The final race for the Motorcycle and UTV classes took place this past weekend in the high desert and mountains surrounding the historical silver mining town of Tonopah, Nevada. Featuring one race for the Motorcycles and another for the UTVs, it was a great day full of tight and challenging competition.
The second race on Saturday showcased the UTV classes on a 140-mile tight and technical racecourse. Can-Am’s Dustin Jones was first across the finish line to take the Turbo Pro and overall win with an impressive time of 02:33:31.184. Joe Terrana followed Jones by a little over one minute for second Turbo Pro. Finishing third Turbo Pro and overall was Vito Ranuio less than two minutes behind Jones. Ranuio’s third-place finish was enough to secure the 2022 Turbo Pro Class Championship for himself.
Other UTV class winners included Michael McFayden taking Trophy Unlimited, Mitchell Alsup in Super Stock, and Josh Row grabbing N/A Pro.
Best In The Desert racers will now celebrate their season and take a well-deserved break during the holidays before getting back to the dirt for the 2023 Parker 250 and Parker 425 January 4-9.
