TXR Press Release regarding the Parker 425...
Team Xterra Racing - pushing it till there is no more left to give!!!
Parker 425 was a huge success! We were able to hang with the big boys for a full lap and then some. Finishing a total of 150 miles of this treacherous race, TXR would be among the other 114 that DNFed (217 starters). Needless to say, Parker ate up a bunch of racers.
What went right: TXR did everything to show that its commitment to Nissan, TXR Sponsors and fans was and will continue to be our first priority.
The race would not be a cakewalk, losing all braking control for 7 miles (that was fixed by Team Donahue Racing, Thanks guys!!!) and then immediately after pulling out of the pits with mechanical troubles with the rear axle, the team made all efforts to weld the broken parts and continue to race. With a limping 3 wheel drive racer and a whooped out course it would only be a matter of time for end would come; the passion for continueing on, however, never faded. The team stuck together and pushed all of its supporters until the battle was over.
TXR's excitement and pursuit of the Class 3100 title is still the goal, currently in 3rd place with 38 points, 3 points behind 2nd and 37 points behind the leader. One win, one mind, one Team! TXR!
TXR is sponsored by several large entities. Nissan, Nismo, Fox Shocks, PIAA, National Springs, DJ Safety, Speedhut, EVCO, Double D Bolt and CWI Hosting.
It is because of great sponsors, Xterraracer is able compete on this level. We thank our sponsors!
We invite you to continue to follow TXR. Watch for more exciting coverage on our forum; additionally follow us live on IriTrack at Race the World's website for all Best in the Desert races...
Just remember one thing: You can either make dust or eat dust, we hope you are hungry!
