2020 BITD Parker 425

Jason Voss wins the “Legendary” Parker 425, the longest consecutive running offroad race in the United States, for the third time in his racing career.

This years Parker 425 was a little different, for safety reasons a two day format was implemented to ease on course contact between the slower classes and the unlimited vehicles. The new format seemed to work great for the racers with what was a blistering pace for the overall leaders. The lack of lap traffic seemed to speed up the pace significantly.

For the majority of Saturdays race the battle was between top qualifying entry of truck #70 Kevin Thompson / Harley Letner and #35 Jason Voss. They were nose to tail most of the day until the #70 lost a rear end gear late on the last lap.

With the #70 out of contention it left a huge gap to the next vehicle for Jason Voss letting cruise to the finish with over 25 minutes in hand.

It felt good to have a clean run in our new truck to start off the 2020 Season.” Said Voss “We can’t thank all our partners and sponsors enough for the hard work. This is our third Overall win at the Parker 425 and it never gets old!”

Brandon Bailey took the top honors in class 1500 over Brian Parkhouse.

Kyle Jergensen took the win in 6100, the largest class of the weekend.

On Friday’s race Conner Mcmullen took the win in Class 1000 over Chase Warren.

A big story in the P425 was Josh DeJong’s 7th place finish in the Trick Truck class.
It was the truck’s first race, built by Louis Zavas Engineering. It was also Josh’s first race EVER in any motor sports.
A big win for the newly formed DeJong Racing Team.
Hi Art, Thank you for the great coverage of BITD as usual. We very much appreciate your continued coverage of our series. This past weekend was one for the record books. Just as a point of clarification we actually had 178 entries with 167 taking the start. 84 on Friday and 83 on Saturday. This was about the same as last year. Entries at the Parker 250 set a new record at 295 entries. For those of us that remember the good old days that would be equal to 462 entries starting the old Parker 400. Also, we are trying very hard to get the message out about the tremendous payback we are offering in 2020. $51,000 in Maxxis Triple Crown Bonus money alone at the Parker 425 plus regular BITD class payout, Trick truck side bet money, and Ford Contingency we are pretty sure Jason Voss walked away with something north of $40,000 for the win. I just wanted to share this with you. Thanks again for all you do for our sport. Looking forward to seeing you at the next race.
