The first race of the 2015 General Tire Trophylite Race Series lived up to the hype. A stacked field of numerous seasoned veterans also featured a group of new teams to Trophylite. Jason Cobb of KC Hilites took one of the House Rental trucks and battled this tough Parker course. SWB Motorsports ran up front with the lead pack all day and finished 3rd while 2014 Trophylite Champs began their run to defend their title and finished 2nd with B3 Driving the first lap and Braden running the final 2 laps. But it would be Todd Jackson and the Premier Garage / Tailored Living Trophylite who would take the lead heading out on lap 3 and held on to win. - Read Press Release
The BITD Parker 425 is the first race of the 2015 General Tire race series. A race for a fresh new start on the season where new teams have been formed, others have taken a look at the past season to see how they can improve to make a run at the championship. A short video here of how Children of the Dirt is taking a look at the upcoming season. Join us in Parker, AZ on February 7th as TrophyLite teams battle for the top spot on the podium.
TrophyLite is constantly trying to improve the product, always working closely with vendors to create updates and modification to increase performance, reliability and safety of the truck. Testing like this is necessary to help the class grow. So at the Henderson 250, Tony Sato of Currie Enterprises put about 160 miles on a new torque converter designed to increase and hold the rpm better between shifts. Tony found this converter will definitely help with the truck 'bog' when shifting from 2nd to 3rd. Some more tweaks will be needed but another test may come at the 2015 Parker 425. Stay Tuned!
