Best in the Desert has finally released results from the season ending race at California City. The race was moved to the Peralta Ranch after a CRIT decision forced officials off of the BlueWater property in Parker, Arizona. The course featured 28-miles of racing in which most classes did three laps.
The results were delayed for several days due to a penalty review. Initially, Kyle Jergensen was on track to receive a penalty after a tire fell off of his truck. Further review of the incident determined a strap failed and the tire was not left intentionally. Jergensen finished fourth after changing a flat tire. Sunday he was back on the gas for the win. Jergensen was able to secure the season championship in the series.
In the 6100 class, drivers finished within three seconds of each other. Dustin Grabowski beat Sterling Miller and ray Griffith. Grabowski also was awarded the Championship. In the UTV classes, Vito Ranuio took home the overall Turbo win. Jim Beaver won the overall Unlimited UTV class and Tanner Currier won overall in the UTV Rally class.
Sam Berri also secured the overall win for the weekend and the season championship in Class 1.
