Jason Voss Goes Back to Back at Best in the Desert’s Parker 425

It was an exciting and grueling race at the Best In The Desert Parker 425; vehicles getting stuck, breaking, or even just running out of fuel. However, we do have winners and here is a quick rundown of the Top 3 in Trophy Truck and Class 1.

BITD Trophy Truck Champion, Jason Voss in the  #1 Voss Motorsports Ford Raptor took the win overall in Trick Truck for the second consecutive year. He was able to overcome a severely deteriorated course, including a bad wash at race mile 170 that got Robby Gordon and several smaller trucks stuck. Tavo Vildosola took second place in the #21 BraNix Ford Raptor and Mark Wehyrich in the #9 TSCO Raptor took the final podium.  Corey Keysar took the win in Class 1500.

The real story of the day was in Class 1800 Sportsman.  Lee and Tyler Patten took the historic win in the #1814 buggy. Ty was diagnosed with a brain tumor at age 21.  His dad Lee Patten had us build a Class 1 race car for him a few years back.  Ty spent the majority of his 21st year in and out of the hospital.  At age 22, he decided he wanted to go racing.  Lee called Jerry Penhall and asked for help to make it happen.

Not only did Lee and Tyler compete in one of the largest off-road races in America but they won their Class 1800 Sportsman Class after starting dead last.  A special congratulation goes out to the Patten’s for taking a class win, Jerry Penhall for allowing Ty to race, and team Herzog for chasing this amazing Father and Son effort.

A full race recap will be posted promptly tomorrow morning.  Thanks for following the race with Race-Dezert.com.
