Last year we had a trophy truck, UTVs, Buggy that cam out to compete. They had a blast to finally able to compete in a rally. The stage roads are designed by us ralliest that I considered the most technical and challenging rally around. The off-road teams were tired but who won the Desert Class Challenge did say;"Now I understand why you guys do less mileage than a average off-road event." It is pretty damn technical.!" When they got a trophy the event and again at the Bilstein Southwest RallyCup Series presented by Lucas Oil. They felt they won BIG time.
Well we have a even better challenge this year! We are calling out to off-road teams to meet the challenge again by doing Friday night and then Saturday which are two seperate events. Here is this challenge! If you win the Desert Class Challenge Championship. You will win some prize money, some Lucas Oil Product. AND YOU get to go to Team O'Neil Rally School which all of this is valued over $2500.00's! But all of the podium winners will win Lucas Oil product, trophy and some prize money. Winning team will be on the Jim Beaver Down and Dirty Radio Show. To talk about your experience.
So what are we taking for Desert Class? Trophy Trucks, UTV's(2 seaters), Jeepspeed, etc. We will inspect via a off-road technical inspector. We did a few BITD classes last year. So we will expand on it this year.
