At they are off...

2095 Morning Race

On the morning of Dec 4th the 1600 ( 2095 car ) was prepped and ready to go. Travis Chase and Kyle Quinn started the first lap with a strong start but when the 1600 rolled into main pit there was an oil issue. The team did a quick fix in hopes that the car would hold up. After the first lap Jamie Richey jumped in to codrive with Kyle Quinn now at the wheel. The duo was hoping the fix had worked until the oil issue acted up again and the team had to pull the 1600 car. The 1600 did not finish at Henderson 250 but will be up and ready to go the following weekend in Laughlin Nevada for the upcoming SNORE race. Stay tuned and good luck James Richey and Kyle Quinn!

Tech and Contingency

Downtown Henderson was full of the hustle on bustle of revved up engines and excited teams on the Morning of Friday December 3rd.

Points Battle in BITD

The points standings for Best In The Desert’s five-race “American Off-Road Racing Series” overall and class championships are getting even tighter after the running of the very popular and safe “double points” Vegas to Reno race last month.

Only one point separates the top two in not only the overall but also the Class 1500 leaders with Steve Croll having sitting in the top spot with 361 points over second place Chris Appleton with 360 points. Not far behind are Vince Galewick (third, 331 points), Chris Kemp and Travis Chase (tied for fourth, 324 points each), and Adam Pfankuch (fifth, 316 points) as Class 1500 racers make up the majority of the top ten overall points standings. This is due largely to the tight competition and the consistently huge field of open Class 1500 cars that Best In The Desert attracts for their races.

Leading the Class 7200 field and coming in sixth overall is Alan A. Hogan with 309 points. The Trick Truck standings are extremely tight as well with Marc Ewing (304 points) holding a narrow margin of only 3 points over B.J. Baldwin (301points) as the two sit at seventh and eighth overall. At ninth overall is Class 2000 leader Kevin Smith with 295 points. Current Class 1100 leader Lee Banning Sr., with 288 points, rounds out the overall top ten.

Other Best In The Desert class points leaders include John Hsu (260 points), Class 1000; Troy Vest (275 points), Class 1200; John Helton (222 points), Class 1700 JeepSpeed; Kevin Smith (Class 2000), Dave Schneider (256 points), Class 4400 Utra4; Louis Chamberland (223 points), Class 6000 Trophylite; Blake Henn (267 points), Class 7100; Kellon Walch (195 points), Class 7300; Macrae Glass (276 points), Class 8000; and Tim Casey (269 points), Class 8100.

Having a great rookie year so far is Chris Appleton. Not only is he one point shy of the overall points standings, he also sits in the top spot for the coveted “Rookie of the Year” award with 360 points. Still within striking distance of him and tied for second place with 324 points each, is “Vegas to Reno” race winner Chris Kemp and Travis Chase. All three are Class 1500 drivers.

The tight points battles will only add to the excitement for the next race on the Best In The Desert 2010 calendar, the all new BlueWater Desert Challenge in Parker, AZ, October 15-17, hosted by the BlueWater Resort & Casino. This is the newest off-road desert race in “The American Off-Road Racing Series” and features an action packed 2-day loop-race format. Two full days of non-stop racing on a exciting all new course that includes the likes of John Wayne’s Gorge, Marilyn’s Romp, The Matterhorn, The Sand Pile, Parker River Run, The New Thunder Alley and The Snake Pit. The BlueWater Desert Challenge is sure to quickly become one of the all-time favorite for off-road racers. All this plus the beautiful Colorado River in mid definitely won’t want to miss out on the next great Best In The Desert adventure.
