Best in the Desert Henderson Fabtech Desert Challange Race

Andy McMillin overalls and takes home the class championship for 2009

Yes I know what you are saying, how can you have a Henderson Race in Jean NV? Well many were scratching their heads about this. As it turns out BITD owner Casey Folks could only secure a small portion of land in the Eldorado Valley and felt it would not make for a challenging enough race, so he headed to Jean for a little something different. What would have been a 12 mile loop race in Henderson turned into a 60 mile circuit that used a lot of BLM approved Primm race course with a few changes never seen before.

The Trick Trucks and Class 1500 cars race started in the afternoon so the slower cars and trucks could race in the morning.

The afternoon race started with pole sitter Sam Berri, then Chuck Hovey, Andy McMillin and Jesse Jones. Berri held the lead for most of the race until McMillin made his move passing Berri and holding onto the win overall and the Trick Truck class. This also gave McMillin the class win for 2009. His time was 3:51:03.

Jesse Jones took second overall and second in Trick Truck with his #76 Trick Truck by Geiser Brothers with an overall time of 3:54:11

Sam Berri finished 3rd overall and took the class win for the day in 1500 class with his #1549 car with a time of 3:55:03

Will Staats in the #42 Mastercraft sponsored Trick Truck took 4th overall and 3rd in class with a time of 4:09:52.

Rounding out the top 5 was Kory Halopoff in the #1570 Class 1500 car with a time of 4:09:52 just seconds away from 4th place.


Taking first in Class 7200 and an impressive 19th overall was the #7276 truck driven by Jason Ruane with a time of 4:44:32.

First in Class 1200 and 20th overall was the #1220 car of Ryan Staats with a time of 4:45:09.

Top in Class 1000 with a time of just 4:46:44 was Cory Keysar in his #1020 car. His time was good for 21st overall.

Class 8000 winner Macrae Glass driving his 8025 truck with a time of 4:48:39 and overall taking 23rd place.


A special mention goes out to Shannon Campbell who placed 12th in Class 1500 (22nd overall) with his rock racer #1554. I guess special consideration was made to allow him to race with the 1500s, and he sure made a presence. Equipped with an A-Arm front suspension gave him the ability to keep up and do very well in the race.
