|Lofton goes off-roading...|
Lofton returns to his pre-NASCAR roots this weekend to compete in the Henderson "250" with the Best in the Desert (BITD) Off-Road Racing Association. Lofton, the defending champion of the race, will defend his title at the wheel of his No. 1577 Class 1500 Unlimited Jimco entry sponsored by Lofton Cattle, General Tire, South Point Hotel & Casino, Impact, Fox Racing Shocks, SPEED Energy, J6 INK, and Jimco Racing Inc.
Lofton will join Jorge Lameda to take on 16 other vehicles in their class, participating in the third race of the day with a green flag scheduled to fly shortly after 12:30 p.m. local time Saturday. The Henderson "250" is made up of three laps around an approximately 80-mile loop across the Nevada desert, where competitors will be faced with large rocks, steep drop-offs and cliffs. Qualifying took place Thursday, with Lofton qualifying in second place.
This year’s event will decide the Class Champions, Rookie of the Year, and the recipient of the Camburg Best In The Desert Award-an award presented to the fastest driver per mile for every race.
