Best in the Desert Parker 425 2010

Best in the Desert Parker 425 Race 2010

Well the Parker “Curse” was at it again. Clouds loomed over head as racers staged for the 2010 Best in the Desert season opener. Fortunately the rain held off until early afternoon, then it came down with a vengeance.

The weather seemed to beat most racers. Out of the 197 racers in the 3-Lap race only 65 finished. In the 2-Lap race 17 out of 43 racers finished.

The weather didn’t stop some racers like BJ Baldwin. He finished 20 minutes ahead of the pack with a time of 7:16:14.

Taking second overall and first in class was Steve Croll in the #1585 car with a time of 7:35:59.

Coming off his 2009 Trick Truck championship Andy McMillin with truck owner Steve Sourapas shocked a lot of people in the #6 Corona Trick Truck. They started 61st and “stormed” past everyone to take 3rd overall and second in Class 1400. Their time was 7:55:08

4th overall and 2nd in Class 1500 was the #1559 Jimco built car driven by Chris Appleton with a time of 8:05:47.

Rounding out our top 5 was Garrick Freitas in his #1572 Jimco car with a time of 8:05:55 just seconds out of 4th place.
