Alumi Craft racers earned amazing results at the Best In The Desert series Laughlin Desert Classic race in Laughlin, Nevada. Not only did they take the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 11th places, but Brock Heger put another win on the board making this his 4th win out of 4 starts in his Alumi Craft class 10 car. The Desert classic is all about speed. Taking place on a short, 16 mile loop, 4 lap heats take place on Saturday and Sunday. The fastest combined times from both days determine the winner. The miles are few and the course is very fast, leaving no time for strategy or tactics. When asked what the strategy was for the race, Heger replied, “Hold it pinned!”
“On day one I was too conservative,” says Heger, “We were second by 5 seconds. Jake told me to stop points racing and go for the win. On Sunday, we charged and won by 4 or 5 minutes. Alumi Craft gives us an awesome car and Jake Velasco makes it flawless; we’ve had zero issues. He takes care of all the preparation; I just get in and hit the gas. I’m so stoked to go 4 for 4.”
Alumi Craft racer Christian Fessler climbed all the way to 3rd place on the podium after mounting a serious charge on Saturday. “We were 4th on time after Saturday,” says Fessler, “We started back in 12th, so we passed a lot of cars. Our Alumi Craft was absolutely perfect again. We had the car set up low and left the spare tire in the pits. If you get a flat tire here, you just lost. I did decide to run a navigator in the right seat. The course was fast and the wind was enough so that dust was not an issue.” Fessler climbed another spot to 3rd place overall on Sunday with 2nd in his sights, but 4 laps go by really fast.
