Sunday – Bluewater Desert Challenge.
Day 2 at the Bluewater Desert challenge was literally a dustbowl, but a little dust didn’t stop the toughest racers in off-road motorsports.
“Another day in the dust” Said Class 1500 race winner Steve Appleton as he stood next to his Jimco “We had a great run, there were some BIG holes out there and I’m glad we stiffened up the car a bit because it handled great.” “I think our last lap was our best but it was really rough and dusty.” “I just want to thank BFG tires and especially my guys who prepped the car, they did an excellent job.”
With back-to-back wins for the weekend and now a two time winner of the event was Steve Sourapas driving his Gieser Bros. Corona Trick Truck.
Steve came across the finishline on a flat but that didn’t slow him down at all. “We were just cruising because we figured we had enough time over Cameron (Steele) and I hit a big hole about 70mph and I felt it (tire) go.” Said Steve, “We saw that we were only 2 miles from the finish and I said –We’re not stoppin- so we pushed on and made it with time to spare.” “I was much more comfortable this year and I drove both days this time out. (Andy McMillin co-drove last year)” “I approach this as a team sport and whether driving with Andy last year or the guys who help pit or to my prep guy, it’s a win for all of us.” “I’m very happy for all of us today!”
Next stop on the Best in the Desert schedule is the Transwest Ford Henderson 250 to be held near Henderson Nevada and of course RDC will be there…
