Reno, NV - The 2017 General Tire “Vegas to Reno” is considered a true American Off-Road Adventure and this year the course will be leading teams some 540 miles through some of the toughest terrain found in North America. Miles of silt beds threw dust in all directions as race vehicles travel through them however the winds were calm cutting visibility down to nearly zero for several minutes at a time before the slightest hint of the course would appear. There are 14 pit locations along the course ranging from 25 to 55 miles apart allowing teams to stop to make repairs if needed and fuel up, change drivers, tires or other equipment that had been utilized on course.

Thursday morning brings Tech and Contingency in the parking lot of the Texas Station Gambling Hall in North Las Vegas. The Children of the Dirt team made their way through the contingency line visiting their sponsors along the way.

Top 5 Finish in Laughlin

The third race of the Best in the Desert Race Series would take the Children of the Dirt team to Laughlin NV. The #6124 lined up for 2 days of off-road racing action against 20 other teams chasing a win at the 2nd annual Method Race Wheels event, the Laughlin Desert Classic. Due to the close proximity of the Mint 400 to this Laughlin race, the team was only able to get in a few hours of testing, basically shake the truck down and make sure everything is operational. PJ knows the trucks suspension is not where they would like for it to be but he does feel like they are going to give it their all and still be competitive. With the help of his co-driver Joe Herrera calling out the corners and dangers, they look to run a clean race, minimize mistakes and put the SoCal Seafood SPEC-TT in the top 5 for the weekend.
