Brock Heger Wins Class 10 And Finishes 15th Overall At Silver State 300
May 11, 2018
Alumi Craft racer Brock Heger had an impressive race at one of the most challenging courses in the Best In The Desert series. The Silver State 300 has every type of challenging terrain imaginable. Dry lake beds, twisty tree lined mountain trails, silt beds, dry rocky sections, even deep water crossings are encountered in the 300 miles that make up the course. As the racers made a huge loop through Caliente, Panaca, and then back towards Alamo, Nevada, the terrain was constantly changing. Heger started on the pole thanks to his win at the Mint 400, and never looked back. Not only did he out-pace the entire class 10 field, but he passed many of the unlimited cars and trucks that started the race ahead of him. He passed many of the 20, 6100 trucks and finished 15th overall.
“We had another flawless race and I have to thank Jake Velasco for the amazing prep he did on the car,” Said Heger, “I have never raced the Silver State 300, but it was such a fun race because of the different scenery it had to offer and how much the course changed. It was super dusty starting behind the 6100 trucks. We knew we would have to pick off a bunch of them to keep a good group of trucks between us and the next class 10 car. We finished behind 4 6100 trucks physically, but with corrected time, we were faster than all but one truck. It can get sketchy battling with the heavier trucks but my co-driver Quentin Tucker helped me navigate through the dusty conditions.”
