When a desert race is a short race qualifying up top is very important. With BITD coming to Laughlin for the Method Race Wheels Laughlin Desert Challenge, racers will go on an all out sprint for two days to see who will come out on top.
Today drivers qualified on a short 2.5 mile course and Harley Letner laid down the fastest time in Class 1500 at 2 minutes and 21 seconds, and Josh Daniel was top qualifier in Trick Truck one second behind with a 2 minute and 22 second lap. Unlike the longer BITD races where Trick Truck and Class 1500 start intertwined, for this race they will race in separate heats just like the Blue Water Desert Challenge.
Different for this race instead of the two side by side start, looking at the start line here in Laughlin Casey is trying something different with 3 wide which will make for an exciting start on race day.
Race day make sure you come back to RDC for live coverage during there races both Saturday and Sunday!
