Head to Head: Jason Voss vs. Brett Sourapas presented by King Shocks

Clearly, desert off-road racing is not the friendliest of spectator sports. It is absolutely tragic that most of the battles and epic moments in races will never be witnessed. Racers spend hours picking their way through the terrain, dust, obstacles and other racers, each knowingly impeding that one moment that can make or break a race. With the invention of the small action camera, those battles can now easily be seen and shared. Albeit side by side off the start line, Jason Voss and Brett Sourapas shared one of those moments on Day 1 of Best in the Desert’s Bluewater Desert Challenge. Those lucky enough lined along Shea Road were able to witness a few seconds of this 100mph, door to door battle that quickly set the tone for the rest of the race. Head to Head: Jason Voss vs. Brett Sourapas presented by King Shocks gives you a look at both drivers perspective in one clip. Would you pass in the dust at 100mph+?

Great battle but wasn't happy on the 2nd pass when he ran into to us and caused a rear flat and took half the door and rear fender with him which really ended any chance we had to win. Good driving but do it without hitting the other truck !!! Brett won't make the same mistake again as he has a very fast truck and raced him clean and will continue to do so in the future. Thanks to King for all their support as our Herbst/Smith truck continues to get better every race. Make sure his Brett's mother doesn't see this video as she might pull the plug on our fun.

Looked pretty clean considering the speed and terrain. He definitely did not try to take him out. But I could see how it could be interpreted from your unbiased perspective....great to see some door to door racing however you look at it.

I agree on both comments as I'm bias and I don't believe he did it on purpose but the fact remains his actions damaged our truck and really took us out of the race. If Brett had done that to him I would expect he would feel the same way and I would be having a conversation with Brett. I shared my feelings with Jason shortly after I saw both in cars footage and we are good. But pretty risky move for someone that is going for a points championship as if Brett didn't lift when Jason cut the course and slid in front of him he would have gone for a wild ride and wrecked both trucks.

Steve,

Brett is a good kid with a lot of wins in his future. You should be proud of him (which I'm sure you are). Good job on that one ;)

Finally something cool on RDC and nothing to do with a Polaris product. Fun to watch!

From a spectators point of view and from someone who likes both drivers I gotta say it's both a risky move but at the same time wasn't intentional . Sucks that that happened to Brett though .

Thanks for sharing.....that was bad ass!! As stated, you don't get to see action like that too often. Kudos to both Jason and Brett for racing each other hard and clean like that. Figures....I usually watch the race along Shea Road but missed going this year. I would have lost my voice cheering you both on!!!!

I agree that it's risky on both parts, but when you're in the thick of it, your passion, adrenaline, ego, and copilot can't stop you.

I know, I've been the copilot in these battles and when a driver is hot, there's no stopping them.

Amazing battle though! Thank Brett on our behalf Steve for not backing down and going heads up with one of the best, Jason Voss.

It's been fun to watch Brett develop after racing against you and both of your boys with Ramsey in the Trophylites.
