2014 Best In the Desert Silver State 300

3 May, 2014  Las Vegas Nevada -

     Chad Hall and Sam Cothrun teamed up to win class 6100, Trophy Truck Spec in the 3rd Best In the Desert race of the season. With the Chevy Sliverado‚Äôs 4 wheel drive and the twisty mountain roads of North Eastern Nevada, it was their race to lose.  Chad started 6130 in 9th spot out of 11. By Pit 1, 6130 had moved into 5th position on the road and by pit 2, Chad was first on the road and in first place. The truck ran flawlessly until a brake banjo came loose around race mile 110. Chad had to back the pace down a little with no rear brakes. Sam got into 6130 at pit 4, race mile 147.  The BFG Pits got the banjo repaired and the master cylinder filled. Sam got back on the road with a 10 minute lead over the 6158 of Tony Smiley and Jeff Geiser.  Sam ran trouble free with the only goal of not stopping. At race mile 235, the rear brake banjo came loose again causing Sam to have to back it down. At pit 7 , race mile 265, the pit crew repaired the banjo again and Sam was able to bring home for a win with a 7 minute lead over 6158.
