The Best In The Desert Silver State 300 is a huge test for desert racers and their equipment. The course climbs and descends on tight, twisty mountain trails that weave through the trees. It also traverses wide open valleys that have the cars banging off the rev limiter. Deep, power robbing silt beds pop up out of nowhere and rocks are a constant threat to wheels and tires. With so many pitfalls on the course, drivers need a car they can depend on. When 20 class 1000 competitors showed up to race, the results were striking. Alumi Craft cars took the victory, third place on the podium, 5th, 6th, 7th and 9th places. Six Alumi Crafts that entered the race finished in the top ten.
Out of all the impressive drives put in none was more impressive than the victory put in by Cody Robinson and Kyle Conlon who each took a turn behind the wheel of their single seat Alumi Craft class 10 car. Kyle started the race from the 10th starting position. By race mile 80, he was leading all other class 10’s. He stopped at mile 150 where Cody took over. Cody took the car to the class 10 victory. He beat all other class 10’s but also many of the Trick Trucks, Unlimited 1500 cars and class 6100 trucks that started ahead of him. 21 Trick Trucks, 16 class 1500’s and 21 6100 cars all started before Cody and Kyle; that’s a total of 58. They beat all but 14; finishing in the 15th overall position.
The results in Nevada are impressive but there was also a race held down the length of the Baja Peninsula a few days earlier; the NORRA, Mexican 1000. Alumi Craft got two more podium finishes in Baja. Walker Evans was second in the Pro Unlimited class behind Robby Gordon and third place overall.
Standing right beside Walker was Butch Jensen in third place Pro Unlimited and 4th place overall. Walker Evans is more than a legend in off-road racing; he’s an icon. Butch Jensen might not be famous like Walker but he has driven nearly every road in Baja. Both were driving Alumi Craft Grande Pre-runners.
There is a reason Walker Evans and Butch Jensen choose Alumi Craft. They recognize quality, craftsmanship and superior design when they see it. They came to the Mexican 1000 to go fast and have fun. They trust Alumi Craft to get them to the finish line with no problems. In fact, Butch usually finishes the 1000 and then drives his Grande all the way back home.
