Over 500 miles of hot and dusty terrain was no match for Quad75Dezert. Two of their three teams finished the race; one team getting a podium position and a top 10 position overall! The Best in the Desert Vegas to Reno had a record number of entries this year, leaving competitors with “no rock unturned” in their preparations. Several champion riders came out to compete as well as veterans of the sport. Quads had 27 total entries and the top two quads finished within the top 10 overall, getting 8th and 9th behind some of the fastest bikes. Read More

Quad75Dezert Leaves for Vegas to Reno

Posted by Q75 admin on Tuesday Aug 14, 2012 Under 2012, BITD, News

Quad75Dezert is leaving the Northwest and heading South for the Best in the Desert’s General Tire Vegas to Reno Race. The 530 mile race takes place on Friday the 17th and will conclude that day in Reno. Normally riders Jorie Williams and Brandon Brown would be taking the Q10 race bike from Beatty, NV to the finish, however this year’s race has applied a lot of changes to the program, some of them very last-minute.

The original plan was to have three teams under the Quad75Dezert banner. Jorie Williams and Brandon Brown on one bike, Kenny Sanford and Jamie Kirkpatrick on a second bike, and Sean and Mary McHugh on a third bike. Sean and Mary have been helping the Quad75Dezert racers in Mexico with parts from their TCS Motorsports company as well as coming down to pit and chase for the team. This year, the husband and wife duo decided to take on a challenge of their own – get in shape and race the Vegas to Reno. Their plan seems to be the only one unchanged. A misunderstanding has left a shipment of much needed parts nowhere to be found for two of the race bikes, and currently Jorie Williams is out with an infection, resulting in needing his wisdom teeth removed just days before the race. The McHughs are nervous, but ready. “It’s still not quite feeling real yet,” Mary McHugh said via phone, “We are going to be in Vegas on Friday, the race is going to start, and we are going to see what we can do!”

Quad75Dezert headed south to Las Vegas on August 17th for the 2011 BITD Vegas to Reno race, to be followed up by returning to the Northwest to race the Washougal round of WORCS. The team drew the first starting position off the Pro ATV line and left the start at approximately 6:10AM. Jorie Williams started the race and would ride for the first two pits and then switch with Brandon Brown at approximately 90 miles into the event. The two riders would then rotate on and off the bike for the next 460 miles until the finish line while the chase vehicles alternated pit stops. Unfortunately, at approximately race mile 150 the team was met with a mechanical failure and their race would be ended early. “For some reason we all really want to win this race,” Brandon said, “We screwed up and didn’t get to the second pit in time for Jorie who had to get gas from another team. He lost his lead while trying to get fuel and fell back as far as fourth before continuing.” Jorie left the second pit with determination and passed the riders ahead of him to put him into second place coming into the third pit where Brandon got on the bike.
