Anytime I see footage of SCORE or Best in the Desert racing, all I want to do is go race across the desert. Seriously, there is something about desert racing that just draws me to it like a moth to a flame. This video is from Ryan Millen who is driving the Terrible Herbst Trick Truck (Trophy Truck) during time qualifying and during the start of the race. Vegas to Reno is a long way, 550 miles of racing to be exact, and is billed as the longest off-road race in the United States. Being just one of the three drivers in this machine means being on your game is 33% of the total performance. And if you don’t hold up your end of the bargain, no amount of driving by your teammates will result in a win.
Watch how brutal this is in the truck and keep in mind this is just qualifying. The race itself is far more demanding and gnarly.
