International Teams competing:
Francisco “Chaleco” Lopez (Chile) - UTV Turbo Pro

When the youngest American Dakar Rally winner, AJ Jones, teams up with 3x Dakar Rally winner Francisco “Chaleco” Lopez, fans are bound to notice and the dust is bound to fly! This duo, racing in a Can-Am Factory South Racing Maverick X3, hope to run strong, learn a lot—and simply finish their first-ever desert race in the American Southwest. Also the first Vegas to Reno for a defending 5x Dakar Rally champion team, South Racing hopes to grow its off-road operations in North America with additional races in the future.

Toby Price (Australia) – Trick Truck

Australian off-road and enduro motorcycle racer Toby Price has won a host of national championships and is a two-time Dakar winner. The rider from Maitland, New South Wales, Australia, has a resumé that reads like a Down Under bucket list. Among Price's honors are multiple wins at the Finke and Hattah Desert Races as well as a stack of Australian Off-Road Championships and National Enduro Championships. He’s also represented Australia at four International Six Day Enduros. This will be Toby's first time competing in the ultra high HP Trick Truck class.

Red Bull Off-Road Junior OT3 Team:

Guillaume De Mevius (Belgium) – UTV Trophy Unlimited
Belgium’s latest cross-country rally star combines speed and smarts to conquer some of the planet’s most perilous terrain. Guillaume de Mevius brings plenty of pedigree to the Red Bull Off-Road Junior Team. His father Grégoire and brother Ghislain are both well-known faces in the World Rally Championship paddock thanks to their own exploits behind the wheel.

Christina Gutierez (Spain) – UTV Trophy Unlimited
A naturally gifted driver, Spain's Cristina Gutiérrez made history in 2021 when she became only the second woman ever to win a Dakar Rally stage. Passionate about motorsport from a young age, Cristina Gutiérrez has carved out a hugely successful career in the world of off-road racing.

WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?

Every Vegas to Reno race held since then has proven to be the embodiment of what Casey envisioned. The 2022 running continues that vision with some incredible new adventures built-in.
