Las Vegas, NV

The Best In The Desert, Vegas to Reno race, is the longest off-road race in the United States. It’s also one of the fastest. Filled with fire roads and long smooth sections, it’s a sprint race from start to finish. It is also the one-year anniversary for Roberts Racing.

In the Roberts Racing debut, driver Dale Dondel had the fastest qualifying time but clipped a cone during time trials. The resulting penalty put the team back in 10th starting position. The setback did nothing to slow the team down; they fought back to the front and finished in second place.

The flat-out speed at Vegas to Reno suits Dale Dondel and his #7, Roberts Racing, Toyo Tires, Specialized Automation Services, Racer Engineering, MOMO, King Shocks, KC HiLites, Howe Power Steering and F&L Racing Fuel Trick Truck perfectly. Dale’s speed is uncanny; he has laid down the fastest qualifying time a record 9 straight times.

The Roberts Racing team will be working to capitalize on their speed as they negotiate over 500 miles of rocks, ruts and silt in the Nevada Desert.
