Trials earlier in the week, Jason had nailed down the fastest time but was penalized for knocking over a cone in the very first corner. Without the penalty Voss would have timed in at first by 3 seconds, but with the 15 second mandatory penalty, Jason was given a 12th position start.
