TROPHYLITE Teams set to do battle at the final round of the 2010 General Tire TROPHYLITE Race Series

The Best in the Desert Race Series hosts the 2010 General Tire TROPHYLITE™ Series at the Parker Blue Water Desert Challenge in Parker Arizona

CHANDLER, AZ – October 13, 2010- TROPHYLITE™ teams have been battling all season for the coveted championship of the 2010 General Tire TROPHYLITE Race Series. Several close races and some upsets have left the points battle close but with Gary Messer leading the parade. With big prize money up for grabs at the 2 day event the stage is set for some excitement. With this, the last race of the season, some teams have everything to lose and some have nothing to lose. That combination should make for some very heated battles in the desert of Parker Arizona.

TROPHYLITE purse money for this event nears $12,000.00 up for grabs by TROPHYLITE teams making this one of the richest classes in all of off-road racing. The 2010 General Tire TROPHYLITE season champions are also racing to win their share of the $17,500.00 end of year prize money. A win in Parker for Gary Messer would guarantee a championship for his team and he would take home about $16,000.00 for this event and the championship prize money.

“Off-Road racing is a passion for all involved for sure. We do it because we love it. But with that said the TROPHYLITE purse money is huge for the teams. I am very proud that we have the support of our great sponsors that make this all work. I really belive in the TROPHYLITE program and think you will be happy to see what we have in store for everyone in the years to come. We have been working on the all new TROPHYLITE R-8 truck which will be a spec class bigger V-8 powered truck. This new truck will be awesome with 22″ of front wheel travel and 32″ of rear wheel travel and about 500 Horsepower. Racing these new R-8 trucks will bring a whole new level to the TROPHYLITE program for the teams that step up into the new class. Look for the first truck to be done by the end of this year.” said Greg Foutz, President of TROPHYLITE
