Best in the Desert Silver State 300 2010

SNORE Dusty Times 250

TJ Flores Overalls and Wins Class 1500

Point to point races are described as being the, “Best” type of desert racing to the racers. For me they are tough, no way my Ranger prerunner can outrun a Trick Truck or Class 1500 car to beat them to the next shooting spot. But such is the life of a photographer.

We started our day in Alamo, NV just 90 miles north of Las Vegas where nearly 200 cars, trucks, Quads, UTVs and motorcycles lined up for the start of the 2010 Best in the Desert Bilek Racing Silver State 300. By the end of the grueling 300 mile race only 34 seconds separated TJ Flores the first car to finish and Jason Voss the second place finisher. What is so amazing about Voss’ performance for this race is this is the same truck that burnt to the ground last year at this very race, now completely rebuilt.

What makes this race so exciting is the terrain. Starting at 3500 feet and some parts of the course rising to over 6400 ft, racers reported seeing snow at the higher elevations. Seven minutes was all that separated the top 5 finishers, so you can see what a close race this was.

TJ Flores wins by only 34 seconds with a time of 5:47:02.527

Jason Voss grabbed second overall and first in Trick Truck with a time of 5:48:36.696

Sam Berri finished strong with 3rd overall and second in Class 1500 with a time of 5:52:00.278

Chris Appleton crossed the finish line 4th overall and 3rd in Class 1500 with a time of 5:53:13.860

Loren Brown rounded up the top 5 with a time of 5:54:55.820
