While many competitors in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) take time to rest during the "off season," Justin Lofton returns to his roots to compete in the Henderson "250" with the Best in the Desert (BITD) Off-Road Racing Association. Driving the No. 1577 Class 1500 Unlimited Jimco sponsored by Lofton Cattle, General Tire, South Point Hotel & Casino, Impact, Fox Racing Shocks, SPEED Energy, J6 INK, and Jimco Racing Inc., Lofton will compete to defend his win at this race from one year ago against the Best in the Desert regulars for top bragging rights.
Competing in Class 1500, Lofton will join Jorge Lameda to take on 16 other vehicles in their class. The group will participate in the third race of the day, which is scheduled to take the green flag shortly after 12:30 p.m. local time on Saturday afternoon. The Henderson "250" will include three laps around an approximately 80-mile loop across the Nevada desert where competitors will be faced with large rocks, steep drop-offs and cliffs. Qualifying took place on Thursday with Lofton reportedly qualifying in second place.
Everyone is invited to come to Henderson, Nev., to see all of the race vehicles and meet the racers prior to the Henderson "250" as they sign autographs by their vehicles. With some very tight championship battles on the line, the event will be pivotal as it will decide the Class Champions, Rookie of the Year, and the recipient of the Camburg Best In The Desert Award-an award presented to the fastest driver per mile for every race.
