Chupacabra Offroad headed back to the longest race in the United States, 505 miles this year to be exact. Unfortunately, our team ended up not seeing the finish line. I received a call from my buddy Chad Borino, who was slated to drive the middle portion of the race, and needed a Co-rider. After Co-riding the 2nd half of the race last year, and building my own race car this year, I had a lot more knowledge and experience to contribute to the team.
The team owner Bill Hermant, is the owner of Reno Cycles & Gear, a successful Polaris dealership in Northern Nevada. The team races regularly, and has races V2R 3 times before. They had a good game plan and a solid team. We were racing in the Sportsman UTV class, which only had 4 entrants. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to get in the RZR, and after the radiator fan went out, it could not be repaired, and we had to call the race.No one in this class finished, so maybe this race is simply too tough for a stock SxS. Racing is tough, and V2R was brutal- congrats to all the finishers and team that won their classes.
We will be back!

The middle section so We’ll pry get in little ways before it gets dark. We’re in the sportsman you TV class so we’re starting like second to the last row so I think it’ll be a long day for us. I don’t see us coming into the finish line before 2 a.m. so hopefully, I have a clean run.

We requested we get help safely from our best ambassador the desert official. We’re not going to get DNF so we’re going good. We were start off in fourth place had a flat tire before pit one and then one guy went down another guy broke so we got up to second place before pit three here but goes 75 miles an hour on the sill bed and then overheated. So we’ve been stuck for probably 15 minutes and that’s all right. So I’ll bring it a Toback cooled a car down and get back on. Again. It. Because. The fans. On your side, we have an unfair.
