If you see a rather large dust cloud rising over Parker, Arizona this weekend, don’t worry that the Apocalypse is upon us. This weekend marks the 42nd running of the Parker 425 off-road desert race. It’s gonna be loud and it’s gonna be dirty. The Parker 425 course features all kinds of madness for those crazy enough to get in the drive’s seat: 425 miles of deep sand, dry river beds, rocky outcrops, silt and even some mud depending on the weather.
Roberts Racing has used the limited time available since the final Best In The Desert race of 2014, the Henderson 250 and the season opening Parker 425, to fine tune their already solid program. With only days left before one of the toughest races in the Best In The Desert racing series, the team is now stronger than ever and filled with enthusiasm for 2015. The Racer Engineering cars of Andy Lambert and Jared Roberts are fully prepped for Parker as is Dale Dondel’s incredibly fast Trick Truck.
