The stage is set and the starting order for the 2022 BITD Parker 425 is finalized as today Trick Trucks, Class 1500, 6100, 6200 and 1000 cars all qualified to figure out how they will start the race.
For the first time BITD set qualifying just south of town at the La Paz Fairgrounds giving the racers a new course to contend with. Parker is Parker though and the course was super soft and high speed with a few jumps thrown into the mix along with some challenging sharp corners.
In the Trick Truck class Kyle Jergensen put her on the pole finishing the loop in a time of 3 Minutes and 37 seconds, 6 seconds ahead of Jax Redline piloting the #18 truck for Nic Whetstone. Coming in third place was Harley Letner 3 seconds behind Jax.
Brent Fox repeated as top qualifier in the 6100 class after doing the same two weeks prior at the Legacy race. Fox finished in a time of 3 Minutes and 55 Seconds with Justin Blower just a few seconds back and the only two 6100’s to finish under 4 minutes. Matt Laughlin rounded out the podium in class.
The 1000 cars were first off the line this morning and Preston Brigman qualified first with a time of 4 Minutes and 16 Seconds, showing just how much horsepower was an advantage on this soft fast course. James Ford was just a second slower then Brigam with Roger Starkey Jr. another second behind him.
Race day starts on Friday with the limited classes running their three laps followed by Saturday for the big show where the Unlimited and 6100/6200 will do their best to take home the checkered flag.
