Azuñia Tequila’s Race Team Wins Best in the Desert Championship

HENDERSON, NV, December 3, 2012 – Azuñia Tequila’s race team finishes the off-road racing season securing the Best in the Desert (BITD) championship in class 6100 for a 2nd consecutive year.  Racers Jim Riley and Rick L. Johnson had their eye on the prize at the start of the BITD Henderson 250 race and nothing was going to stop this team from achieving championship victory.
“This season was a fierce battle and the competition was strong in the 6100 class,” said Jim Riley. “The Azuñia race team was strong, focused and ready to compete this season. Our team performed solid all-season; we just needed to start the race in order to win the championship.”
The Azuñia race truck has under gone some engineering changes during the prep of this race.  Justin “Bean” Smith has been added to the team as the lead fabricator and will continue maintaining the race truck for the 2013 season.
Supporting off-road racing is a cornerstone of Azuñia’s “Adventures of Life Campaign.” The campaign highlights scenarios of adventures and ways to celebrate these experiences. The campaign is comprised of three main adventures and features NBA legend Bill Walton, Surfing legend Sunny Garcia and Off-Road Racer/Azunia CEO Jim Riley.
