In Lesser Desert Racing News
 
"Jason Voss has a strong lead over Gary Weyhrich coming off his second win of the year in the Best in the Desert series.


“We’re trying not to get too excited,” said Voss. “We’ve had a good year so far but we’re not going to change our plans going into Parker.
We want to win and since this next race is a two-day short sprint I think that it suits our truck very well. It’s a lot like motocross and I really like that style of racing, it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Coming off his win at the Reno 500, Tim Herbst is leading over Justin Davis in the SCORE/HDRA World Championship Series points.
“We’ve been running a lot better and without a doubt it’s a team effort,” Herbst said. “Mike Smith and the guys prepping the truck and with the help of Larry Roeseler and Ryan Arciero we’re starting to get good results. We like to win and getting that win in Reno was great.
Now we’re focused on the Mirage 300 coming up and of course the Baja 1000. It’s easy to lose focus with a big race like the 1000 coming up but we’re committed and hopefully when it’s all done we’ll have a championship.”
With only two races left in each series we’ll see who will bring home the glory. Mathematically there are a few others in contention. In the end it will come down to teamwork, preparation, logistics and a lot of luck."
