Boy Scout Western Massachusetts Council Steven Harrel rips off sponsors, just another desert racing scam!

The "BOY SCOUT Venture Crew 35" Sponsor Hose Story

After grabbing up a bunch of Vegas To Reno sponsors, he bailed on the effort at the last minute. Then he shows up in Vegas!

He admitted, "I co-dogged it with Old Green and the Rumble Goats. Had the time of our lives. Can't wait to do it again. Thanks for askin', man. It's good to know you guys are keeping track of us scouts and our project. You have no idea how good it feels to know people are interested in what we're doing. Especially people in the desert racing community."

Harrell used the internet to scam his victims.

About the rip-off artist Steven Harrell, he's out of Springfield, Mass. He's the leader of Boy Scout Venture Crew 35 which is (WAS) currently building a 7300/stock mini truck to race in Vegas to Reno and the Baja 1000. For those curious about all that technical stuff, it's a 1998 Ranger extended cab with the 4.0 V6 motor. He said, "We're running on BFG Baja T/A's mounted on ATX Series Mojave rims, that was a sponsor plug, by the way."

Here's the list of sponsors who got shafted: KC HiLiTES, K&N Filters,, Slime, Autism Society of America, Rory'

He also mentioned publicly, "We're building our cage right now and hope to have the truck pretty much done before it snows."

He pulled out at the last minute, then co-drove some other teams ride in the race. Slimey!

Mr. Harrell, how much money did you raise from selling bogus race t-shirts?

Gotta have some gamblin' money, right!
