Jason Voss was back in winning form. Voss won the Best in the Desert Parker 425 overall, beating second place Tracy Graf by a whopping 25 minutes. Voss qualified 2nd during the time trials and had to get around top qualifier Kevin Thompson in the number 70 Trick Truck. Thompson’s wheel man was none other than Harley Letner, who is notably fast! The payout for Voss was pretty significant. Voss took home $25,000 in Unlimited Class Maxxis Triple Crown bonus money plus a Ford contingency and Trick Truck side bet check of $40,000.
“There’s no better way to start off the season with a huge victory,” said Voss. “Our King Shocks Trick Truck was perfect all day in Parker, and we really made a statement. I’m so psyched to get that first win of 2020 under the belt. I’m sure it’ll be the first of many this year!”
Justin Lofton had a rough day but ended up on the podium in 3rd place. Lofton had mechanical issues which caused him to replace a driveline along with a couple of flat tires.
The 2020 Best in the Desert Parker 425 featured a new 2-day format. Organizers selected this format to make conditions ideal for all racers. Similar classes were grouped together to prevent fewer bottlenecks and less lapping of slower entries. Organizers also wanted each racer to have the opportunity to finish in the daylight.
