CANIDAE Racing Gears up for Best in the Desert Blue Water Desert Challenge

The CANIDAE Off Road Racing Trophy Truck team will compete at the Best in the Desert Blue Water race in Parker, Arizona this October 13th through 16th. Recently, at the Vegas to Reno race, the CANIDAE Team drove hard and powered through the rugged terrain to achieve a strong 5th in their class, only 21 seconds off 4th place, and only 7 minutes shy of a podium finish. At the end of the Vegas to Reno race, CANIDAE Racing driver Scott Whipple said, "What an awesome day. We have the best crew who worked together as a team flawlessly." Whipple's comment capped off one of the best performances the team has turned in since entering the Trophy Truck class.

At this next race, the team will take on the challenge of a 26 mile loop course near the Blue Water Resort and Casino in Parker. This is a 3 lap race repeating each day of that weekend for a total of 146 miles for the Trophy Truck class entrants. Racers will take on the famous Parker Python, a rough section of jumps during the third and final lap of each day as spectators cheer them on. Combined results from both days determine the winners.
