BITD Vegas to Reno Qualifying: Pat Dean, Jesse Jones Fastest

Aug. 15, 2013 By Art Eugenio,
Pat Dean earned the fastest time in Vegas to Reno qualifying.

This year’s Vegas to Reno qualifying round featured something new for the racers: 4 miles of tight, twisty, washed-out, rocky racecourse. The all-new technical course lent itself to the more nimble class 1500 cars, and it showed with the top two qualifiers coming from the buggy class. Honorable mention goes to Jason Voss, who actually had the quickest time but a penalty set him back out of the top 10. Stay tuned for more as our race coverage continues to Friday’s race action.

Jesse Jones was the fastest truck in qualifying.
