For the 2019 Season, Justin Lofton; driver of the #41 FOX, MultiCam, #AHBEEF Jimco Trick Truck, announces an ambitious racing schedule comprising the most prestigious events in the sport of desert racing. Justin selected nine of the longest and most competitive races from both (BITD) Best In The Desert’s and SCORE-International’s calendars with aspirations to seek out overall race wins and conceivably series championships. “These are the big key races and I am hungry for another big win,” declared Justin.
Lofton continued. “Our 2019 schedule is a major undertaking, so I am very grateful to have FOX return as the #41’s primary title. We have such a great partnership on and off the track, I could not ask for anything more. MultiCam is super to work with and I am eager to debut the truck in Parker. We are very excited to add STEEL-ITStainless Steel Coatings and Method Race Wheels to our program. The STEEL-IT weldable coating well help us a great deal with easy truck prep and maintenance, so I know my guys in the shop are looking forward to that. Method Race Wheels are top notch and look great with our BFGoodrich Tires.
They have proven themselves to be the wheel choice of race winners. I like winning so it already feels natural and healthy.“

Lofton has his eye on BITD’s big and juicy season opener, the Parker 425. This event is a favorite for Justin, and a must for any series contender. Four days later, the Toyo Tires Desert Invitational is serving a second helping during the Ultra4 King Of The Hammers in Johnson Valley, California. This first of its kind, invite only race, will be served raw and features the most elite drivers at the top tier of desert racing. With the who’s who vying for the $125,000 prize purse, the richest in the sport, Justin is aiming to make history and capture this significant win.
In early March, Lofton has made reservations for a top finish at The Mint 400. The Great American Off-Road Race is a true classic that brings out the best of the best. Justin has achieved great success at this event claiming the Mint 400 Overall, twice, once in 2015 and again in 2016. Few have experienced this great victory and even fewer, have ever won the event overall back-to-back.
Next on the chopping block, Lofton will take the #41 FOX, STEEL-IT, MultiCam, #AHBEEF Jimco Truck down South for the SCORE San Felipe 250. This race will be a first time venture, however Lofton is seasoned in Baja racing and has the speed to do well in the spring time Baja sprint race.
The rest of the season has some seriously meaty races stacked up. The biggest races with the most miles include the SCORE Baja 500, BITD V2R, and the SCORE Baja 1000.
The Laughlin Desert Classic sprinkled in there too during mid-October. The Laughlin Desert Classic is a tasty morsel that features two days & two rounds of racing that takes place right outside downtown Laughlin so it’s a great time to get friends & family out to the track.
With Justin’s serious appetite for success, the Justin Lofton Foundation is where he is able to give back and support others in his community. The 9th annual Justin Lofton Charity Golf Tournament was just held January 19th and is a recognized benefit and fundraiser dedicated to assisting children throughout the Imperial Valley County. Many off road counterparts and companies like FOX are essential in making the event a terrific success that has raised well over $300,000 dollars to date.
Be sure to follow Justin Lofton’s racing efforts in the video series #AHBEEF Life on Youtube and see what it takes to get to each and every race all year long. Lofton and the team produced over 20 episodes during the 2018 racing season that tell a behind the scenes story you cannot see anywhere else. The 2019 schedule is even more demanding so follow along with Lofton and the team to get a taste of that #AHBEEF Life!
