Gary Messer, who has competed in every TROPHYLITE series race since its inception, stated “In both Laughlin and Primm we had zero problems, the truck performed flawlessly, and we passed a lot of people after starting in the back of our class at both events.”  It should be noted that Messer raced his TROPHYLITE in compliance with all 2009 General Tire TROPHYLITE Series Rules in both events, and was able to beat trucks with substantially more horsepower and wheel travel.

The 2009 General Tire TROPHYLITE Series continues at the historical General Tire Mint 400 Off-Road Race in Las Vegas, Nevada March 26-29.  The General Tire Mint 400 Off-Road Race will be the most challenging race in TROPHYLITE history.  TROPHYLITE competitors will also be rewarded with the largest payout of the season totaling in excess of $13,000 as well as bonus points for finishing positions 1st – 3rd.
